As of the start of 2016, new vehicles require a minimum of two advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to qualify for a 5 star Euro NCAP safety rating. The minimum requirement is to have Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW), both of which are complex systems requiring specialist equipment to recalibrate following repair to the vehicle.
Underlining its prominent position in the field of advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) calibration, Hella Gutmann Solutions (HGS) now offers an Institute of the Motor Industry Quality Assured Programme (IMI QAP) certificated ADAS camera and radar training course, to equip workshops to handle this important technology with complete confidence.
With advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and smart vehicle technology here to stay, technicians need professional diagnostics and calibration tools equipped with top-of-the-range features that provide the precise vehicle data and information, to complete a fast and efficient repair.
Hella Gutmann Solutions has added three new extension kits to its camera and radar recalibration tool line-up for the independent aftermarket. The camera and sensor calibration (CSC) tool enables independent garages to calibrate and repair advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The new kits are compatible with rear view and all-round vision cameras, extending CSC’s existing, forward-facing solution.
