Mr. Yano’s presentation, produced in collaboration with DENSO’s European engineering research partner FEV, drew from DENSO’s extensive automotive R&D credentials and automotive expertise. The presentation addressed the challenge for hybrid powertrain systems to enhance comfort with minimal fuel consumption. The presentation concluded that predictive Hybrid Mode operation and predictive cabin thermal management would deliver higher comfort whilst reducing CO2 emissions.

A shared vision for a cleaner automotive society

Mr. Yano commented: “The International Vienna Motor Symposium is one of the largest conferences of its kind, and shares a similar goal as DENSO - to create a cleaner automotive society.

“DENSO’s research and development teams continue to strive toward a better automotive landscape, and these conferences provide the perfect opportunity for DENSO to contribute to the wider industry and work toward this common goal.”

The annual conference took place from 28-29th April and welcomed nearly 1,200 visitors from across the automotive world to discuss a wide range of issues within the industry and the developments to combat them. The Symposium tackled a variety of topics including future legislation, drivetrain electrification, hybrid technology, CO2 reduction and exhaust emissions.
