Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technologies are becoming increasingly available with approximately 92% of all new vehicles including at least one ADAS safety system feature. ADAS systems, such as forward-collision warning (FCW) and automatic emergency braking (AEB), are designed to provide warnings and/or features that assist the driver with enhanced vehicle safety while operating. With the growing rate of adoption of these technologies, there will be an increased need to add ADAS recalibration capabilities to service your customers and increase your revenue.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are in place because human error is the leading cause of road accidents. ADAS helps reduce the number of accidents happening on the road and minimize the damage of ones that can’t be avoided. Some of the features included in today’s ADAS are:
- Pedestrian detection & avoidance
- Detection of blind spots
- Automatic braking
- Lane departure warnings
- Traffic sign detection
With complete ADAS systems from Autel, your shop has a wide range of capabilities to offer valuable ADAS recalibration services to your customers. Agile Truck Tools supplies ADAS recalibration systems, so you can ensure that every vehicle that leaves your shop is safe and ready for the road. But first, let’s take a deeper dive into ADAS and how it works.
How ADAS Operates
ADAS uses camera and infrared and radar-based sensors to help the driver and the vehicle achieve greater awareness while driving. This multi-sensor-based system is an intricate part of the computerized ADAS safety systems found in today’s vehicles and can help drivers reduce their risks of accidents and save lives. Through automated intelligence, these various data points gather information such as automotive imaging, 3D object resolution, and even high-visibility weather and lighting situations providing more safety from hazardous driving conditions and added protection from other drivers. But there’s also another reason ADAS is advancing: autonomous driving.
Automakers are manufacturing vehicles that are the next best thing in mobile-connected devices. ADAS plays a crucial role in autonomous driving, gathering information and sending out signals from all car points through the SoCs and EUC. Using these sensors and the ADAS system as a whole, a vehicle can get a 360-degree vision of what’s happening around it. This means that vehicles have the capabilities to meet high-performance expectations, all while reducing the demands in power and footprint.
ADAS software is rapidly changing and being updated with each new year and make of a vehicle. Autel engineers work tirelessly to provide users with regular software updates that provide the newest OE level diagnostic and ADAS safety system coverages and calibrations. By coupling your MaxiSYS diagnostic tablets with ADAS software, your shop can perform dealer-level inspections and calibration in a matter of minutes.
You’ll be able to check systems functions such as:
- Parking Assist
- Around View Monitoring
- Rear Collision Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Forward Collision Warning
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Night Vision
