Noregon-JPRO-1-Web

Noregon announced updates to its in-shop diagnostic and repair tool, JPRO Professional, and its real-time fleet asset management solution, TripVision. The company also established an education program. 

Noregon released information about an enhanced version of TripVision called TripVision Uptime, which is available directly from Noregon as a standalone service.

For its standalone offering, Noregon created a hardware device called ND2 to be installed on the vehicle, which does not interfere with telematics hardware. TripVision Uptime presents many new capabilities to maximize vehicle uptime in a fleet, such as the ability to remotely clear fault codes, modify parameters such as max road and cruise speeds or idle shutdown times, and launch bi-directional tests including forced DPF regens and ACM resets. Additionally, the company announced a new feature for TripVision called Actionable Alerts that pinpoints faults that can be fixed by the driver before escalating into a serious issue. The enhanced release retains TripVision’s previously available features such as health and safety scores, effect on vehicle descriptions, and configurable text and email alerts.

“These capabilities, such as the ability to remotely clear fault codes, edit parameter settings, or launch bi-directional controls will present significant benefits for fleets by reducing their reliance on shop visits or mobile repair calls,” said Tim Bigwood, Noregon’s chief executive officer.

Noregon also added new diagnostic exercises to JPRO, to better illustrate JPRO’s capabilities and present users with common issues seen on heavy-duty vehicles. The Virtual Truck is built into JPRO and allows users to simulate the tool’s advanced capabilities without connecting to a truck, making it an ideal solution for product evaluation or for students and technicians aiming to improve their skills away from the classroom or shop environment.

In conjunction with product details, Noregon revealed plans of an education initiative to promote a career as a technician and improve classroom tools. The education program is aimed at diesel college programs to ensure students have access to Noregon’s in the classroom, at home, and after graduation. The program will equip colleges and diesel programs with JPRO and NextStep while giving students licenses for JPRO’s Virtual Truck to enhance their skills while away from the classroom, the company said.
