It’s Time to Prepare for ADAS
What was once only reserved for low volume, high-end vehicles is quickly and largely being integrated into mass-produced low and mid-level vehicles. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS for short, is an industry term used to group together the new technology features that are being implemented in vehicles to increase car and driver safety; technology items such as back-up cameras and sensors, automatic parking, adaptive headlights and more.
Just as all vehicles do, when they need service or repair they will be brought into your shop. But even something as simple as an alignment can require complicated calibrations and adjustments due to these new ADAS features. At Mitchell 1 we’ve compiled a collection of great reads and listens that can help explain why integrating ADAS into your shop’s future plans is the way to go.
