7th international VDI conference Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles
- Use the conference to exchange information and experiences with leading representatives from industry and research.
- Profit from extensive networking opportunities during the breaks and at the evening reception.
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.
The VDI conference ‘Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles’ will deal with these top issues in 2021:
- 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
Learn from best practices and attend specialist lectures from, for example, the following companies:
AVL Commercial Driveline & Tractor Engineering | BPW Bergische Achsen | Brudeli Green Mobilty | ESCRYPT | Faun Umwelttechnik | FEV Europe | Ford Otosan | Fraunhofer ISE | Fraunhofer-Institut für Verkehrs- und Infrastruktursysteme IVI | Hino Motors | Hyundai Motor Company | IAV | J.M. Voith | Liebherr-Mischtechnik | MAHLE Filtersysteme | MAN Truck & Bus | RhoMotion | Scania | VDA | ZF Friedrichshafen •| ZF Group, Commercial Vehicle Control Systems, WABCO
For the conference lectures simultaneous interpreting (German - English) via headphones will provided.
One-day seminars – on the day before the conference (‘Entwicklung und Funktion brennstoffzellenbasierter Antriebssysteme’, ‘Chancen für die agile Systementwicklung durch ASD-Agile Systems Design’ or ‘NVH im E-Antriebsstrang’) must be booked separately, and are only offered in the German language.
Under the direction of our conference chairman Thomas Landsherr, Vice President, MAN Truck & Bus SE, Engineering Powertrain - Transmission and Driveability Development (EPD), München, Germany and together with our top-class program committee, we have put together a two-day specialist program with exciting keynotes and numerous practical examples. You will shortly find details of the program schedule here.
What else can you expect at the VDI conference?
One ticket, two conferences - you can encounter new ideas and stimuli not only at the lectures of the ‘Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles‘ conference, you can also switch free of charge between the parallel series of lectures at the congress 'Dritev' This offers a great opportunity to meet a lot of like-minded people, talk shop with the experts and exchange new ideas.
The joint evening event offers all participants an excellent option of networking with experts from Germany and abroad. Take advantage of this opportunity to exchange ideas face-to-face with your drive and transmission community and take away new ideas.
A Motor Show and the Trade Exhibition will be held in parallel with the conference. More than 100 national and international exhibitors will present innovative solutions in the field of drive systems. The motor show brings vehicle concepts to life for you.
Take advantage of our entire supporting program and round off your conference visit.
