Truck Manufacturer Up to 170,000 Connected Vehicles

Scania's first digital Fleet Management services were launched in the early 2000s, using information obtained from the vehicles' electronic management systems to analyze fuel consumption, wear and tear, and also how a driver shifted gears, braked, and used the engine's speed range.

Scania, a VW brand, now has 170,000 connected vehicles, five years after introducing connectivity as standard in European markets. During 2015, almost 70,000 connected trucks and buses were added, according to the company.

"Our customers are increasingly seeing the opportunities presented by connectivity in order to improve the efficiency of their vehicle performance and therefore reduce costs. Interest is growing in line with the extension of our connected services offer, also among bus and coach operators," said Mattias Lundholm, who lead Scania's Connected Services and Solutions business unit.

Scania's first digital Fleet Management services were launched in the early 2000s, using information obtained from the vehicles' electronic management systems to analyze fuel consumption, wear and tear, and also how a driver shifted gears, braked, and used the engine's speed range. These data formed the basis for the Scania Driver Training service, later supplemented by the Scania Driver Coaching service, which today are key elements in the Ecolution By Scania concept, which Scania reported allows trucking firms to cut their fuel consumption by 10-15 percent.

Scania introduced the Scania Watch in 2014 and calls it the trucking industry's first wearable device. It is a wristwatch with which the driver can remotely read vehicle data and obtain information about driving and rest times as well as his or her physical condition. "The Scania Watch is the first example in our development of connected services, which extends far beyond communication with the actual vehicle and its electronic systems. In the future, hauliers and drivers will only need to perform two keystrokes – one to unlock their phone or tablet and one to click on a Scania icon – to be able to order anything from time at the workshop to food and other services at the next stop," said Lundholm.
