Volvo Trucks North America is expanding its connected vehicle services with new Remote Programming to increase truck uptime, reduce downtime costs, and improve vehicle efficiency, all through powertrain software and parameter updates.
Remote Programming, which leverages Volvo’s factory-installed telematics hardware, allows Volvo customers to perform over-the-air powertrain software and parameter updates anywhere in the U.S. and Canada where a cellular connection is available, and at the discretion of the vehicle’s decision maker.
“Volvo Trucks continues to invest heavily in connectivity solutions, and we’re proud to bring a true over-the-air solution to market,” said Conal Deedy, director of connected vehicle services for Volvo Trucks. “With Remote Programming, customers can quickly and easily perform updates to help improve the performance and efficiency of their vehicles.”
With Remote Programming trucks no longer need to be removed from service and routed to a repair facility for certain powertrain software and parameter updates. Improving the availability of trucks equates to more money. On average, each additional day of uptime equates to about $1,100 in additional revenue. Additionally, those who have historically not performed software updates due to cost or inconvenience can quickly and easily keep their trucks operating at optimal performance.
The service will be available in the third quarter of 2017 for all Model Year 2018 Volvo trucks equipped with Volvo’s Remote Diagnostics hardware.
With Remote Programming, Volvo Trucks customers can utilize Volvo’s factory-installed telematics hardware on Model Year 2018 trucks to download powertrain software and parameter updates over-the-air where cellular connections are available.
