Are you a commercial vehicle maintenance and chassis repair workshop? Do you want to ensure that your trucks safely get back on the road? If so, the Autel Advanced Driver-Assistance System (ADAS) from Triad Diagnostic Solutions is a necessary tool for you to use. It allows you to perform precise and correct calibrations to keep your commercial trucks and other vehicles operating safely.
What is Autel ADAS?
Autel, a multi-brand diagnostics tool for the commercial and automotive vehicle sector, has included Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration in its diagnostic software.
It’s a multi-brand solution that will give your workshop a significant competitive advantage by allowing it to handle the dynamic calibration of ADAS systems, which are becoming more common in commercial vehicles.
Calibrations of the vehicle’s onboard ADAS systems can be accomplished using sophisticated multi-brand hardware and software solutions. Lane departure, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with pre-conditioning instructions, diagnostic tools, wiring diagrams, technical data, and technical procedures are all covered.
Key Features of Autel ADAS and what’s included:
- MaxiSYS MS909 diagnostic tablet with ADAS calibration software and MaxiFlash VCI pass-thru programming device
- Specific cable kit
- ADAS multi-brand software
- Wheel Clamps, Targets, Laser Reference
- Laser Measurer
- Target Frame
- On-site handover training
- 12 Months Eclipse technical support and remote assist (Vehicle & I.T.)
- 12 months compatible software license and updates
In a nutshell, the Autel ADAS Software is an exciting development that could make driving any type of vehicle safer.
Autel ADAS Calibrations
Calibration means realigning cameras and sensors, usually attached to windscreens and around the vehicle, which input information and ultimately control a vehicle’s Advanced Driver-Assist features.
When replacing a windscreen, technicians must disconnect cameras and sensors. The camera alignment may be disrupted after reconnecting, and replacement glass positioning may differ slightly. To return all systems to their original location and condition prior to the windshield replacement, ADAS calibration is required.
ADAS Calibration Functionality:
- Reading and Deleting of Fault codes
- Displaying of vehicle settings
- Live data reading/recording
- Parameter modifications
- Detailed interactive wiring diagrams
- Radar Calibration Static and Dynamic
- Lane Departure Calibration
- Calibration of emergency braking and adaptive cruise control
Types of ADAS Calibrations
ADAS calibrations can be broken down into two main types:
- Autel ADAS for commercial vehicles, including commercial delivery trucks and vans.
- Autel ADAS for automotive vehicles, including cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs.
Each calibration type has a different set of features that make it ideal for your business needs. For example, if you’re looking to add more safety features to your commercial vehicle fleet, the Autel ADAS calibrations might be right for you!
The Autel ADAS also includes the following calibration features:
Self-Centering Wheel Connection
It’s a solution that will help the workshop add value by allowing it to manage the calibration of ADAS systems, which are becoming more common in commercial vehicles. Autel develops its own calibration equipment for ADAS systems on commercial vehicles, making it the ideal diagnostic tool for truck drivers.
This calibrating and diagnostic device is part of the workshop’s toolkit. It comprises a portable folding frame, two-wheel centering connection tools with laser pointers, and many interchangeable panels for different vehicle brands and types.
ADAS Calibration Equipment is characterized by fast assembly and simple handling, compatible with the Autel diagnostic tablets, which completes the calibration process. This is a solution that will offer significant value to the workshop by allowing it to handle the calibration of the ADAS systems.
Why is ADAS important?
The ADAS provides a clear overview of all important vehicle data and enables fast detection of problems. As a result, technicians can quickly identify faulty components such as sensors, actuators, or brakes and fix them before they become dangerous.
Additionally, Autel employs innovative technology to assist you in accurately identifying measures, distances, and angles. This means that your technicians can perform calibrations with ease and accuracy, even when performing complicated tasks such as measuring the curvature of a windshield or determining correct positioning during alignment work.
How does ADAS support commercial vehicle drivers?
When it comes to highway driving, ADAS technology is especially advantageous for commercial vehicles like pickup trucks and buses. These vehicles require more space than regular passenger cars—and therefore need additional warning about upcoming hazards. That’s where ADAS comes in!
ADAS technology supports drivers to:
- Maintain a safe speed and distance.
- To drive within the lane.
- To avoid overtaking in critical situations.
- In an increasingly complicated road environment, to pass safely through intersections.
How do you perform an ADAS calibration?
Autel ADAS for commercial vehicles can be calibrated in just a few simple steps.
First, you’ll need to connect your test vehicle to your ADAS unit. This can be done with the included USB cable (or any other cable that is compatible with both devices). Once you have your commercial vehicle connected, all you need to do is launch the Autel software and follow the on-screen prompts. You’ll be guided through the calibration process with clear, easy-to-read instructions and graphics of each step of the process.
And that’s it! You’re all set!
