International Truck announced that fleets will soon have the capability to conduct over-the-air engine calibrations and programmable parameters for Cummins X15 engines.
All International LT Series and LoneStar models equipped with Navistar's second-generation factory-installed telematics device, which began production in mid-2019, will be able to take advantage of the new features on Cummins X15 engines.
International will make available Cummins Connected Software Updates and programmable trim parameters through Navistar's OnCommand Connection portal. The two digital applications from Cummins, together with OnCommand Connection, will allow fleets the capability to conduct over-the-air approved engine calibrations and programmable parameters.
This integration builds upon International's OTA capability on the International A26 engine – making International the first OEM to use a single, factory-installed device to equip multiple engine models with remote programming, International officials said in a press release.
Fleets can utilize the OnCommand Connection portal to calibrate and optimize engine control modules remotely. Remote programming provides customers control on when and where to push out OTA updates to optimize vehicles based on application, company officials said.
