I-CAR® announced the creation of a robust, online ADAS resource library, https://info.i-car.com/ADAS, to provide the industry with a centralized information hub in support of the rapid growth of Advanced Driver Assisted Systems (ADAS) and its accelerated impact on the collision repair process.

The complimentary resource features news and information relevant to ADAS training, topics and trends, including insights from ADAS Subject Matter Experts within I-CAR and the Inter-Industry. For instance, a series of ADAS-related podcasts and webinars dive into considerations related to everything from proper calibration equipment to “[What Happens] When the ADAS Calibration Does NOT Work?” the title of a recent webinar featuring I-CAR Repairability Technical Support (RTS) Manager Scott Van Hulle, Automotive Technical Research and Development Manager Bud Center and Subject Matter Expert Manager Jeff Poole.

The most common problem in a failed calibration comes down to an incorrect repair or attachment, explained Center. To that end, Webinar Guest/Subject Matter Expert Paul Bostel, Master Technician at LaMettry’s Collision, agreed and reinforced why it’s “super critical to have photos [of the] repair process to understand what was done.”

“The resource is another way I-CAR can share its expertise in ADAS collision repair, and its neutrality in bringing together voices from OEMs, suppliers, insurers and others within the inter-industry, to tackle the challenges of today’s ADAS repair while preparing us for what’s ahead,” explained I-CAR’s Jeff Peevy, VP-Technical Products, Programs & Services.

The new ADAS resource library features:

  • Webinars
  • Podcasts
  • Industry News
  • I-CAR courses focused on ADAS
  • Additional resources such as I-CAR’s Collision Reporter magazine and Repairability Technical Support™ (RTS) Portal

“The ADAS resource library is an easy way to quickly see I-CAR’s latest – and upcoming – ADAS courses,” he said. Peevy suggested bookmarking the page to keep a pulse on regular updates, as ADAS technology continues to flood the market. For more information, please visit www.i-car.com/adas.
