Your Lightfoot device is connected to your vehicle’s onboard computer, from which it’s able to collect and understand the raw engine data as you drive.
Lightfoot has been developed by automotive engineers and uses F1-style analytics to process the information it reads from your engine. This allows it to understand your driving style in a much more advanced way than standard telematics devices and black boxes.
For example, the system can detect your gear selection, revs, engine load, payload, whether your vehicle is going uphill or downhill, and even whether it’s towing. This enables it to provide much more relevant feedback on your driving than systems that simply rely on GPS or harsh driving metrics.
Although Lightfoot is connected to your vehicle, it cannot alter any of your vehicle settings – it simply reads the information in order to provide guidance on how to increase your driving efficiency at any given moment.
