Four percent improvement in fuel efficiency could mean incremental savings and improved bottom line for your fleet. Predictive cruise control technology is now available on International ProStar and LoneStar Class 8 on-highway trucks.And it’s better than the conventional predictive cruise technology – You don’t need to pre-drive the routes for the technology to learn the road grades, routes, etc. International ProStar and LoneStar predictive cruise technology uses pre-installed GPS maps and the latest commercial route data. This enables ALL drivers in your fleet, the ones that run different routes and those that drive the standard route to experience the improved fuel efficiency, right away.
You obtain greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, immediately.
International’s predictive cruise control uses topographical GPS data inputs to help maximize fuel economy. It monitors vehicle speed, engine load, weight and the road grade and modulates cruising speed to correspond to the topography of the road ahead. Predictive cruise control speed adjustments also helps minimize brake-usage. This helps you to further control your maintenance costs.
Bottom line for your business improves and the vehicle performance is optimized as a result!
