EuroBrake 2019 Strategy Panel

Wednesday 23 May 2019, 10:40 -  12:20

Chair: Prof. Dr.-Ing Georg Ostermeyer, TU Braunschweig

Chair: Jan Münchhoff, AUDI AG 

“How will the brake industry solve the challenge of brake emissions - by changing the brake design, the brake operation, or both?”

 Brake emissions have been the subject of intensive discussion in various circles for years, and more and more specialists are taking part in the discussion and looking for ways to optimize the braking system. But the world around us is changing evolutionary and even revolutionary.

On the one hand, new materials and highly automated subsystems for the brake are being developed evolutionarily. Scientists understand the chains of action and their influences better and better. 

On the other hand, highly automated vehicles are no longer science fiction, fully electrified vehicle concepts are conquering more and more market shares, and the use of brakes is thus changing in a revolutionary way.

  • How concrete and determining are all these effects on the challenge of brake emissions?
  • What opportunities and risks are to be expected in brake development over the next few years?
  • Where will the development and research of science and industry be tomorrow?

We will discuss these issues in a high-caliber panel of top experts and visionaries, making strategic issues transparent for all of us and support follow-up in and after the 2019 EuroBrake.
