WHAT DOES ECO-ROLL(ING) MEAN?

IN SHORT, ROLLING WITH THE TRUCK AT IDLE SPEED

More and more often,  Adaptive Cruise Control* and the Eco-Roll(ing) driving mode are used in long-distance trucks to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on downhill stretches.

 

*ACC - Adaptive Cruise Control, is a distance and speed control system - adapts the speed in the heavy commercial vehicle (e.g. long-distance truck) to the traffic flow and the gradient of the route.

How exactly does Eco-Roll(ing) work with the remote truck?

Eco-Roll is an autonomously acting programme that calculates when it is worthwhile to roll down longer gradients at idle speed. Or to use the engine brake when the fuel supply is switched off. The system makes the decision on the basis of GPS and topographical maps as well as at the trucker's request. Depending on which driving programme the driver chooses, the long-haul truck uses different strategies to either consume as little fuel as possible or to achieve optimal driving performance in favour of a high average speed.

Eco-Roll(ing) saves fuel and reduces emissions.

The truck then uses the energy that the battery has previously stored. Our Buffalo Bull batteries are then real CO2 and fuel savers!

Banner Batteries is part of the Eco-Roll technology, with the most powerful starter and on-board batteries in the Buffalo Bull EFB series for long-haul trucks.
