Schaeffler Symposium Japan 2022
November 30 – December 01, 2022 | PACIFICO Yokohama | Japan

Energizing the Next Generation

Dates: November 30 (Wed) – December 01(Thu), 2022
Venue: PACIFICO Yokohama, North

Decarbonization is becoming the most important driver of change in mobility. However, to achieve the targets set, individual mobility must be placed on an ecologically sustainable footing. Above all, this requires sustainable concepts and innovative mobility solutions.

What role do electric and renewable energy sources play in this? What contribution do intelligent, networked and self-driving mobility solutions based on modular platforms make?

We look forward to not only presenting our answers to these questions but also our innovative solutions at the Schaeffler Symposium – the most important customer event of the Schaeffler Automotive Technologies Division.

The Symposium awaited you with a broad array of exciting topics


The Schaeffler Symposium stands for innovation, full customer focus and joint exchange. In an exclusive setting, we not only presented our latest intelligent components, systems and services, but also allowed you to actively experience them.


Powertrains of the future
Efficient and electric

Only with consistently well-thought-out electrification of the powertrain will it be possible to fully achieve decarbonization targets. Whether purely electric, hybrid or hydrogen technology – the powertrain of the future must be innovative, efficient and powerful. We will present our complete portfolio of the latest customized solutions for the electrified powertrain.

Experience the Schaeffler 4in1-e-axle live: It combines the components motor, gearbox, power electronics and thermal management into an innovative overall system. The high level of integration of the components, in combination with intelligent control and a highly engineered architecture, enables the optimum use of existing thermal energy. The system thus stands for both an increase in electric range and an increase in comfort.

The 4in1-e-axle is one of the many solutions on display at Schaeffler Symposium Japan 2022 for all types of electrified powertrain.

The 4in1-e-axle comes with an integrated cooling and refrigerant system for air conditioning the interior and the entire powertrain.

Innovative Chassis Systems
Intelligent, safe and consistently available

Vehicles with automated driving functionalities must be reliable and safe. This places the highest demands on intelligence, safety and availability on chassis components. With the Chassis Demonstrator, we show you how intelligent chassis systems and innovative steering solutions of the future will affect the driving experience. Take a seat and steer with Space Drive “by-wire”, i.e. without any mechanical connection between steering wheel and axle – the steering signals are transmitted electronically. Constant availability is the top priority, safeguarded by Space Drive’s multiple redundancy.

The intelligent Rear Wheel Steering System (iRWS) optimizes maneuverability and reduces a vehicle’s turning circle – a great relief, especially in inner-city traffic! At higher speeds, the focus is on safety: thanks to steering in the same direction on the front and rear axles, controlled and agile lane changes become a reality – with maximum driving comfort for the passengers.

Witness the developments of our Chassis Mechatronics product portfolio.

Thanks to intelligent Rear Wheel Steering (iRWS), the turning circle of a vehicle is significantly reduced.

New mobility solutions
Driverless towards the future

Agile, autonomous, connected and electric – these are the requirements for mobility solutions for the city of the future. Our innovative Rolling Chassis – a scalable platform for new, driverless mobility solutions – makes this happen

Shown for the first time in Japan, the Rolling Chassis is universally applicable and offers entirely new forms of autonomous mobility: from passenger and logistics to service applications such as cleaning machines. Furthermore, the platform, designed for a wide variety of vehicle classes, demonstrates the wide range of Schaeffler technologies: different combinations of drive and steering systems can meet various customer requirements in terms of manoeuvrability and performance.

Equipped with four iCorner Modules and Intelligent Vehicle Dynamics Control, the Rolling Chassis impresses a steering angle of up to 90 ° and thus maximum maneuvrability. Steering, driving, braking and wheel suspension in the smallest possible installation space, thus enabling entirely new vehicle architectures.

With a steering angle of up to 90 °, the iCorner Modules guarantee maximum maneuverability.

A focus on sustainability

Sustainability forms an integral part of Schaeffler's corporate strategy. We also always keep sustainability in mind in our event management.

Schaeffler’s sustainable approach means that we must question many aspects and take all facets of the event into consideration when organizing the Symposium. Our goal is to make the Symposium 2022 noticeably more climate-friendly.

This includes, for example, our additional group shuttles, the saving of resources, and the regional and seasonal catering menus. After the event, we will also be evaluating and compensating all the emissions, which could not be prevented or completely reduced.
