ADAS Article In Auto Inc By Ryan Kooiman
There's so much to talk about here.
Ryan Kooiman wrote a very nice article about ADAS. I know that many of us have been hearing about, working with or even teaching ADAS for some time now but there are still a lot in the industry that haven't been so fortunate and don't know where to start. Follow this link
and read the article. I suggest that you share it with your industry friends. Make sure that they are getting prepared for the cars that are in their bays now. Better now than never, right?
Ryan wrote this article for Auto Inc.org which is a web based Industry magazine from ASA (Automotive Service Association). If you don't know, ASA is a trade association that has had our backs since 1951 and will have our backs for many years to come. ASA is the only trade association that has Bob Redding, a Washington DC representative that has been at helping our trade get the representation that it needs in Washington DC. Bob is a bad ass!
See what ASA can do for you and your shop but more importantly, see what you can do for ASA. hey need professionals like you supporting them so they can support us.
Did I mention that ASA is having their Annual Business Meeting And Conference at the Hurst Conference Center in Hurst, TX. from April 30th-May 3rd. where Robby Schrimsher will be presenting an ADAS class with a live demo. A big congratulations to Robby Schrimsher for his exciting new position as the Training Development Manager with Standard Motor Products. I'm looking forward to seeing Robby at Vision next week but I'm really excited to see him present at ASA's Annual Business Meeting and Conference in April.
Here is the link for details on ASA's conference.
Brin thanks for posting that information. Techs don't realize that they don't know what they don't know until something like ADAS comes into their shop and they have no clue. Ryan's article hits the nail on the head and is a good starting point for those not in the know. Our industry has a habit of waiting until the last minute to find out about new technology. Playing catch up when a problem
I look forward to seeing you this week in KC. I'll be there with my other freezing friends Pete Meier and Gary Keyes.
Brin it going to be real cold for you Florida guys ...see u soon
Ryan K, the author of the first article, and I must be in different tax brackets. This comment is very interesting: "Fortunate Time: We are fortunate to be operating in a time where OE level information and tooling is very affordable" I don't find anything particularly "very affordable" about OEM service info, scan tooling and ADAS equipment as a whole, especially when one has to
I agree with you. Not to mention the new ADAS building I would have to have built in order to do the calibrations. I think that is a big thing that gets looked over. I would think a good amount of shop don't have the room in the shop or room to build something to be able to accomplish this. Chris
I did just that. We needed more room anyway, but the investments keep on piling up:
