In the Expert Forum, the big question is what new drive functionalities we can expect from connectivity and AI between today and 2035. Welcome to the December 2018 issue of the CTI Mag. In the automotive industry, drive diversity and drive complexity continue to shape research and development activities.
You missed the CTI SYMPOSIUM in Germany? Then take a look at the exciting podium discussion. Topics: Which energy source will power tomorrow‘s mobility? What are its implications for the drivetrain? Moderator: Ulrich Walter
TU Munich scientists created the electric car “aCar” specifically for application in rural areas in Africa. Five years ago, scientists at the TU Munich began building a car that is supposed to improve mobility in developing countries within the course of a research project, thus opening a new possibility of … Continue reading “aCar : TU Munich develops electric car for Africa”
The Magsplit transmission device splits propulsion power magnetically. In operation, it offers greater efficiency with superior NVH compared to the alternatives. As a power split, the launch quality is smooth and tunably progressive, whether driving purely electrically or with the combustion engine. As electrification proliferates, hybrids must continue to offer … Continue reading “The MAGSPLIT® Hybrid Transmission”
