Johan Axelsson works as Software Product Owner for gear selection and predictive powertrain control. He has worked with the I-Shift software at Volvo since 2009, mainly focusing on I-See and fuel saving functionality. During that time, he has been involved in the development of three generations of the I-Shift gearbox and all of the I-See development. His mission is to constantly develop the functionality to give the customers the best possible fuel consumption and driving performance.
Predictive systems have evolved considerably in recent years, primarily because map data can now be stored in the cloud, greatly improving coverage and accuracy. The result? Reduced fuel consumption and a smoother ride. Here, I’ll explain why.
