Do you know how to optimise speed and gear changes for the topography of your routes to save fuel? I-See knows, and its knowledge is based on data. It can help you substantially bring down fuel consumption from day one.
As you approach a hill, the truck downloads data from a high-resolution commercial topography map, accessible online. In a six-step process, the information is then used to maximise the truck’s kinetic energy and reduce your fuel consumption by up to 5%, compared to a truck without I-See. If the road isn’t featured on the map, or if the server connection should fail, the truck will fall back to the shared database solution.
I-See primarily uses data from a high-resolution commercial topography map that’s updated in the truck automatically when a new version is available. Secondarily it uses shared data – stored in the cloud. And if needed, the system uses locally stored data. This means you’ll always have access to topography data, have a smoother driving experience and know that the system is constantly being updated remotely.
I-See has the potential to save you even more fuel by adding the I-Torque function. I-Torque uses data from I-See to optimise the available engine torque output, for example when driving uphill. The driving is adjusted based on the route, both where you’re at and what is coming around the corner.
