The partnership with 3D-P and full utilization of the edge computing capability of the IEP removes technology clutter from the cab and significantly reduces the number of onboard devices that require downtime for installation and maintenance.
The result: best-of-breed applications, lower CAPEX through application integration and reduced dowtime through less hardware used.
