New dimensions of automotive comfort and safety: 2nd International Conference Chassis Electrification from 11 - 13 May, 2011

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) The electrification of an increasing number of formerly mechanically and hydraulically powered chassis systems is currently one of the major challenges for chassis engineers. At IQPC’s 2nd International Conference Chassis Electrification from 11 - 13 May, 2011, in Frankfurt, Germany, automotive chassis professionals will come together to discuss the latest developments in chassis electrification.

The strong rise in the number of electrical chassis components not only adds a new dimension to driving comfort but also enables the integration of a range of indispensable safety features. Also, active chassis systems (braking/suspension) can help recuperate energy. For their integration, extra effort is necessary to avoid negative impact on driving feel.

Key issues to be discussed at the conference will be:

• Market trends: Find out which are the major factors driving market demand to assess the most promising technologies
• Energy management: Discuss how to best recuperate energy through advanced braking and suspension systems to prepare the chassis for electro mobility
• Power electronics: Hear about the latest in motors and power electronics for electric steering systems to meet the demands of the worldwide growing EPS markets
• Driving feel: Discuss ride comfort and handling challenges in active chassis systems to meet your customers’ expectations
• ADAS: Learn how to optimally couple chassis systems with driver assistance functions for maximal driver safety

Delegates can meet and discuss the latest trends in chassis electrification with major OEM’s, companies and institutes including:

• PSA Peugeot Citroën, France
• General Motors Company, USA
• BMW AG, Germany
• Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany
• Jaguar Land Rover, UK
• Strategy Analytics, UK
• University of Eindhoven, The Netherlands
• THINK, Norway
• TRW Automotive GmbH, Germany
• Continental Automotive GmbH, Germany
• Volvo Cars, Sweden
• Continental AG, Germany
