"Making vehicles around the world Cleaner, Greener and More Efficient"
Giving real-time visual and audible feedback to influence driver behaviour.
The concept of Lightfoot is simple. Lightfoot delivers proven fuel saving of more than 10% and reduced accidents by improving and sustaining driver behaviour.
Lightfoot® has been selected as a Risk Management Partner by Allianz
Lightfoot® is working with Allianz clients to reduce driver fault accidents by improving driver behaviour in real time.
Ensuring safe and unaggressive driving at all times.
Lightfoot® sustains a level of driving that has seen fleet ‘at fault’ accidents reduce between 20% and 60%.
Reduce costs through our production motors.
Our key intellectual property enables us to reduce material and labour costs whilst also reducing build time. These are the key drivers as to why our motors are market leading for price, quality and performance.
Ashwoods Motors are Lightweight and Compact.
Using the latest technology and manufacturing processes we have optimised our motor design to give greater performance and economy whilst reducing size and weight.
Prevent maintenance costs and down time. Ashwoods electric motors are maintenance free and durable.
With over a decade of Automotive experience we know what is required from our products to ensure they are durable. Being IP65 rated and EMC compliant provides huge benefits to our customers.
Ashwoods provide high performance, low cost and maximum efficiency.
Our latest technology can provide great performance and save costs:
Already well-established in the fleet sector, Lightfoot® combines in-car, real-time, voice feedback with Formula 1 style engine data analytics. The results are over 20% fuel saving and up to 60% reduction in accidents.
It has been described as the gamification of driving as drivers want, rather than resent, its presence. In the same way that fitness technology now allows improvements in performance to be measured, shared and compared, Lightfoot® encourages better driving through positive, shareable, feedback.
In 2016 Lightfoot® will launch to private motorists and we believe this will change both the automotive and the insurance markets. Insurance companies will purchase Lightfoot® for young drivers as part of their insurance policy, experienced drivers will purchase Lightfoot® in order to reduce fuel bills and to demonstrate their driving ability to themselves, their insurers and their peers. At the end of 2015 we launch the Lightfoot® Dash Cam. It will be the smallest, sleekest, quickest install and lowest cost HD vehicle camera on the market.
Our electric propulsion technology can already be found in a number of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in more than 14 countries - from sports cars and go-karts to forklifts. They are 70% smaller, 70% lighter and up to 20% more efficient than the equivalent Brushed DC or Induction motors whilst remaining cost neutral or cheaper.
This market is growing rapidly. We supply to major manufacturers such as Tata Motors - initially low-volume, high-margin with technical support - then at high volume as vehicles move into production. Production runs typically run for five to ten years.
A £1.2 million grant from the UK Government (Regional Growth Fund) has been secured to help fund a new manufacturing facility - ensuring that as manufacturers move to the next generation electric motors and away from the old, the heavy and the inefficient, we will be ready to meet that demand.
