Volvo Trucks  to Partner with Geotab on Connected Vehicles

Volvo Trucks North America has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Geotab,  a provider of telematics whereby Volvo customers not currently equipped with Remote Diagnostics, Volvo’s telematics platform that’s standard on all Volvo-powered models, will have connectivity options. 

According to Conal Deedy, director of connected services for Volvo Trucks, “The easy accessibility of this information will enable customers to make informed decisions to enhance uptime, productivity, fuel efficiency, compliance and safety.”

Volvo introduced Remote Diagnostics in 2012. It is designed to proactively monitor key truck components for critical fault codes including the engine, Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission and aftertreatment systems, significantly increasing uptime for Volvo customers.

If a potential issue is detected, Remote Diagnostics evaluates the code, develops an analysis for repair planning and ensures repair instructions and parts are available, all while the truck remains in service.

Information about a potential issue is captured and communicated electronically through ASIST, Volvo’s web-based tool that enables real-time communication between customers, dealers and Volvo Action Service staff at Volvo’s Uptime Center, as well as Volvo field personnel.
