For more than three decades, the VDI Transmission Congress has been informing and networking industry experts from all over the world. The ‘Dritev – Drivetrain for Vehicles 2019’, in Bonn from 10th to 11th July, addresses current developments and challenges in the industry – from electrification to Noise Vibration Harshness.
The powertrain is undergoing change: in addition to the challenges of electrification and hybridisation of the drives, it is also about the detail optimization of existing technical solutions. A cross-component, systemic approach is becoming increasingly important. This is exactly where Dritev comes in with its lectures and parallel events. More than 1,500 developers, around 100 international exhibitors and 80 specialist lectures are expected at the networking platform for powertrain and transmission development in 2019.
A special thematic focus of the Dritev 2019 is on the special topic Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH), which is both audible and tactile vibrations in motor vehicles in the range from 20 to 100Hz. Innovative analysis techniques identify these vibrations, reduce them and thus increase ride comfort for the passengers. Another special topic is the increase in powertrain power density. Here, the use of new materials and procedures should help.
Other top topics are for example:
- 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 optimization transmission manufacturing.
At the accompanying VDI specialist conference ‘Powertrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles’, numerous powertrain development experts from Germany and abroad will meet again to discuss drive and transmission concepts, market development and possible operating strategies. In addition, the international VDI conference ‘EDrive’ will take place at the same time. The event provides an in-depth look at the systemic and component-related development of electrified powertrains.
The Dritev is simultaneously translated into English.
