CIECA announces ADAS calibration webinar
"ADAS Calibrations—Do It Right and Document What You Do" will feature Brent Johnson, director of global product management for collision at Chief Collision Technology.
CIECA has announced its next webinar, scheduled for 19 May, will focus on ADAS.
He said: "More than ever before, drivers are relying on ADAS such as lane departure, automatic emergency braking and even autonomous driving features to keep them safe. While these systems represent major leaps forward in safety, they are not foolproof, and these vehicles are still involved in collisions. When these systems need repair or replacement, they must be calibrated."
During the one-hour live broadcast, Johnson will discuss the importance of providing a foundation for proper repairs and ADAS calibration procedures. He will also share best practices for repair record keeping and documentation.
"Depending on the vehicle manufacturer, the repair may require a dynamic calibration (drive around), static calibration (using targets) or even a combination of the two. If calibration is not done, the ADAS features may not work properly, and can pose a safety risk to the driver. Because the repairing shop may be liable should something go wrong, it's important for shops to keep detailed records of what repairs were performed and how the repair was done," Johnson added.
