Conference Report

More than 100 experts came together on November 21 and 22, 2017, for the 6th ATZ Conference "Friction Minimization in the Powertrain" to discuss current developments and challenges in this field.

System Understanding Opens up New Possibilities

Friction minimization is particularly key in this era of ever more restrictive legislation and even more ambitious CO2 thresholds. In the words of Dr. Johannes Liebl, Editor in Charge of ATZ, MTZ and ATZelektronik, to open the Esslingen Conference, it is a key pillar of efficient engines and transmissions and an important lever in achieving CO2 thresholds.

A Holistic View of Electric Mobility

In his keynote address to around 100 experts from research and development, automotive suppliers and OEMs, as well as universities, Prof. Dr. Peter Gutzmer, Deputy CEO at Schaeffler, discussed the overall mobility system. Less needed to be said about CO2-free and more about CO2-neutral mobility. To achieve this goal, Schaeffler is focusing on components...
