ZED Connect at a glance

ZED Connect was incubated by Cummins Inc. in partnership with the Boston Consulting Group under the belief that if manufacturers worked together to leverage data and streamline application delivery, their joint customers would be better served.

By forming the first platform dedicated to whole-truck analytics, ZED Connect is at the forefront of commercial vehicle analytics.  

ZED Connect is the first company to provide AI-based whole-truck analytics to help transportation companies prevent unplanned downtime and information overload. Backed by major Tier 1 manufacturers including Cummins Inc., ZED Connect’s technology extracts data from key parts of a vehicle, examines the interdependencies among parts, and applies analytics models to determine exactly when maintenance is needed, enabling fleets to schedule it during planned downtime to minimize operations impact. ZED Connect’s approach is already bringing significant benefits to hundreds of fleets and will be absolutely essential in an autonomous vehicle world, where there are no drivers to spot emerging maintenance issues.

ZED Connect analytics and applications will facilitate the parts and service business for Tier 1 manufacturers while helping fleets avoid unplanned downtime. For example: if ZED determines that engine service is needed, it can alert a fleet manager and/or driver to the issue and the nearest Cummins service center, so that the issue can be proactively addressed during planned driver downtime before a breakdown occurs.
