As driver assistance systems grow in sophistication, they make it easier for even poor drivers to boost fuel economy, according to Fredrik Callenryd, senior business analyst with Scania fleet management. In this podcast with TU’s Jan Stojaspal, Callenryd discusses Scania's approach to driver assistance solutions and Scania Active Prediction, an advanced cruise control system that can save up to three percent of fuel by minor speed adjustments designed to leverage the truck’s built-in energy during hill-taking.
