International Truck announced Friday the upcoming availability of Cummins Connected Software Updates and programmable trim parameters through Navistar's OnCommand Connection portal, enabled by Navistar's factory installed second-generation telematics device.
The two digital applications from Cummins, together with OnCommand Connection, will enable customers the capability to conduct over-the-air (OTA) approved engine calibrations and programmable parameters for Cummins X15 engines, Navistar says. All International LT Series and LoneStar models equipped with Navistar's second-generation factory-installed telematics device, which began production in mid-2019, will be able to take advantage of the new features on Cummins X15 engines, the company says.
Additionally, Navistar notes this integration builds upon International's OTA capability on the International A26 engine – making International the first and only OEM to use a single, factory-installed device to equip multiple engine models with remote programming.
"Navistar and Cummins have a longstanding relationship and we're proud to partner with them once again to deliver an OTA solution to maximize uptime, efficiency and productivity for our customers," says Brian Mulshine, director, customer experience, Navistar. "Combined with Intelligent Fleet Care, International Truck is continuing to deliver innovative connected vehicle solutions designed to positively impact our customers' bottom line."
Navistar says customers can quickly and securely keep their fleets running at peak performance by utilizing Navistar's OnCommand Connection portal to calibrate and optimize engine control modules remotely. Remote programming provides customers control on when and where to push out OTA updates to optimize vehicles based on application.
"Cummins is excited to partner with Navistar in delivering cutting-edge technologies that enhance how customers experience our products," adds Krista Toenjes, general manager - Navistar Accounts, Cummins. "Cummins Connected Software Updates and programmable trim parameters are great examples of how we are innovating for our customers to power their success."
