Introduced in March, FuelSense® 2.0 featuring DynActive™ Shifting delivers up to 6 percent additional savings beyond the company’s original software
BRISBANE, Australia – Allison Transmission will present FuelSense® 2.0 with DynActive™ Shifting, its latest fuel-saving software, at the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Center, May 25-28. The leading supplier of automatic transmissions for the Australian commercial-vehicle market will be in Hall 4 at Stand 92.
FuelSense® 2.0 delivers up to 6 percent additional fuel savings beyond the company’s original FuelSense software. Available in three packages, FuelSense 2.0 uses a learning algorithm that allows fleets to optimize fuel economy and performance to their specific needs.
Allison’s FuelSense packages, first launched in March 2014, enabled significant fuel economy improvements. Through a set of proprietary software enhancements, the new FuelSense 2.0 technology uses DynActive Shifting for an infinitely variable combination of shift points.
More than 3 million test miles have been achieved with customer fleets representing a variety of duty-cycles. FuelSense 2.0 provides maximum value for applications with heavy start-stop needs, and is ideally suited for city bus, school bus, refuse, construction and distribution.
The available packages are FuelSense 2.0, FuelSense 2.0 Plus and FuelSense 2.0 Max. All three packages include DynActive Shifting. FuelSense 2.0 Plus and Max include improved Neutral at Stop. FuelSense 2.0 Max includes enhanced Acceleration Rate Management.
In addition to FuelSense 2.0, Allison will feature a wide range of its automatic transmissions at the Brisbane Truck Show. Attendees will also find a wide variety of Allison-equipped vehicles on display from Daimler, Freightliner, Fuso, Hino, Isuzu, Iveco, UD Trucks and Western Star.
Allison Automatics use a torque converter for Continuous Power Technology™ to smoothly multiply engine torque, delivering more power to the wheels. By multiplying engine power, drivers get increased performance, faster acceleration and greater operational flexibility. Manual and automated manual transmissions (AMTs) interrupt power with every shift. Allison transmissions maintain power to the wheels at all times for more productivity, better fuel economy and greater driver comfort and safety. Allison transmissions are globally recognized for their quality and reliability, resulting in a greater overall economic value for customers.
