Navistar to integrate Platform Science’s Virtual Vehicle telematics platform
Navistar has announced it is integrating Platform Science’s Virtual Vehicle telematics platform, allowing fleets to access telematics, software, real-time vehicle data, and third-party applications directly from their vehicles. It’s hard-coded in, for faster response times rather than sending data to the cloud and back, the companies said during an announcement at the Truckload Carriers Association convention.
Deployments will begin in 2023. Virtual Vehicle allows fleets to access software and apps without requiring additional hardware.
For Navistar, the addition of Virtual Vehicle allows it to expand its connected services platform OnCommand Connection, offering more digital options.
Some of the benefits the companies tout include: productivity due to the factory installation of the hardware; flexibility, allowing fleets to customize their software based on company needs; accessibility, providing data constantly even when fleets are offline; and cost savings due to usage-based billing.
