Title: Digitalization and New Mobility Solution



The international automotive industry is under pressure because of the tectonic shifts such as climate change and growing urbanization and we all know, it is changing societal requirements and customer preferences toward motility and mobility in the future. There is a strong societal and political push caused by the climate change issue and the strategies as well as measures mitigating the climate change. Traditional OEMs are in a huge pressure between societal requirements and customer needs. Therefore “low-emission and zero-emission vehicles,” “connected car,” and “autonomous driving” have been on the agenda of the automotive industry since several years. The drivers of these trends are partly newcomers in the automotive industry, like Tesla Motors, Google, or Apple. The growing role of disruptive innovations is in the focus of politics, business, and academia. The leading idea of this presentation is to show a conceptual framework, whereby open and discrete innovation approaches as well as cost of ownership approaches as key elements are applied to strategies and measures for innovations in the automotive industry.

Title: Future EU-based emission legislation and its impact on the gasoline ICE



World-wide regulation on emissions and fuel consumption for automotive vehicles is one of the major drivers for innovations in powertrain systems and vehicle design.

Legislative authorities are setting new emission standards all over the world, mainly based on European standards, for legal limits as well as for On-Board Diagnosis (OBD). Until now emission limits have to be fulfilled during a defined driving cycle, e.g. the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

In future new driving cycles and -procedures and on-road Real Driving Emissions (RDE) come into the picture. Megacities are taking extra measures to grant human health, city restrictions have already been introduced under certain conditions.

Automotive Manufacturers and their suppliers are spending high efforts to develop concepts and solutions to also meet the future standards. Technology is already available and the portfolio will be extended continuously.

Some of these solutions contribute to improvement in emission reduction, others in fuel consumption. Highly attractive solutions are beneficial for both requirements.

Title: Best efficiency and lowest emission SI powertrains


Development of mobile propulsion technology is driven by fuel consumption and exhaust emission reduction. New gasoline powertrains currently developed at FEV address both these major trends using combustion systems i.e.: extreme lean, water injection, natural gas to combine best efficiency with lowest emission levels. This presentation elaborates on the technology potentials and development methodologies used to handle challenges associated with spark ignition burn.
