Five (5) Critical Processes in ADAS Equipped Vehicle Repairs



1. Quickly and accurately Identify ADAS systems, components, component locations and required calibrations: This process should be completed as early in the process as possible so the repairer can educate the consumer about their ADAS systems as well as the required repair processes, including calibrations. This is also the first step in completing an accurate estimate/repair plan. (Our ADAS CoPilot™ Pro platform (www.adascopilot.com) is the industry’s best system to quickly and accurately Identify ADAS systems, components, component locations and required calibrations.)



2. Creating an accurate estimate/repair plan: If this step is not completed repair processes, cycle times, delivery dates, supplements, CSI and more are negatively affected. During this process, access to ALLDATA, OEM, I-CAR and other validated information, knowledge and repair procedures is critical!(Our ADAS CoPilot™ Pro platform (www.adascopilot.com) is the industry’s only system that offers access to ALLDATA, OEM, I-CAR and other validated information, knowledge and repair procedures IN A SINGLE WEBSITE AND MOBILE APP)



3. Completing a safe and proper repair: This goes without saying. Again, access to ALLDATA, OEM, I-CAR and other validated information, knowledge and repair procedures during this process is critical! (Our ADAS CoPilot™ Pro platform (www.adascopilot.com) is the industry’s only system that offers access to ALLDATA, OEM, I-CAR and other validated information, knowledge and repair procedures IN A SINGLE WEBSITE AND MOBILE APP)


4. Properly completing and documenting the calibration process: Because ADAS calibrations directly affect a vehicle’s steering, braking and acceleration, every step of the ADAS calibration process must be documented. Detailed documentation of the entire calibration process validates a proper calibration was performed and can be used to reduce liability. (Our Calibration CoPilot™ platform (www.calcopilot.com) is the industry’s only end-to-end scheduling, management, documentation and automated invoicing system specifically designed for ADAS service and calibration businesses)



5. Properly validating the ADAS systems operate as designed BEFORE delivering the vehicle back to the vehicle owner: This process should be completed by properly performing and documenting a post-repair/calibration test drive. A properly performed and documented post-repair/calibration test drive also acts as a final QC process in ADAS repairs and calibrations! (Our patent-pending Test Drive CoPilot™ platform (www.testdrivecopilot.com) is the industry’s only system that provides OEM test drive and dynamic calibration procedures, the ability to record and report on audio, video, speed, mileage, technician, detailed map and an ADAS system Pass/Fail checklist)



In 2022 15 million more ADAS equipped vehicles will be driven on our roads which will lead to more ADAS repairs and calibrations. By properly performing and documenting the five (5) critical steps listed above you will reduce comebacks, increase revenues, improve CSI and reduce liability!
