“We congratulate Autocar on becoming the first OEM to integrate our Blue iQ technology into its Always Up display, which means drivers can now view a vehicle’s information all in one dashboard,” said Ian MacDonald, Hexagon Agility’s VP of North American sales. “Like Autocar, we are committed to improving safety by reducing distractions for drivers, while enabling a streamlined solution for fleets to transition from diesel to clean natural gas.”
Hexagon Agility’s Blue iQ smart gauge allows RNG/CNG trucks to operate on a level playing field with diesel trucks by displaying real-time information about the truck’s fuel management system, which calculates the distance to empty, provides ongoing accurate fuel readings and instant fuel economy, and tracks trip data. It is currently available with most Hexagon Agility fuel systems, according to the company's news release.
"We are excited to offer our CNG customers a new way to monitor the performance of their Autocar trucks with an integrated solution that helps operators better understand their CNG fuel system," said, Andrew Taitz, chairman of Autocar, LLC. "Autocar and its customers have played a significant role in the shift toward alternative fuels in their respective vocational markets, and we are proud to lead the refuse industry in 3rd party system integration."
Hexagon Agility said it is committed to helping its customers make the transition to clean fuels.
