VIDEO: Volvo Trucks Expands Remote Programming Service

October 17, 2018
Remote programming of software takes less than 20 minutes

Remote programming is now available for Volvo trucks in the U.S. and Canada with GHG 2017 Volvo engines equipped with the company’s factory-installed connectivity hardware. The service allows for software and parameter updates wherever a cellular connection is available.

Owners of eligible Volvo trucks can register their trucks for Remote Programming through a simple registration portal.

“The connectivity service makes a difference to our customers and their operations,” said Ashraf Makki, Volvo Trucks North America product marketing manager. “We’ve received strong acceptance of the technology and update process from professional drivers and fleet managers alike, who have embraced Remote Programming as a faster, more efficient way to help ensure trucks are updated with the latest software to support peak performance and maximum uptime.

“Updates are performed during a driver’s lunch break or when the truck is back at a depot, providing significant benefits as opposed to taking far more time for a planned stop at a service center or taking a computer out to the truck,” Makki said.

Remote programming of software takes less than 20 minutes, providing significant time savings when compared with taking trucks out of service to perform needed updates. To date, Remote Programming has already added thousands of days of uptime while increasing truck performance, Volvo said. In addition to software updates, Remote Programming can deliver multiple parameter packages to allow owners to change between operating modes for optimal fuel efficiency and preferred operating configurations.
