Climate Neutrality in the Transport Sector Would Be Possible More Quickly

Professor Dr.-Ing. Peter Gutzmer, an expert in drive systems and head of the International Engine Congress, calls for more technological openness, a focus on e-fuels and hybridization and greater involvement of the existing fleet. In our interview, he answers key questions on topics that will also be discussed in depth at the Engine Congress.

Achieving CO2 Targets More Efficiently with More Flexibility and Technological Openness

The 11th International Engine Congress will discuss the future significance of combustion engines against the backdrop of reducing CO2 emissions as quickly and effectively as possible. In the run-up to the event, Benjamin Krieger, Secretary General of the European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA), explains the need for a broad and flexible approach that does not focus solely on battery-electric drives.

Mastering Transformation

The challenges are well known - but the automotive world still seems to be having difficulty finding suitable solutions. Long-time industry expert and consultant Joachim Langenwalter summarizes his diagnosis of the current situation in this short denominator

High Integration Characterizes the E/E Architectures of Tomorrow

The top trends of digitization, electrification, autonomous driving and connectivity are decisively shaping the E/E architectures in tomorrow's automobiles. The domain-oriented E/E architectures that still predominate lead to functional interdependencies that are almost impossible to manage. According to Dipl.-Ing. Kai Lars Barbehön (Vice President Central Control Units, Wire Harness, Power Supply of the BMW Group, Munich), one of the keynote speakers at the International VDI Congress ELIV 2023, the solutions for a holistic E/E architecture approach are obvious: The high integration of former domain computers in powerful integration platforms is just as much a part of this as zonal wiring system architectures.

Open Source Opens the Space for Innovation

Michael Plagge is Vice President Ecosystem Development at the Eclipse Foundation. He is responsible for the maintenance and growth of the Eclipse ecosystem. At the International VDI Congress ELIV, he will report on the Foundation's current projects and take part in a panel discussion on the topic of open source. In the run-up to the event, he answers our questions.
