International Truck introduces over-the-air ECM reprogramming

International Truck has announced that it plans to offer over-the-air (OTA) reprogramming of engine control modules (ECM) for International trucks powered by its N9, N10 and N13 proprietary engines, becoming the first company to offer the service. The company has completed its initial testing in its International Truck test fleets and will finalize testing in customer fleets this fall. The official launch of two-way connected vehicle technology in new International models will come early next year.

“Over-the-air reprogramming in International trucks will revolutionize the way our customers’ trucks are serviced and maintained,” said Bill Kozek, Navistar’s president of truck and parts. “This is another important example of how our connected vehicle leadership is paving the way for future advancements that will drive improvements in vehicle uptime and real-world, bottom-line results for our customers.”

In the initial launch phase, International Truck’s OTA technology will be available on model year 2017 International trucks powered by proprietary N9, N10 and N13 engines. OTA reprogramming of the truck’s ECM will enable the driver or fleet manager to utilize a mobile interface to initiate reprogramming. This quick procedure can be performed at the customer’s facility over a secure Wi-Fi connection.

“OTA lays the groundwork for a pipeline of connected vehicle services such as partner engine and component calibration updates, body control module updates and future cellular capabilities,” said Mike Cerilli, the general manager of Navistar’s connected vehicle business. “These and future advancements will provide improved customer uptime, fuel efficiency and other benefits that will drive added value for customers.”
