Dritev – Drivetrain for Vehicles 2019: Full programme now available

March 25, 2019

The full conference programme for the VDI Transmission Congress ‘Dritev – Drivetrain for Vehicles 2019’, organised by VDI Wissenforum GmbH, is now available online. The congress will take place in Bonn, Germany, July 10-11, 2019, and is set to address current developments and challenges in the vehicle drivetrain industry.

A number of OEM presentations by key global automotive producers have been announced, including presentations by Toyota, Audi, Volvo, Volkswagen, Ford and more. The overall programme of lectures and parallel events will feature 80 specialist speakers, making Dritev what is believed to be one of the largest networking platforms for automotive powertrain and transmission development.

Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH) will be a special thematic focus at Dritev 2019. NVH refers to both audible and tactile vibrations in motor vehicles in the range from 20–100 Hz, and Dritev will showcase how innovative analysis techniques can be used to identify and reduce these vibrations. Another special topic will be the increase in powertrain power density, and the use of new materials and procedures to aid with this development.

Other topics up for discussion during the congress will be:

  • Current and future requirements on the transmission and powertrain
  • Future-oriented drive systems and transmission concepts in passenger cars and commercial vehicles
  • Challenges in integration into the vehicles and transmission controls
  • Transmission components, lubricants and tribology
  • Innovative materials and development methods
  • Potentials for optimisation transmission manufacturing

At the accompanying VDI specialist conference ‘Powertrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles’, numerous powertrain development experts from Germany and abroad will to discuss drive and transmission concepts, market development and possible operating strategies. In addition, the international VDI conference’ EDrive’ will run parallel to Dritev, providing an in-depth look at the systemic and component-related development of electrified powertrains.

The full conference programme is available to view on the event website.
