Denso has opened its Connected Services Pennsylvania Technical Center in Scranton. The facility operates under Denso Products & Services Americas. According to management, the center enhances Denso’s ability to deliver aftermarket products and services — particularly as they relate to automotive inspection software and telematics systems — to customers across North America. The facility also bolsters offerings within its OES and non-automotive businesses.
“Advanced diagnostics technology continues to take on increasing importance, as vehicles rapidly become more connected and complex,” said Kenichiro Ito, executive director for Denso and CEO of its North American headquarters. “Through the technical center, Denso looks to make it easier for fleet managers and technicians to access data in vehicles that will empower them to make cars safer and more fuel efficient.”
The technical center was a part of Ease Simulation, an automotive diagnostics developer that Denso acquired in 2018. Ease and its products primarily focus on inspection, diagnostics, telematics and emissions. One of its leading products is VehicleMRI, a tool used to inspect and analyze automotive electronic systems and pinpoint hidden problems past typical “Check Engine” light issues.
