Registration Now Open for SAE International’s Transmission & Driveline Technologies Symposium

WARRENDALE, Pa., May 15, 2017 - SAE International announces the opening of registration for the Transmission & Driveline Technologies Symposium which will be held in Dearborn, Michigan at the Ford Conference Center on November 14-15, 2017. The Transmission and Driveline Technologies Symposium brings together key executives, engineers, researchers and suppliers to discuss the latest innovations in the design, manufacture and operation of these technologies.

The need for increased vehicle efficiency and performance across every combination of region, market segment, and application results in an ever-growing range of transmission and driveline technologies. The Syposium’s technical program will address the latest developments including autonomous driving impacts, electrification (48V & AWD), controls and simulation, lightweighting, launch devices, high performance and more.

In addition to the numerous technical sessions, the program will also feature an executive panel and keynote address. Recently confirmed, Prof. Dr. Peter Johannes Tenberge, the Chair of Industrial and Automotive Drivetrains at Ruhr-University Bochum in Germany, will give the keynote address on electrification with an emphasis and specific detailed example on forward parallel hybrid constructions and in specific global regions. The executive panel will focus on the impact of growing acceptance of shared-mobility on vehicle volumes and will discuss whether or not the end of traditional transmissions and drivelines are near.

The Symposium also hosts a dynamic exhibition featuring the industry‘s leading companies. Up to 30 companies are expected to showcase the latest products and innovations providing attendees with the chance to experience products and service solutions first-hand.
