Mahindra Truck and Bus (MTB) on August 24 announced the launch of its connected vehicle technology, Mahindra iMAXX.
This new telematics platform is fitted into Mahindra’s BSVI-compliant CV range, including Blazo X HCV, Furio ICV and LCV and Cruizo range of buses.
The new technology, coupled with the BS-VI engines with FuelSmart technology and robust aggregates, retaining over 90 pc of the parts of the erstwhile BS-IV vehicles, will help fleet owners and transporters transition to the BS-VI ownership experience smoothly and efficiently, said a press release.
Mr 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 BSVI-era, given the increase in electronics-based vehicle controls.”
Mr. Gupta added, “The Mahindra iMAXX telematics solution is based on next-generation telematics technology and is at the heart of our brand promise –Har Cheez Guarantee Ke Saath, for our BS-VI vehicles. It is an intelligent fleet telematics solution which 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 maximising returns for fleet owners.” With the right telematics platform, like Mahindra iMAXX, enhanced fleet operations efficiency leads to higher asset productivity/fleet utilisation, lower costs of operations and higher fleet safety, added the press release. 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, it said.
