Parallel conference

Already years ago the congress has developed into a platform also for related industries and topics. Next to the main congress “DRITEV” there are parallel running conferences to offer an deep insight into all aspects of drivetrain technology. In 2021 for example, the additional focus will be on powertrain solutions for commercial vehicles.

The special plus for the participants of the congress and conferences:

  • free access to all technical presentations offered on site
  • This enables a genuine cross-industry and cross-functional exchange among the technical experts.

Please find below more details to the parallel running conference in 2021.

7th international VDI conference

Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles

At the 7th International Conference "Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles" on October 13th and 14th 2021 major players in the commercial vehicle sector will give an insight into the latest developments of powertrain solutions that solely run on battery power as well as concepts based on hybrid and conventional solutions.

Multiple solutions for the drive train of commercial vehicles

In light of CO2 regulations getting more and more stringent, commercial vehicle manufacturers are faced with the development of alternatives to replace the conventional powertrain. Although a battery-powered solution is particularly attractive for city traffic, it does not seem to be doable for heavy commercial traffic due to capacity and weight-saving reasons – at least in the medium term. Therefore hybrid concepts and synthetic fuels are of crucial interest.

Main topics in 2021 will be:

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions based on driveline optimization
  • Discussion of new drive technologies: BEV, fuel cells, e-PTO
  • Dimensions and scale of electrical component e.g. e-axles
  • Best practices for the hybridization of commercial vehicles
  • Future and improvements in efficiency of conventional powertrains
  • Data and Security in the Drive System
  • EE-architecture and Vehicle Integration

Chairman of the conference:
Thomas Landsherr,
Vice President, MAN Truck & Bus SE, Engineering Powertrain - Transmission and Driveability Development (EPD), Munich, Germany
