The majority of heavy-duty engine manufacturers, namely Cummins, Detroit, International and Volvo Trucks, have rolled out over-the-air (OTA) engine reprogramming this year, giving you the power to update your 2017 model year and newer engines wherever your trucks are on the road (provided there is cellular coverage). What that means for you is that you will no longer have to schedule downtime to update engine software at a service location.
OTA reprogramming lets you send an update to your truck when it’s off duty to update specific parameters, which vary depending on engine manufacturer. Once the engine is updated, it will operate accordingly.
