Derive VQ – A Solution for Today to Save Tomorrow
At Derive Systems, we take pride in the work that we do to protect our planet. Below are some facts about the effectiveness of Derive’s evolutionary optimization solutions:
- With Derive, you can save up to 12 gallons per month and reduce almost 3,000 lbs of CO2 annually.
- An estimated 6.2 million enterprise and government fleet vehicles exist in the U.S. today that have traditional combustion engines.
- If just 15% of all vehicles were calibrated using Derive VQ Efficiency, the CO2 reduction would be the equivalent of taking almost 74,400 vehicles off the road.
- Therefore, removing 74,400 vehicles from the road over a 9-year term would eliminate 1.2 million metric tons of CO2 annually.
Using efficient and dynamic calibration tools like Derive Systems is one step to making an impactful difference in the world today.
What makes VQ-Efficiency unique? Calibration.
Step 1: We determine the standards of an internal combustion engine to ascertain the proper correction factors to optimize.
Step 2: We then use ECU Remapping (“calibration”) as a simple, safe, and highly effective method of electronic engine tuning.
Every calibration is Clean Air compliant and designed to optimize the sustainability of the standard ICE. It allows fleet managers to control vehicle speed or idle times to increase the engine’s efficiency, thus driving safety and fuel savings.
