I-See. Now every road is worth remembering.

Save more fuel with I-See

Save even more fuel. Every time but the first.

Combine I-Shift and the GPS with an intelligent cruise control, and you get I-See. It’s a system that learns the topography of the road. Later on, it automatically uses its knowledge to save fuel – during a driving cycle when I-Cruise is engaged.

The I-See memory holds up to 5,000 km

3,500 memorable hills.

I-See doesn’t rely on maps. Since reality tends to be more accurate, I-See stores the actual slopes you’ve passed instead. The memory can hold up to 3,500 hills, an equivalent to around 5,000 kilometers. 

How it works

How I-See works

1. Before the uphills: taking off.
When I-See knows an uphill is coming, it lets the speed increase, approaching the upper speed limit, to gain momentum. The truck stays longer in a higher gear.

2. On the uphills: keeping from downshifting.
When climbing, I-See uses its stored knowledge to avoid unnecessary downshifts towards the top. You approach the crest smoothly without wasting fuel in a lower gear at the top of the climb..

3. On the crests: staying calm.
When approaching a downhill, I-See keeps the truck from accelerating unnecessarily.

4. Before the downhill: rolling on.
Just before the slope, the driveline temporarily disengages, allowing the truck to roll. This saves energy and minimises the need for braking.

5. On the downhills: braking in time.
I-See knows when the slope ends. Thus, when gaining speed downhill, it can apply the engine brake gently in time – rather than abruptly at the end – to prepare for the upcoming topography.

6. In the hollows: some extra momentum.
When a downhill is followed by an immediate uphill, I-See really comes to its own. It lets the truck roll gaining speed and momentum to climb uphill with less effort.
