International Truck has announced the availability of over-the-air (OTA) reprogramming of engine control modules (ECMs) for all International Truck models powered by its N9, N10 and N13 proprietary engines as a no-charge offering. Additionally, OTA will be available for purchase for all company models, powered by proprietary engines, 2010 and newer through International Truck dealers.

“With this important step, over-the-air reprogramming is becoming a reality for truck operators,” says Bill Kozek, Navistar’s president of truck and parts. “This first-in-the-industry innovation will allow truck users to update their engine control modules with unprecedented ease and convenience, delivering improved uptime and other benefits over a safe, secure Wi-Fi connection.”

According to International Truck, OTA reprogramming of the truck’s ECM will enable the driver or fleet manager to utilize a mobile interface to initiate reprogramming to approved company calibrations. This procedure can be performed over a safe, secure Wi-Fi connection. The company continues to partner with data and technology companies to ensure the system offers the highest level of security.

“Over-the-air reprogramming revolutionizes the way trucks are serviced and lays the groundwork for a future of connected vehicle services and the trucking community as a whole,” added Kozek. “This two-way connected vehicle technology enables organizations to take communication a step further, allowing eligible users to pull the data from the truck, analyze the data and communicate back to the vehicle.”
