Drivetrain for Vehicles congress announces move to Bonn

Following many successful events in Friedrichshaften, this year’s International VDI Congress ‘Drivetrain for Vehicles’ moves to Bonn, Germany. Taking place at the World Conference Center, July 5-6, 2017, the 17th event in the series will once again offer a conference and exhibition focussed on all aspects of transmission and powertrain technology.

The exhibition, which over the years has grown to become a major marketplace, will see over 100 organisations from around the world present their solutions covering all aspects of the automotive transmission and its components.

Likewise, the International Congress will be accompanied by several events. The VDI conference ‘Control and Regulation of Transmissions’ where the optimisation potential in transmission control (e.g. optimised driving properties, making gearshift systems more comfortable, reduced fuel consumption and lower noise level) will be addressed. At the same time the VDI conference ‘Drivetrains for Commercial Vehicles’ will be held, where experts share the latest innovations and industry trends, showcase current development achievements and give an overview of the present market situation.

Key topics at the ‘Drivetrains for Vehicles’ include:

  • Hybrid concepts and hybrid transmissions
  • 48V hybridisation
  • Simulation/testing technology
  • Dual clutch transmission
  • Automation transmission/CVT
  • Control and regulation of transmissions
  • Drivetrains for Commercial vehicles
  • Electric drive

Organised by the Association of German Engineers (VDI), the two day congress is expected to attract over 1,500 participants keen to hear and discuss the key issues affecting this sector of the automotive industry.
