ADEPT™ Technology Debuts at MATS

ADEPT ThumbnailADEPT is a suite of advanced electronic features for the ISX15 that interact with automated manual transmissions, continuously making minor adjustments to speed, power and transmission gear to take advantage of vehicle momentum, maximizing efficiency and increasing fuel economy.The first package includes SmartCoast and SmartTorque2 (ST2), and will have the capability of increasing fuel efficiency by up to 3 percent in today’s powertrains.

ST2 is the next generation of torque management technology from Cummins, introduced on the SmartAdvantage™ Powertrain. It senses both the selected gear and overall engine load, taking into account gross vehicle weight, aerodynamic drag and road grade. As these conditions vary, ST2 determines the exact amount of torque needed to maintain road speed and eliminate unnecessary downshifts. This ensures steadier engine operation, with more time spent in the “sweet spot” – the rpm range that achieves the best fuel economy.

With SmartCoast, the engine and transmission work in concert to improve efficiency on moderate downhills. It disengages the driveline, allowing the engine to return to idle. Reducing drag on the driveline conserves vehicle momentum and improves fuel economy.

Additional ADEPT features currently in development will allow your engine to take information from GPS systems, combine it with “look-ahead” terrain recognition software and dynamically make speed and torque adjustments in advance of changes in the road grade, enabling further fuel savings. Your customers will be able to easily upgrade ADEPT in the future to take advantage of new features.
