Volvo Trucks increases uptime and efficiency with remote programming
Volvo Trucks North America is extending its popular and connected vehicle services by introducing the new Remote Programming to enhance uptime for trucks, minimize downtime costs, and build vehicle efficiency with the help powertrain software and parameter updates.
Remote Programming is a huge advantage to Volvo’s rapid development of software updates which in turn Influences Volvo’s factory-installed telematics hardware. The remote programming also gives room for their clients to perform smoothly over-the-air powertrain software and parameter upgrades anywhere in the United States and Canada, especially in places where a cellular connection is readily available. 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.
“Volvo Trucks persists in the remote programming by frequently investing heavily in connectivity solutions. The director of connected vehicle services for Volvo Trucks Cornel, Deedy, said: “of course, it is in our greatest pleasure to bring a unique over-the-air solution to market.” “With Remote Programming, customers can quickly and straightforwardly run updates to help enhance the performance and efficiency of their vehicles.”
In fact, Remote Programming is such that trucks no longer need to be taken out of service and routed to fix facility for specific powertrain software and parameter updates. Increasing the availability of vehicles is proportional to having more money available. Averagely, each extra day of uptime equals to roughly $1, and 100 in additional revenue. Supportively, Volvo customers who have historically not performed software updates before as a result of the cost of inconvenience can quickly and easily keep their vehicles running at optimal performance.

Taking a vehicle out of rotation to perform software and parameter updates can effectively decrease productivity. In that stead, we changed the way those updates are completed. Now with Remote Programming, a driver pulls over, connects to the Volvo Uptime Center, and the upgrade is done over the air.
