Lightfoot is proud to be partnered with the University of Bath’s Institute of Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS).
Our revolutionary technology has not been developed through our fleet expertise alone – from the outset, we’ve worked with leading academics, scientists, and psychologists to develop technology that is proven to deliver extraordinary results.
The University of Bath’s team have been a huge influence on Lightfoot’s technology. We worked closely with them to test and validate our device, verifying its effectiveness as a measure to reduce emissions and fuel consumption and making use of their world-class capabilities to refine and develop Lightfoot further.
Chris Brace, Professor of Automotive Propulsion and Director of the IAAPS, endorses Lightfoot as a game-changing solution to address the growing problem of emissions in the real world. Research undertaken by the IAAPS team showed a direct correlation between Lightfoot’s in-cab visual alerts and reductions in NOx, with steadier driving as a result of the in-cab device leading to a fivefold reduction in oxides of nitrogen.
