Carnegie Mellon To Host Joint Symposium With Bosch To Discuss Future of Vehicle Power

PITTSBURGH—Kurt Liedtke, chairman, president and CEO of the Robert Bosch Corporation will lead a panel discussion about "The Future of the Automobile: An Industry Perspective on Alternative Fuels, Controls and Engines" from 10 a.m. to noon Friday, September 3, at Carnegie Mellon University.

Other panel members will include John Moulton, president of the Bosch's powertrain division, Besaliel Botelho, vice president of gasoline systems, Aleksander Kojic, flameless combustion project manager, and Bob Rivard, vice president of marketing.

Program participants will discuss a variety of environmental themes, including how fuel efficiency of the diesel engine is directly related to lower emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas associated with global warming. Other technologies include a new vehicle that can use traditional or ethanol-based fuel and advanced vehicle safety systems with driver assistance features.

The event, which is co-sponsored by the Carnegie Bosch Institute, the Green Design Institute and the Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research, also will highlight the close working relationship Carnegie Mellon researchers have with Bosch.

WHEN: Sept. 3, 10 a.m. to noon

WHERE: Posner Hall, Mellon Auditorium, Carnegie Mellon University
