University of Bath champions ‘powerful’ solution for reducing fleet emissionshttps://fleetservicessummit.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Lightfoot-and-the-university-of-bath.jpg 960 640 Stuart O'Brien Stuart O'Brien https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/81af0597d5c9bfe2231f1397b411745a?s=96&d=mm&r=g
Chris Brace, Professor of Automotive Propulsion and Director of the Institute of Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) at the University of Bath, has heralded Lightfoot’s revolutionary approach to improving driver performance as a game-changer for petrol and diesel fleet vehicles.
Commenting on the industry-leading in-cab driver coaching technology, Professor Brace said: “For millions of vehicles on the road, Lightfoot is one of the only ways to reduce the amount of NOx in the real world due to its ability to change driver behaviour in real time.”
Research undertaken by the Institute of Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems shows a direct correlation between Lightfoot’s real-time driver feedback and the amount of emissions that are emitted by vehicles with internal combustion engines. The studies make it clear that adopting a smoother, safer style of driving through Lightfoot’s guidance actively leads to a reduction in CO2 and NOx within fleets.
