AIS, Anti Idle System
Status; in development:
motor vehicles waste fuel and money, prolonged idling has a detrimental
effect on the internal combustion engine. Transport operators that eliminate
unnecessary idling can produce significant savings in fuel costs for their
fleet of vehicles.
AIS engine stop-start is designed to automatically shut down the vehicles
engine after the selected
time scale has been set, depending on which state or country you are in,
this can be between
3 minuets to 5 minuets.
the accelerator engages the hydraulic starter motor and the engine starts
The anti-idling system can be used as an ad-on option to our hybrid system to further reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
vehicles fitted with an air brake system will not move off, if there is
insufficient air pressure).
The vehicles engine will shutdown at a predetermined time
(eg 3 to 5 min.)
Engine will restart automatically by depressing the
throttle pedal to the floor, with the transmission in neutral and foot
of the clutch.

has classified diesel exhaust as a probable human carcinogen. Air pollution
from diesel vehicles has health implications for everyone, but children are
more susceptible to this pollution because their respiratory systems are not
fully developed. Diesel exhaust typically contains particulate matter (PM),
hydrocarbons (HC), and carbon monoxide (CO). Exposure to fine particles in
school bus exhaust can result in increased frequency of childhood diseases,
such as asthma.
school yards, idling school buses release emissions directly into the
breathing zone of children. As children line up to board an idling bus, they
are exposed to the vehicles emissions at the most concentrated levels.
Limiting the amount of idling time not only reduces exposure of school
students to the harmful pollutants in diesel exhaust, but it also improves
air quality. Link Below.
