International expands over-the-air A26 engine update capabilities


After June, all new International LT Series and RH Series models equipped with an International A26 engine will include the capability to make remote cellular over-the-air updates to authorized engine calibrations and programmable parameters. This announcement builds on International’s introduction of over-the-air calibration using a WiFi signal.

Remote engine calibration using cellular will allow customers to keep their engines operating with peak performance and fuel efficiency without returning to home base or stopping at a dealer location for an update, Navistar explained. In addition, remote programming of fleets’ engine parameters enables customers to control factors that deliver performance, safety and efficiency.

“With our new OTA programming capabilities, keeping your fleet at peak performance and efficiency has never been easier,” said Michael Cancelliere, Navistar’s president of truck. “Using these new OTA tools will help our customers achieve greater uptime and lower their Total Cost of Ownership.”

“More actions that benefit our customers will be forthcoming,” Cancelliere said. “Company innovations including OnCommand Connection remote diagnostics, Fault Code Action Plans and the Diamond Edgedealer certification program have already assured that nearly 80% of vehicles powered by our International A26 engine are back on the road in the first 24 hours, and our goal is to take that number even higher.”
