Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has announced significant upgrades to their Detroit Connect system. These upgrades are important, as they’ll give drivers added safety and extra information while on the road. DTNA said that fleets with the new Cascadia and Detroit engines will have access to engine control later on this summer. There are a few reasons why this system will benefit drivers, and each one will make the process of driving easier.
Availability Of Reports
Fleets will now have access to Detroit Diesel Engine Control (DDEC) through the portal. This ability to easily access the reports takes away the unnecessary trips.
“By making DDEC reports available through the Detroit Connect Portal, we are eliminating the need for fleets to bring a vehicle into the shop and extract the reports,” said Lauren Attinasi, the product strategy manager of connectivity for DTNA. These reports will substantially increase driver insights in the future.
More Information, More Security
The connect portal gives a distinct advantage to drivers, as it constantly updates you on diagnostic information. Whether it’s the fuel economy, cruise control miles or potential safety hazards, these updates will bring greater clarity for those on the road. Through this diagnostic information and testing, drivers will be able to recognize how much longevity they can sustain throughout a day on the road. The data extracted will help determine the best course of action for each individual and their vehicle’s performance.
