Maritim Hotel, Berlin. The 12th International CTI Symposium and its flanking specialist exhibition is aimed at people seeking the latest developments in automotive transmissions and drives for passenger and commercial vehicles. Drivetrain and transmission are important for all customer-oriented vehicle characteristics. They can particularly help to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions considerably. Hence it is not surprising that car developers place their focus on drivetrains and transmissions in view of the tighter emissions regulations which will come into effect in 2020. This does not only apply to heavy premium cars, but also to all other vehicle segments including electric cars. The event will feature the latest drivetrain and transmission developments, concepts, components and systems. Featured speakers include experts from BMW, Siemens, Getrag, Bosch Transmission Technology, RWTH Aachen and more. Special sessions focus on CVT, commercial vehicles and functional safety.
