A CLEAR VISION
HOW TO PREPARE FOR A FUTURE IN AUTO GLASS REPAIR
According to a report by the Yano Research Institute, the number of Level One ADAS installed in vehicles is expected to peak at 28 million units by this year, while that of Level Two systems is expected to exceed 30 million units in 2024. The rising trend in auto glass is more than clear.
ADAS calibration is often required even on the smallest of collision repairs. For collision repair workers, this means that every vehicle that rolls into the shop must have an intricate, detailed repair plan before any type of work begins.
Whether it is a large or small collision, ADAS calibrations are incorporated into most newer and modern vehicles. Therefore, it is essential for collision repair shops to know how to calibrate ADAS systems. As per a study by Consumer Reports, not all dealerships have the tools necessary to recalibrate ADAS sensors and cameras, but fortunately, there is a factory-backed service department that can usually point you in the right direction. There are also other sources such as manufacturer-recommended collision repair shops.
Even with the increasing popularity of ADAS systems, the market has faced challenges in scaling up this technology. One of the biggest constraints is its high cost. Incorporating these systems into more factory-built vehicles requires significant investment in compliance, safety standards, and other areas. Moreover, improving the efficiency and performance of these systems comes with a hefty price tag.
With more and more OEMs announcing plans to bring vehicle tech to the cyber age from improved A.I. assistants to reality augmented windshields and dashboard inserts, preparing to offer ADAS calibration must be done with a strong eye for detail.
