Freightliner-New-Cascadia-Efficiency-enhancements

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) announced that third party telematics service providers can now be integrated into the Detroit Connect platform.

The Detroit Connect platform, exclusive to the Freightliner new Cascadia, is the OEM’s suite of connected vehicle services.

According to DTNA, Detroit Connect was designed to allow the services of third party providers to be supported via the platform, providing customers the flexibility to work with the partner of their choice as well as eliminating the need to install additional hardware. Another added benefit is the integrated services will also be factory installed, which should help reduce the time it takes customers to in-service their vehicles.

“Integrating the services of third party providers onto our Detroit Connect platform is a real game-changer,” said Jason Krajewski, director of connectivity for Daimler Trucks North America. “It provides us the ability to expand our capabilities and push the bounds of the connected vehicle experience.”

Zonar will be the first telematics service provider integrated onto the Detroit Connect platform, the company announced.

Starting in April, Zonar offerings will be available on the Detroit Connect Platform, allowing customers to access Zonar’s telematics technologies, including Ground Traffic Control (GTC), Zonar’s web-based fleet management solution, without having to install additional hardware on the vehicle.

The Detroit Connect suite of connected vehicle services also includes Detroit Connect Virtual Technician, Analytics and Remote Updates, which now includes firmware over-the-air updates.
