NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Noregon and PeopleNet announced they are teaming up to deliver a new, real-time health and safety monitoring technology for all heavy-duty truck makes and models.

The initial focus of the effort will be to deliver a PeopleNet fault intelligence solution, with integrated predictive analytics as part of the ConnectedFleet platform.

“Technicians don’t want to slow down the repair process, constantly switching between various pieces of software to diagnose one truck,” Shane Gilliam, Noregon’s vice president of sales, said at a Feb. 28 news conference at the annual meeting of American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council. “That’s where JPRO [Professional 2017 V1] is a huge benefit.” 

The product is being field-tested and plans are to release the technology soon, Gilliam said.

“We routinely heard from fleets that the marketplace lacked a comprehensive solution to turn their vehicle data into valuable information,” Bill Hathaway, founder and CEO of Noregon, said in a statement.

Tom Dorazio, director of product management for PeopleNet, said the new software will offer remote diagnostics for all vehicle makes and models.

“It covers all vehicle systems, including engines, transmissions, ABS systems, and all body components on the vehicle,” Dorazio said.

Noregon also announced its plans to form a partnership with MAHLE, an international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry.
