Schaeffler US Symposium 2022

September 8, 2022 | Detroit

Energizing the Next Generation

Decarbonization is becoming the most important driver of change in mobility. To achieve the targets set, individual mobility must be placed on an ecologically sustainable footing. Above all, this requires sustainable concepts and innovative mobility solutions.

What role do electric and renewable energy sources play in this? What contribution do intelligent, networked and self-driving mobility solutions based on modular platforms make?

We presented our answers to you at the Schaeffler US Symposium, the most important customer event of the US Automotive Technologies Division at Schaeffler.

See some of the showcased highlights here:

Powertrains of the future
Efficient and electric

Only with a consistently well-planned electrification of the powertrain will it be possible to fully achieve the decarbonization targets. Whether purely electric, hybrid or hydrogen technology – the powertrain of the future must be innovative, efficient and powerful. Accordingly, we will be presenting our complete portfolio of state-of-the-art, customized solutions for electrified powertrains.

Experience the Schaeffler 4in1 e-axle – which combines the motor, gearbox, power electronics and thermal management into one innovative system – live! The high level of integration of the components, in combination with intelligent control and a highly engineered architecture, enable the optimum use of existing thermal energy. This remarkable system significantly increases electric range and comfort.

The 4in1-e-axle comes with an integrated cooling and refrigerant system for air conditioning the interior and the entire powertrain.

Innovative Chassis Systems
Intelligent, safe and absolutely reliable

Vehicles with automated driving functionalities must be reliable and safe. This places the highest demands on chassis components in terms of intelligence and safety. Take a seat and steer with Space Drive’s steer-by-wire technology that eliminates any mechanical connection between the steering wheel and axle – because the steering signals are transmitted electronically. Space Drive’s multiple redundancy ensures that Schaeffler’s technology is always on hand.

The intelligent Rear Wheel Steering System (iRWS) optimizes maneuverability and reduces a vehicle's turning circle – a great relief, especially in inner-city traffic! At higher speeds, the focus is on safety: thanks to steering in the same direction on the front and rear axles, controlled and agile lane changes become a reality – maximizing comfort for everyone on board.

Thanks to intelligent Rear Wheel Steering (iRWS), the turning circle of a vehicle is significantly reduced.

New mobility solutions
Toward a driverless future

Agile, autonomous, connected and electric – these are the requirements for mobility solutions in the city of the future. Our innovative Rolling Chassis – a scalable platform for new, driverless mobility solutions – makes this happen. Universally applicable, it offers entirely new forms of autonomous mobility: from passenger and logistics to service applications such as cleaning machines. The platform, designed for a variety of vehicle classes, demonstrates the wide range of Schaeffler technologies: different combinations of drive and steering systems can meet a wide variety of customer requirements in terms of maneuverability and performance.

Equipped with four iCorner Modules and Intelligent Vehicle Dynamics Control, the Rolling Chassis offers a steering angle of up to 90° that maximizes maneuverability. Entirely new vehicle architectures are now possible because the steering, driving, braking and wheel suspension fit inside the smallest-possible installation space.

With a steering angle of up to 90 °, the iCorner Modules guarantee maximum maneuverability.
