Unwanted pedal movement wastes fuel

Even the best drivers change power several times a second

As a vehicle travels forward, it also moves slightly up and down due to variations in the roadway surface. This motion in turn causes the driver’s foot to change pressure on the accelerator pedal, leading to slight changes in power.

For example, a driver targeting 35 MPH may unintentionally change requested speed between 34, 31, 37 and 32 MPH in less than a second.

Individually, these deviations occur so quickly that they usually pass unnoticed by the driver. Yet together they significantly reduce a vehicle's real-world mileage from its theoretical peak.

Introducing SmartPedal

Improves mileage by electronically correcting for unwanted changes in power

SmartPedal utilizes a multi-patented technology—pedal signal correction—to improve the mileage and range of vehicles incorporating electronic accelerator pedals, including most electric, hybrid, and gas-powered cars and trucks.

To power these corrections, SmartPedal contains a powerful 32-bit CPU. Built-in sensors monitor vehicle motion. A second set of sensors tracks driver and pedal interaction by electronically monitoring the position of the accelerator pedal.

Utilizing probability theory, SmartPedal analyzes this sensor data dozens of times a second to determine the influence of the roadway on the driver's use of the pedal. SmartPedal then electronically corrects the pedal signal to eliminate unwanted changes in power.

The entire process is designed to operate transparently to the driver and improves mileage without compromising handling or safety.

Installs Clean

SmartPedal can't be installed backwards.

If any of the three steps are skipped, the vehicle is still safe—it will not accelerate until the pedal is properly connected.

Made in USA

Complies with all federal and industry safety standards

Safety begins with encasing our electronics in high-strength, flame-resistant materials that meet or exceed the safety standards of the automotive industry and the U.S. government. Our housings are also water and dust resistant, just in case your vehicles operate in harsh environments.

Internally, a software-based agent double-checks every correction for accuracy and continually calibrates output throughout the life of the device. As a further safety measure, SmartPedal contains a passthrough that under certain conditions can stop corrections and transmit the uncorrected pedal signal to the engine.

We perform all engineering and manufacturing in the USA and source authentic parts and components only through trusted suppliers. Our goal is to maintain continuous oversight over the entire manufacturing process in order to deliver a high-quality end product to every customer.
