Are you concerned about the emissions your car is giving off? CleverDrive can help.
It’s a system that analyses your driving behaviour and tells you how to drive in a more eco-friendly and fuel-efficient manner.
It consists of three parts: an app, an adapter that’s essentially a fitness tracker for your car, and a web portal for data analysis. Fit the adapter to your car, drive as normal, and it’ll give you a full report on your habits and how you can drive in a more green way.
Not only will it benefit the environment, it should save you a few quid too, as you use less fuel.
Volkswagen could’ve done with it during its emissions tests.
It doubles as a location device, so you can find where you parked. And it tells you where fuel is cheap in your area.
It’s a good idea, but we can’t help but think it a little unnecessary. Surely basic guidelines like don’t accelerate hard and don’t go too fast will be enough to make your driving more eco-friendly. Do you really need readouts of every trip you take?
It’s just gone live on Kickstarter and is looking to raise €130,000. If successful, it’ll start shipping in April.
