Unlike many other telematics companies, Lightfoot hails from a background in automotive engineering. With extensive knowledge of petrol, diesel, and electric vehicles, our expert team has invaluable insight into the mechanics of commercial cars and vans, from the engine to the drivetrain. This has allowed us to build a truly unique solution for fleets that combines live engine data with a complex algorithm designed with academics and mechanical engineers from the University of Bath and Lightfoot’s own Dr. John Poxon, giving the Lightfoot device unrivalled accuracy in understanding how each connected vehicle is being handled.
Meanwhile, our software engineers are responsible for developing and maintaining the Lightfoot platform, from the backend system through to the interactive fleet management portal and our one-of-a-kind driver app. Led by Dr. Calum Roke, they’re consistently innovating our systems with new features, tools, and applications to deliver the best possible solution for our customers and meet the ever-changing needs of the fleet industry.
By creating and progressing our own hardware and software solutions, we are able to offer a true end-to-end system capable of delivering far greater value than any off-the-shelf solution. Our team has full control over the parts we use, the features we offer, and the quality we provide to our clients, ensuring we continue to supply fleets with a secure fleet management system with truly unique functionality.
