Volvo Trucks has introduced a “dynamic” maintenance service through its ongoing partnership with Noregon Systems Inc., an internet of things company that specializes in connected-vehicle solutions.
Dynamic maintenance is intended to provide a more accurate approach to planned maintenance needs and replaces traditional “set-mileage scheduled” service appointments.
Currently, dynamic maintenance is specific to powertrain-related maintenance services in Volvo Trucks, according to the Greensboro, N.C.-based company, a unit of Volvo Group.
It leverages intelligence from vehicle data analytics using enhanced software features from Volvo Trucks’ remote diagnostics systems and ASIST service communications platform combined with Noregon’s Trip Vision Interface.
Noregon CEO Tim Bigwood said in a release, “Customers recognize that Volvo has a history of investing in opportunities that directly influence their vehicles’ uptime, and we are grateful to assist in those initiatives.” — Transport Topics
