Zonar and Navistar announced partnership which allows Navistar customers to use its OnCommand Connection platform to access fault and diagnostic data from Zonar Telematics Control Units (TCUs). Zonar also plans to integrate with Navistar’s Gateway Integrations, using telematics devices as a gateway to streamline software solutions without the need for additional hardware. This partnership allows mutual customers to easily access both smart fleet management capabilities from Zonar and Navistar’s OnCommand Connection’s Advanced Remote Diagnostics solutions.
Navistar customers without Zonar line-fit or retrofits, can add aftermarket telematics hardware such as the Zonar V4™ . IC Buses can come pre-wired for Zonar TCUs and other Navistar vehicles that obtain aftermarket V4™, can still benefit from this partnership – as data from Navistar’s OEM TCU boxes and OnCommand® Connection data flow can be seamlessly accessed via Zonar’s products and services.
As the Zonar and Navistar partnership evolves, both companies will look to take advantage of Navistar’s OnCommand Connection Advanced Remote Diagnostic solutions and Gateway Integrations on International’s factory-installed telematics device as a gateway to streamline software solutions without the need for additional hardware. Potential Zonar and Navistar collaborations could include consolidating software solutions onto Navistar’s factory-installed telematics devices and pre-installations on the IC Bus line to benefit school bus customers looking for rich data and actionable insight capabilities off the factory floor.
