Summary

 The Automotive Engineering Exposition 2014 was held on May 21 to 23, 2014, organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan (JSAE). This report introduces parts suppliers' exhibits other than the electric and hybrid vehicle components and technologies that were reported in the previous report.

 Improving fuel efficiency of gasoline-fueled vehicles was one of the main themes at the exposition. Many suppliers displayed ultra-small turbochargers, electric superchargers, exhaust heat recovery systems and high-ignitability spark plugs. Transmissions and electric power steering (EPSs) that are designed to meet new requirements were also exhibited.

 Other exhibits included parts and technologies which meet requirements of automakers' modular strategy. NSK displayed an EPS that can be shared globally among different models. Denso also exhibited the world-first automotive climate control unit for common use among different models.
