iMAXX Connected tech will enhance control and predictability for transporter’s fleet. Standard equipment for Blazo HCVs, Furio ICVs and LCVs and Cruzio Busses

Mahindra Truck and Bus (MTB) has announced connected vehicle technology for commercial platforms, Mahindra iMAXX. This telematics solution has been equipped into Mahindra BS 6 compliant CV range, including Blazo X HCV, Furio ICV and LCV and Cruzio bus range. With the right telematics platform, like Mahindra iMAXX, enhanced fleet operations efficiency leads to higher asset productivity/ fleet utilization, lower costs of operations, and higher fleet safety. Mahindra iMAXX, is an intelligent platform and a differentiated solution compared to other offerings in the market that focus mainly on location tracking based services and basic vehicle electronic data.

Mahindra is seeing an unprecedented number of success stories from its BS4 fleet customers who are achieving upwards of 10 percent fuel economy improvements across their fleet. Jalaj Gupta, Business Head, Commercial Vehicles, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “At Mahindra, we are the pioneers in Connected Vehicle technology, which has become even more important in the new BS6 era, given the increase in electronics-based vehicle controls. It is an intelligent fleet telematics solution that deploys cutting-edge telemetry technology like Dual CAN (Controller Area Network), 4G and other leading digital technologies, including Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, to provide powerful insights on vehicle health and performance. This helps in maximizing returns for Fleet Owners.” The core capability of the Mahindra iMAXX embedded device is to absorb large scale, high-frequency engine and allied system data securely and transmits on a real-time basis over 4G airwaves for server processing.

To put this in perspective, the amount of data transmitted through the Mahindra iMAXX device from the vehicle is on average 600 percent higher than the previous generation telematics systems available in the market. Once such a large amount of data comes into Mahindra iMAXX cloud servers, the machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence models put in place at the Mahindra iMAXX digital twin platform level helps provide accurate, reliable and predictive business and engineering insights. While most telematics solutions fetch and show vehicle data to customers without any further intelligence or analysis built-in, Mahindra iMAXX has the unique and unparalleled capability to add machine intelligence to normal data for enhanced credibility, efficacy and reliability – a First in Indian CV industry.
