WARRENDALE, Pa. -- SAE International will host a comprehensive seminar on automatic transmissions for truck and buses on June 12-13 at the Suzhou Marriott Hotel in Suzhou City, China.

Sponsored by Lubrizol, "Automatic Transmissions for Trucks and Bus Rapid Transit Vehicles: Performance Advantages and Challenges," is an industry seminar designed specifically for truck and bus rapid transit OEM/Tier supplier engineers in China.

During this two-day educational course, a team of industry experts will provide vehicle trend data and market drivers, detailed technical presentations on heavy-duty automatic transmission functionality and design considerations. In addition, a real-world case study is used to benchmark the performance of several automatic transmission fluids (ATFs) to determine if one ATF could be optimized for a specific region and severe application. The course includes industry roundtable discussions focusing on trends and future directions.

An added feature of this class is a collection of technology displays to provide further AT understanding and user-experience data. In addition, the registration fee includes lunch and refreshments both days along with a special networking dinner the evening of day one, designed to provide further opportunity to interact with transmission experts and industry colleagues.

Leaning objectives for the course include:

-- Understand vehicle trend data and market drivers for both heavy-duty trucks and Bus Rapid Transit Systems -- Identify the benefits of heavy duty ATs for these applications -- Describe the major components within an AT and their functions/benefits; in particular, hardware, electronic controls, lubricants and additives -- Describe the implications of each component to the success of the AT design and usage -- Discuss emerging trends in AT designs as they relate to future OEM strategies -- Understand Lubrizol's findings of a Field Experience with Heavy-Duty Automatic Transmissions in Urban Buses.
