Daimler Truck AG recently established the Connectivity Services Group (CSG), a global division that will develop the next generation of vehicle connectivity solutions and digital services for customers.
CSG will be based at Daimler Trucks North America headquarters in Portland and be led by Sanjiv Khurana, currently head of digital vehicle solutions at DTNA. Khurana will oversee the international teams to define the next set of Daimler’s connectivity solutions and set up the framework for software development and product management.
“Connectivity has already transformed trucking and logistics, but Daimler is committed to pushing the technology even further,” Khurana continued. “Our team will drive in-house innovation and deployment faster than ever, seek out and build upon industry relationships and turn the knowledge gained from data into actionable insights to directly benefit vehicle operations, fleet productivity and the driver experience.”
The group will focus on uniting the company’s end-to-end digital architecture, including in-vehicle software, cloud platforms, and digital solutions. Partnerships with in-vehicle and internet-of-things technology providers will also fall under the CSG scope at Daimler Trucks, including the company’s work with Platform Science.
