International Truck just took a bite out of downtime.
The company announced Monday that over-the-air (OTA) reprogramming of engine control modules (ECM) for all International Truck models powered by its N9, N10 and N13 proprietary engines is now available as a no charge offering.
Additionally, International says OTA reprogramming will be available for purchase for all International truck models, powered by proprietary engines, 2010 and newer through International Truck dealers.
“With this important step, over-the-air reprogramming is becoming a reality for truck operators,” says Bill Kozek, Navistar president, Truck and Parts. “This first-in-the-industry innovation will allow truck users to update their engine control modules with unprecedented ease and convenience, delivering improved uptime and other benefits over a safe, secure Wi-Fi connection.”
International says OTA reprogramming of truck ECMs will enable vehicle owners to use a mobile interface to initiate reprogramming to approved International calibrations. This quick procedure can be performed at the customer’s facility over a safe, secure Wi-Fi connection. And the company says it continues to partner with industry-leading data and technology companies to ensure the system offers the highest level of security.
“Over-the-air reprogramming revolutionizes the way trucks are serviced and lays the groundwork for a future of connected vehicle services and the trucking community as a whole,” says Kozek. “This two-way connected vehicle technology enables organizations to take communication a step further, allowing eligible users to pull the data from the truck, analyze the data, and communicate back to the vehicle.”
