Paper Title:
Next Decades’ Challenges for Terrestrial Vehicles’ Materials and Manufacturing to Reduce CO2 Emissions
  Abstract

The history of terrestrial transport systems on road and rail has always been influenced by material-related developments. These developments gave rise to various construction methods, taking into account the different requirements that transport systems had to fulfil and providing new approaches. The urgency of the CO2 problem will result in alternative power trains also establishing themselves on the market, in turn giving rise to new requirements and possibilities in the field of vehicle construction, over and above the established light weight design. Further development of materials is supported and supplemented by new material systems able to actively respond to the particular state of the system.
