Knowing All About ADAS Will Make You a Smarter Technician [RR 519]

Ben Johnson, Director, Project Management, Mitchell 1

  • ADAS training class- training is maintenance, instructors need the training to give a training class Full class- many was their first time hearing about ADAS 
  • ADAS is not a “thing” it is industry generated category- each car company will use different terms for ADAS systems (ex: blind-spot monitoring), no standardization 
  • Every technician is working on an ADAS even when they don’t realize it- removing the radar sensor for a different problem and reinstalling without calibrating could lead to bigger issue 
  • Evolution of calibrations- dynamic to self-calibration 
  • Emerging technologies- electrification of vehicle, the complexity of vehicle is happening mostly electronically 
  • The best tool for technicians is experience
  • ADAS is stepping stone to autonomous vehicles- the promise of fewer accidents and less deathIn the year 2016 study showed approximately 10,000 lives could’ve been saved with ADAS (lane departure, emergency braking system)     
  • How do you teach a computer to have a brain?
