Transmission control - What can you expect?

The control of modern transmissions in vehicles is increasingly important against the backdrop of increasing automation and the environmental compatibility of vehicles.

Shifting comfort, ride properties as well as noise and consumption reduction are significantly influenced by controls. The transmission control unit also plays an important role in the development of autonomous and electrified drives.

The following topics are in focus at the 3rd VDI symposium “Control solutions for transmissions”:

  • Innovative drivetrain architecture and control strategies
  • Actuators – Efficiency of auxiliary units
  • New actuator- and sensorsystems
  • Efficient use of simulation and software for transmission control
  • HEV and BEV in the context of transmission control

With experts from

AUDI – BorgWarner – Continental – Hofer - IAV - IMB - MBtech - Robert Bosch -  Vector Informatik - Vocis Limited - ZF Friedrichshafen

  • Attend the only event of its kind in Europe with a focus on transmission control.
  • Get to know the latest trends and developments in the control of transmissions.
  • Expand your professional network.
  • Visit the parallel events "Drivetrain in vehicles" and "Transmissions in commercial vehicles" including simultaneous translation free-of-charge.

Who should attend?

The conference will provide an ideal opportunity to discuss current trends and developments with experts and managers from the transmission development sector (hardware and software) as well as from the sensor field.

Especially addressed are specialists and leaders from the following areas:

  • Transmission development
  • Powertrain development
  • Software development
  • Sensor development
  • Simulation and testing

Book 1 conference, visit 3

The conference will be held parallel to the International Transmission Congress and the “Transmissions in commercial vehicles” Conference. Participants of the "Control solutions for transmissions" Conference can visit the presentations of the parallel events free-of-charge.
