Sino-German Symposium on “Technology of Coordination between Energy Efficiency and Driving Safety in Electric Vehicles”

The Sino-German Symposium on “Technology of Coordination between Energy Efficiency and Driving Safety in Electric Vehicles” was successfully held in Shanghai from March 2-6, 2015. This symposium was funded by the Sino-German Center for Research Promotion and co-organized by Prof. Zhang Xi of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Prof. Jochen Wiedemann of University of Stuttgart.


Over thirty Chinese and German delegates from twelve different universities and institutions attended the symposium and presented keynote speeches. The participating universities and institutions from Germany were University of Stuttgart, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Landshut University of Applied Sciences, Institute of Vehicle Concepts at DLR and Research Institute of Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines Stuttgart. The participating universities on the Chinese side were Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Tongji University, Tsinghua University, Beijing Institute of Technology, Jilin University, Chongqing University and Hefei University of Technology.


The opening ceremony was hosted by the general chairman of the Chinese side, Prof. Zhang Xi, who extended his thanks to the Sino-German Center for Research Promotion for its significant support and sponsorship, and expressed a warm welcome to all the Chinese and German delegates. The chairman of the German side, Prof. Jochen Wiedemann, appreciated the excellent organizing work by the Chinese side and wished the symposium a complete success. During the meeting days, centering around the theme of “coordination between energy efficiency and driving safety in electric vehicles (EVs)”, the attendees had lively academic discussions and exchanges about current challenges and opportunities for electric vehicles, like the interdependency between energy efficiency and dynamic characteristics, the potential influence on efficiency and safety through optimization of components and configurations, and advanced control strategies considering both efficiency and safety. Some participating institutions have already reached specific cooperation intentions. The delegates agreed to establish the “Sino-German Academic Experts in E-Mobility (SGAEE)” alliance and hope to conduct substantial cooperative research under this ”umbrella”. The success of the symposium has positively influenced the potential cooperative research in relevant fields, and will promote the cooperation between the Chinese and German participating institutions on considerable aspects, e.g., joint projects related to EV efficiency and safety coordination technology, talent development, exchanges and visits, and the establishment of a scientific research base.


The Chinese and German participating delegates expressed their complete satisfaction concerning the successful, effected and well-organized symposium.
