Omnitracs, Cummins collaborate on remote calibration technology

By Team Writer / September 27, 2019

Omnitracs and Cummins worked together to create Controlled Software Updates (CSU) technology, which provides fleets with the capability for over-the-air downloads of Engine Control Unit (ECU) software. This greatly simplifies the logistics involved in updating ECU software, and increases compliance with upgrades. CSU’s swift download speeds also reduce the amount of downtime involved in these upgrades, which can cost $1000 a day at an average of about 2.3 days of downtime. CSU will make it much more efficient for fleets to keep their ECU software up to date.

Key Takeaways:

  • Omnitracs and Cummins worked together to develop their remote calibration and ECU software update technology.
  • Being able to download and install ECU software upgrades over-the-air greatly simplifies that logistics of making sure the software is up to date.
  • Connected Software Updates also increase compliance with updates while also cutting the amount of downtime involved in downloading and installing new ECU software.

“The Cummins over-the-air programming solution, Connected Software Updates, allows drivers to receive engine-control-unit (ECU) software updates remotely, leveraging their existing Omnitracs hardware.”
