If you haven't brushed up on the basics of ADAS, start here to understand what it is a little bit better. Then you can start to explore why calibrating ADAS features after every structural repair is so critical.
If you keep up with industry trends, chances are you've seen a lot of discussion about ADAS recently. We've been talking about it here and here on our blog. The fact is, understanding ADAS will be critical to repairing new vehicles, so if you don't know much about it yet, it's time.
That’s true regardless of industry, but it’s always been especially true in collision repair—and these days, those measurements are more important than ever. As more and more technology is integrated into vehicles, which requires precise measurement and calibration during collision repair service. Often, this comes down to a millimeter.
Adaptive cruise control. Lane departure warnings. 360º views. Night vision. Blind spot detection. LiDAR.
One of the biggest topics making waves in our industry right now is Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS.) These systems include all the sensors and cameras that detect obstacles near a vehicle and warn the driver to prevent them from getting in an accident.
While ADAS is helping keep drivers safer than ever before, it also adds a lot of complexity to the vehicle repair process.
