Daimler Predictive Powertrain Control systems for Omnibuses

 Energy savings can be reached not only through training programmes targeting professional drivers, but the industry research is developing more advanced and optimized driver assistance support systems which hold the potential to support drivers in reducing fuel consumption.
With their recently launched Predictive Powertrain Control for Omnibuses, Daimler Buses takes a step further towards more efficient bus drives. The environmentally-conscious professional driver knows, for example, that they should take their foot from the throttle when approaching a road hump. This saves a lot of fuel, costs less time and is the basic principle of the world’s first anticipatory cruise-control for long-distance coaches with direct transmission control.
The industry market latest products is a topic constantly followed by the ACTUATE project team, who is discussing and testing driving assistance systems to support eco-driving of clean vehicles.
