Battle Motors has launched its latest innovation in digital interior systems. The company said the new system revolutionizes in-cab controls for vocational trucks and enhances functionality and driver comfort.

The LED color touchscreen display provides what the company calls a tech-forward ambience and an intuitive interface that simplifies operations, allowing drivers to focus on the road while managing vehicle functions seamlessly.

"Our primary focus has always been on driving technology and innovation to deliver value and peace of mind to our customers," said Paul Marsolan, chief software officer at Battle Motors. "With T-Mobile for Business, we're able to leverage advanced analytics and operations to empower our customers with real-time decision-making data, all made possible through our proprietary software, RevolutionOS."

Improving Driver Interaction with Vehicle Controls

By enhancing the driver's interaction with the vehicle's controls, Battle Motors aims to improve operational efficiency, safety, and job satisfaction. Drivers can access critical information and update settings directly from the truck or remotely via desktop computers or mobile devices, simplifying maintenance and management processes.

“It is a completely bespoke composition built around the most innovative and advanced technology we’ve ever engineered into a vehicle,” said Kelleigh Ash, chief technology officer.

The 14-inch center touchscreen display articulates for the perfect viewing angle anywhere in the cab and consolidates controls for HVAC, radio, entertainment, notifications, and messages.

Battle Motors Provides a Full Suite of Software

Battle Motors’ software offers a suite of features that include:

  • Digital dashboard with telematics — Access location data, route loading, service and parts intel, entertainment, messaging, and reporting via the Battle Motors’ RevolutionOS platform.
  • Overhauled user interface and graphics — Includes new performance analysis features to help drivers maximize their route performance.
  • RevolutionOS Features — Utilize real-time and historical location data, compliance and traceability tools, over-the-air updates, and dynamic route optimization to streamline operations and enhance efficiency.
  • Entertainment and messaging — Enjoy entertainment options like Spotify, Pandora, Netflix, and Hulu, alongside messaging capabilities for real-time communication between fleet managers and drivers.

APIs & Seamless Integration of Data

Battle Motors offers API access to its decision-making data. This enables seamless integration with third-party systems and trusted partners, empowering fleet managers with actionable insights and compliance capabilities including location data, real-time route following, and comprehensive reporting tools.

Advantages of the seamless integrations, according to the company, include:

  • Vertical integration — Move from off-the-shelf products to automotive-grade custom Battle Motors parts, providing full control of the truck's operations via touch screens and internet devices.
  • Innovation — Stay ahead with rapid deployment of new features, lightweight designs, and technical engagement with customers.
  • Technology consolidation — Today, many vocational operators have multiple suppliers of software and multiple screens. Part of the goal for Battle Motors is to eliminate some of these other screens and provide all contextual data for the operator in one place. Battle Motors can integrate the system with third-party applications depending on the API.

Collaboration with T-Mobile for Business

Battle Motors has collaborated with T-Mobile for Business, its preferred IoT provider, over the past several years to utilize T-Mobile's nationwide network in powering its proprietary RevolutionOS EV software system. This partnership facilitates real-time sharing of battery range and usage information, location tracking, preventative maintenance alerts, and over-the-air software updates for Battle Motors' electric trucks, enhancing efficiency, safety, and security. Also, T-Mobile Control Center offers comprehensive fleet visibility and management capabilities, ensuring seamless operations and customer satisfaction.
