SS-1: Mobility Services - Opportunities and Challenges
Modern Mobility Concepts are often associated with battery driven Electric Vehicles (EVs) - and there are still many questions unanswered with regard to electric vehicles. Until today, there is no right or wrong about BEVs, PHEVs, FCEVs or even combustion engine vehicles. These concepts serve different purposes, just like heavy duty servers, desktop PCs, Notebooks, Tablet PCs, Smart Phones and simple mobile phones are used in different cases. Yet, there is more to mobility than the designing of the vehicle. Future vehicles will depend on the surrounding infrastructure! Not only for charging. However, even for charging the vehicle or meeting the users’expectations, there are still many aspects unresolved. How can these challenges be turned into opportunities? Can vehicle manufacturers team up with electricity supply companies and public network operators to come up with profitable solutions?
On top of mobility solutions, new services will emerge! Car sharing is just the beginning of a commercial service. However, in a networked and mobile world, these services can also contribute to more safety (to reduce fatality rates), to optimize traffic flow for faster and smooth travelling, or even to manage traffic to make travelling more energy efficient and save resources.
The following topics shall be addressed in the panel discussion:
- Mobility Services
- Vehicle & Technology
- Charging & Infrastructure
- Energy Supply
- Regulations & State Programs
SS-2: Infrastructure Development for Electric Vehicles
Customer acceptance to EV is critical to the success of EV commercialization. Good charging experience such as safety, convenience and low cost level up the requirement to charging infrastructure, which requires huge cooperation and coordinated efforts between auto makers, utilities, suppliers and policy makers. GM has built up strong cooperation with various stakeholders in this area, and accumulated valuable experience in the world first EREV Volt promotion.
Joined by our partners, the session will share how to accelerate the charging
infrastructure development in a coordinated way.

SS-3: What are the Effective Solutions to the Harmonious Development of Low Carbon and Auto in China?
As China auto industry is facing challenges, together with the automotive industry around the world, such as energy shortage and environmental issues etc, the greatest technical challenge in front of China auto industry is to find a comprehensive and cost effective way, including solutions from governments, OEMs and customers, to significantly reduce automotive CO2 emission for current production and future sustainable development. FAW believes the situation for china auto industry is more severe than that for the rest of world, as China has bigger demand for oil and suffers from heavier environmental pollutions.
FAW will bring together a group of selected industry leaders, government officials, international NGOs, and university professors across China and the rest of the world during the special session. Regulations regarding CO2 emission & fuel consumption in China and around the world as well as their evolution will be discussed, and various engineering and application countermeasures will be presented during the session. The goal of this special session is to generate fresh ideas and direction or technology roadmap of reducing automotive CO2 emission via presentation and debate among the leaders. Solutions for harmonious development of low carbon and auto will include traditional internal combustion engine, vehicle electrification and traffic management. Hence this session will attract more participants from governments and engineering sectors.
Topics and Speakers:
Topic 1: Regulations\ Policies for low-carbon auto industry and transportation, including subsidies and future development, and comparisons among major countries
Topic 2: Current situation and technology trends for cars with less CO2 emission (or Abatement), especially technologies in research area to support future development
Topic 3: Auto product line with low CO2 emission is introduced in accordance with FAW Blue Way strategy, such as HEV, PHEV and EV.
By Dr. Li Jun, Vice Chief Engineer of FAW, President of FAW R&D Center
Topic 4: From perspective of automotive industry and economy in the world, car production volume in recent years, automotive CO2 emissions, current situations, future trends are analyzed.
Topic 5: low carbon auto and society, mobility mode in mega-cities, communities. Infrastructures, like charging facilities, electric generation, etc, are introduced.

SS-4: Technical Trends for ECU Development
The sub-session will mainly focus on technical trends and challenges in SW development of ECUs;
- What effects on ECU development process;
- How to meet the increasingly strict standards of the fuel economy & emission from the point of view powertrain system design?
- Related experiences based on Bosch products to meet this change
SS-5: X-Battery and Fuel Cell System for the Next Generation EV Applications
One of the approaches to relieve the climate change and fossil resource depletion problems is the application of vehicle electrification, which involves replacing ICE with efficient electric powered sources, such as battery or fuel cell system (FCS). Generally energy-efficient, cost-effective, durable and in some degree intelligent battery and FCS will be the key technical enablers for vehicle electrification. Many breakthroughs have been achieved in these areas. However, the battery, hereby called X-Battery and FCS, totally meeting the requirements of the next generation EVs are still under development with a lot of uncertainties. Aiming at gearing up for mass production of EV, continued researches, both fundamental and applied, are essential to help extensively reduce the propulsion cost and increase its durability and reliability.
Such kind of critical issues are expected to be discussed in this session, and the academic and industrial professionals from all over the world will be invited to explore and exchange new concepts and ideas.
SS-6: Strategic Technology Plan and International Cooperation on Future Electric Vehicles
Facing challenges in mass-producing electric-powered vehicles (EV) and their matching infrastructures, OEMs are investing heavily in key vehicle technologies, utility companies are working on efficient electricity delivery and management systems, governments are investigating sustainable electricity sources, and information technology companies are pursuing further enhancement on their telematic solutions. Besides those individual efforts, recently, various cooperation and partnerships among different parties have been established. International cooperation among different countries and regions has also been deployed, for instance, the U.S.-China Electric Vehicles Initiative launched by US President Barack Obama and China’s President Hu Jintao on November 17, 2009.
Despite Electrified vehicles, including EVs and their variants, have attracted attentions in the past decade, the EV’s penetration rate is still low due to high cost and long investment return time. The EV’s role in the future mobility has been recognized and the regulatory mandate on low emission seems pushing its development. Recently US government announced the aggressive CAFE standard of 54.5 mpg by 2025 and EV is an inevitable solution to achieve such a target. However, the latest analyses find out that EV deployment will increase the overall CO2 emission by countries heavily replying on coal-based power to supply electricity to EVs. Such a controversial indicates that the government’s policy and regulation become critical in the adaptation of EV. An EV based low-carbon and sustainable energy future demands close cooperation and coordination among various countries and regions.
This session provides a platform for policy makers and industry to share their perspective and strategy on EV. We will invite experts and strategists from industry, government agencies, universities and international think tanks to discuss issues on strategic technology plan and international cooperation. More specifically, we are interested in discussions on exploring joint standards development, joint vehicle demonstration programs, joint technical roadmap to identify research and development needs for EVs, promoting public awareness and engagement, and developing key EV technologies. Some successful experiences and stories developed under U.S.-China Electric Vehicles Initiative or the other joint efforts will be shared in this session.
SS-7: AUTOSAR's Rapid Development & Thought of China Auto Industry
This Session begins with an overview on features standardized by AUTOSAR in basis of software and development methodology, showing how the AUTOSAR achieves a complete set of features to satisfy the need for today’s and future vehicles. Then a detail of thought and development of the AUTOSAR standard in the most popular aspect of energy-saving and security will be showed, including existing implementations and future prospects. Finally some ideas and suggestions & concluding remarks about the understanding of the AUTOSAR will be put forward combining with the work carried out on the basis of experience in AUTOSAR.
