Collision repair centers have an increasing responsibility around proper calibration of safety systems on ADAS-equipped vehicles following a repair. In this session, we explore pathways equipment manufacturers are taking to validate their solutions against varying sets of standards and approvals.

Doug Kelly, President, Automotive Aftermarket at Burke Porter Group will discuss the evolution of providing calibration solutions and ADAS verification at OEM factories around the world.  He will navigate how the lessons from OEM-integration have helped to identify opportunities to serve the collision market, and meet unique challenges faced on the shop floor, different from those in the factory. 

Jordan Krebs, Product Manager - Alignment and ADAS, Americas of Snap-on Equipment, will join Summit attendees to discuss the process of, and learnings gained from seeking out and receiving OEM approvals from specific manufacturers. John Bean manufactures the TRU-POINT ADAS calibration solution designed to perform recalibration according to the OEM specifications.

Josh McFarlin, President of AirPro Diagnostics will then detail the process and results of independent testing on the Auggie, a patented, mobile device for static recalibrations, using the NHTSA NCAP Crash Imminent Braking (CIB) or AEB, and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) test scenarios on vehicles re-calibrated with their solution. The tests were performed by FT Techno of America (FTTA) an independent vehicle evaluation company, at the Fowlerville Proving Grounds in Michigan. 
Following the presentations, equipment manufacturers will be joined by a panel of individuals from the collision repair industry, familiar with requirements, expectations and challenges in performing OEM-compliant calibrations. The panel will include Mike Anderson, President at Collision Advice; Andy Tylka, Owner at TAG Auto Group and Midwest ADAS; and Mandy Wynn, National Training and Support Manager at DCR Systems, LLC.
