Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are becoming more common on motor vehicles. All Volkswagen group vehicles built from now on will have adaptive cruse control as standard.
The slightest adjustment to the suspension geometry or body will cause significant differences in the way the ADAS operates and may even cause them to fail. This is why, as a bodyshop, it is important that we keep up to date with the latest technologies that are being developed for vehicles.
Over the next year, we will be investing heavily in ADAS calibration equipment. This ensures that we are able to carry out more repairs and calibrations in house. We will be able to calibrate ADAS on all of our manufacturer approvals.
Along with the equipment comes training, which we will be taking part in; we will have trained our technicians to manufacturer standards by the end of 2018.
