Mahindra DiGiSENSE was launched today, opening up a new dimension to the vehicle ownership experience of their customers. A digitally enabled sensing technology, it connects Mahindra vehicles, tractors, trucks and construction equipment to the cloud, and will be available across their entire portfolio. With its launch, Mahindra becomes the first OEM in India to integrate its product line-up onto a cloud-based technology platform.
DiGiSENSE empowers owners, fleet operators, drivers, dealers and service teams to access vital information about their vehicles on a real time basis from the driver’s seat and remotely. Drivers can contact emergency breakdown services or pull up a route planner at the touch of a button, fleet owners and dealers can track the location of their vehicles in real time, while remote diagnostics and reports allow service teams to monitor the vehicle’s health and productivity parameters, on a real time basis. It is the first of its kind technology platform which is multi application and multi product enabled.
Connected vehicle technology has been fast evolving, and DiGiSENSE is a modular, scalable, flexible platform that will initially be available in the Jeeto and Imperio in the small commercial vehicles space; the Arjun Novo in the tractor space; the Mahindra Blazo in the heavy commercial vehicles space; and the Earthmaster in the construction equipment space. It will be a subscription-based service at an affordable price.
With DiGiSENSE, Mahindra has created a unified, cloud-based technology platform for its entire mobility sector. The same platform is customized to suit different applications and different sets of customers, while providing a seamless and unified experience. A customer owning different Mahindra vehicles will still have the same user experience with individual and unique customizations.
This makes Mahindra the first Indian OEM to create an ecosystem of technology partners like cloud service provider, map provider, telecom network provider, hardware manufacturer and other third parties, through an open-architecture platform that can be upgraded on a periodic basis. Version upgrades will happen over the cloud without a customer having to step into a showroom or dealership.
