Hino Trucks announces third-generation connected vehicle solution

Hino Trucks has introduced Hino Edge, the company’s new third generation connected vehicle solution that aims to connect the fleet customer, dealer network, telematics service providers (TSPs) and Hino Ultimate Support Center. This solution replaces Hino Insight and is included on qualifying 2022 model year and newer Hino conventional trucks as standard equipment.

Hino customers will receive five years of complimentary access to Edge’s fleet management web portal and mobile hub app named Hino Ultimate. The solution delivers vehicle location tracking, a live fleet performance dashboard, vehicle health monitoring including real-time fault notifications with severity ratings, simplified service experience with case communication, and the flexibility to add on a third-party advanced telematics service from one of Hino Trucks preferred partners, the OEM noted.

Hino Trucks has partnered with TSPs to integrate business systems with Edge. Customers may elect to have vehicle data directly sent to the TSP of their choice, saving the cost of purchasing telematics equipment and increasing the wealth of vehicle information accessible by TSPs, enabling higher value reporting. Current partners include Geotab, MiX Telematics and Samsara, with more TSPs being added. Additionally, Hino has partnered with T-Mobile to make use of its 5G network.
