Understands your routes to save you fuel

I-SEE BY VOLVO TRUCKS

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.

How I-See can help you to save fuel

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.

Always supported, even when on the move

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.  

  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 at the crest
    When the downhill is approaching, I-See stops accelerating unnecessarily.
  4. Coasts before the downhill
    To save energy and minimize braking, I-See temporarily either disengages the powertrain or engine brakes just before a downhill slope.
  5. Controls downhill braking
    I-See knows where one slope ends and where the next begins, and applies the brakes as needed, for maximum efficiency.
  6. Prepares for the next hill climb
    If you’re about to go uphill again, I-See lets the truck coast, building speed and momentum for an effortless climb.
