Over 83 million vehicles in the US are now equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), assists in protecting drivers from human error and faults on the road reducing accidents and related injuries. However, when it comes to calibration of the ADAS, three are two essential servicing concepts that techs need to remember:
- ADAS calibrations meeting OEM specifications.
- Document everything you do from pre-calibration setup to post-calibration verification.
By adding the Autel IA800 Intelligent ADAS from Triad Diagnostic Solutions to the Autel Standard (stationary red) calibration frame, your shop can make more efficient and accurate ADAS calibrations in less than half the time. This not only puts you on top of your competition and provides the opportunity for increased revenue but also mitigates any potential errors during the calibration process.
Quick, Easy, Reliable
Using six high-resolution cameras and ADAS positioning software from Autel, the IA800 optical positioning system and Standard Calibration frame rapidly turn into a precise framing center and vehicle distancing unit. In less than a minute, your techs can frame a vehicle. This speed reduces the time of repairs and provides your shop with the most accurate measurements in the industry. Using the included wheel clamps, cameras can target the rear wheels, while the standing target can either be directed in the front of the vehicle or off to the side ensuring the most reliable calibration possible.
The IA800 partners with your MaxiSYS tablet ADAS software to recognize positioning targets and calculate the current angle, distance, and offset position of the vehicle’s frame. Using onscreen instructions, your techs can move the frame, adjust its angle, and ensure the current values of the vehicle match the required ones. When parameters are met, you’ll see checkmarks appear on the tablet display, indicating that the vehicle is calibrated correctly.
Precision is Key
With the IA800, you can perform precise calibration for all the ADAS systems, including:
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
- Night Vision (NV)
- Blind Spot Detection (BSD)
- Head-Up Display (HUD)
- Rear Collision Warning (RCW)
- Around-View Monitoring (AVM)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
The upgraded MaxiSYS MS909 tablet features the processing speed and memory and when combined with the IA800 doubles the speed of the ADAS calibration process with improved accuracy.
