Save up to 5% fuel and reduce CO2
The truck knows the gradients of the road ahead, so it tells the engine and the I-Shift transmission how to maximise the truck’s kinetic energy, to save fuel and reduce CO2
1. Builds momentum
I-See knows a hill is ahead, so the truck accelerates and remains in a higher gear for longer.
2. Avoids downshifting
By preventing needless gear changes, I-See makes your uphill climb smoother and more fuel-efficient.
3. Curbs speed on the crest
When the downhill is approaching, I-See stops the truck from accelerating unnecessarily.
4. Coasts before the downhill
To save energy and minimise braking, I-See temporarily disengages the driveline just before a downhill slope.
5. Controls downhill braking
I-See knows where one slope ends and the next begins, and applies the brakes as needed, for maximum efficiency.
6. Prepares for the next climb
If you’re about to go uphill again, I-See lets the truck coast, building speed and momentum for an effortless climb.
As you drive, I-See uses GPRS/3G technology to download data about the hills in the direction you’re travelling. If you approach a hill that’s not in the database (or in I-See’s working memory), I-See records information about the hill, then uploads the data so it’s available for the next I-See user. This collective knowledge makes it possible to maximise fuel savings – even on a new run.
