Advanced All Wheel Drive Systems 2015

As the market for new vehicles continues to improve and crossover and pickup sales have caught fire, it's no surprise that the sales of all-wheel-drive (and four-wheel-drive) vehicles are also on the rise. OEMs are aiming to satisfy the growing demand for vehicle stability, safety, and enhanced driving dynamics. These factors are fueling the adoption of AWD-systems, particularly among the C and D vehicle segments. However, the major shift to AWD based on FWD passenger car platforms rather than body-on-frame 4WD light trucks is leading to a big transition to AWD in the B- and C-segments.

The combination of Powertrain electrification with All Wheel Drive (AWD) Systems is promising affordability and better price efficiencies for both technologies and offering a fast and reliable solution to reach CO2 emission targets by 2020. Many suppliers have developed already concepts to suit the needs of several vehicle segments. However, many obstacles are yet to be removed.

Join us for two days of learning sessions, enlightening dialogues and debates, and in-depth workshop sessions with a high level of interactivity.

Why attend?

  • Get in-depth insights about innovations in mechanical AWD
  • Learn how to improve disconnection with innovative clutches technologies to optimize fuel efficiency
  • Listen to strategies to combine powertrain electrification with eAWD to optimize price efficiency and affordability
  • Discuss various eAWD concepts for different segments and how to deal with the trade-off performance vs. costs
  • Learn from control systems engineers about latest innovations in Torque Vectoring technologies
