International Truck will offer over-the-air (OTA) reprogramming of engine control modules (ECM) for International trucks powered by its N9, N10 and N13 proprietary engines. The company completed 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.
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 procedure can be performed at the customer’s facility over a secure Wi-Fi connection.
