Over-the-air reprogramming of engine control modules is now available on all International Truck models powered by N9, N10 and N13 engines, the company announced.

The OTA reprogramming of the truck’s ECM will enable the driver or fleet manager to use a mobile interface to initiate reprogramming to approved International calibrations. The procedure can be performed at the customer’s facility over a secure Wi-Fi connection.

International is partnering with industry data and technology companies to ensure a high level of security, according to the company.

The reprogramming is free of charge on those specific models and will be available for purchase on all International truck models powered by proprietary engines, 2010 and newer at International Truck dealers.

“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,” said Bill Kozek, Navistar president, truck and parts. “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.”
