SAE International to Host Two Symposia on All-Wheel Drive and Transmission Technologies

WARRENDALE, Pa., June 7, 2016 - All-wheel drive and transmission/driveline technologies will be on display during two, co-located symposia from SAE International.

The SAE 2016 Transmission and Driveline Technologies Symposium and the SAE 2016 All-Wheel Drive Symposium will be held Oct. 17-19 at the Marriott Ann Arbor Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest, Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA.

The SAE 2016 Transmission & Driveline Symposium is the source for continuous technical information about the latest innovations of the design, manufacture and operation of these systems in the passenger car and heavy duty markets. The forum is essential for executives, engineers, researchers and developers working in the global transmission industry. Attendees will receive updates on the direction of the industry, along with technologies under development to meet emission regulations, improvements in fuel efficiency, and customer satisfaction as it relates to the drivability and performance of their vehicles.

All-wheel drive systems, a significant element of vehicle stability and safety packages, create unique challenges for manufacturers, increasing the cost, power consumption, and weight of a vehicle, and decreasing fuel economy. The SAE 2016 All-Wheel Drive Symposium will bring together key passenger car and light truck designers, suppliers, engineers and managers for a discussion focused on all-wheel drive technologies, new developments and solutions.

Attendees of both events can experience the technologies during the Ride & Drive at Fowlerville Proving Ground.
