Integrated stop-start system
Company: Denso
What: Engine stops during deceleration
Innovation: The typical stop-start system stops the engine only when the vehicle stops. Denso’s system also stops the engine when a vehicle is decelerating. In addition, the battery supplies regenerative power to some components, including the navigation and audio systems. This reduces the load on the alternator and engine, saving more fuel.
