What's the Cummins Hero spotlight? It's a monthly series where we’ll share the story of a Cummins Hero nominated through our HERO program.
Sure, Cummins powers trucks. But you might be surprised at what else we either power or provide dependable backup power to ensure smooth operations. Here’s just a few:

The partnership, which also includes Peleton Technology, Peterbilt Motors Company, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Next-Generation Energy Technologies for Connected and Autonomous On-Road Vehicles program, also known as NEXTCAR.
“We look forward to applying our expertise and working with the other partners,” said Ed Hodzen, Director of Advanced Controls Engineering at Cummins. “We can improve our customers’ business through real-time optimization of the powertrain utilizing off-board computational resources.”
COLUMBUS, IND. – Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today stated that it does not supply engines for the FCA vehicles that are discussed in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Notice of Violation issued today, nor was Cummins named.
Cummins does not use defeat devices and is committed to meeting emissions standards. Cummins has a long history of working transparently and collaboratively with regulators to develop and meet emissions requirements.
Battling steering problems for much of the race, Cummins engineer Aaron Quinton understandably kept his eyes fixed on the narrow mountain road ahead as he drove Team Valvoline’s red truck at the 49th annual SCORE Baja 1000 endurance race in Baja California, Mexico.

The gray, rectangular machine emitting a bright blue light doesn’t look particularly impressive as it quietly goes about its work at the Cummins Technical Center (CTC) in Columbus, Indiana....
But some believe the technology it uses could one day change manufacturing as we know it.
3D printers can take extremely detailed instructions to make precise objects a layer at a time, with relatively little waste and, theoretically at least, anywhere in the world. That could not only impact innovation, but perhaps inventory someday and transportation, too.
