MADISON, Ind., – Chief Collision Technology announced a partnership with Burke Porter Group to create Mosaic advanced diagnostic technology (ADT), the industry’s first-ever automated advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) calibration system. By 2022, the majority of all new vehicles on the market will have ADAS systems, such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure and blind-spot monitoring. Mosaic ADT will help customers navigate the complex future of collision repair.
“We want technicians to have the confidence to make accurate and error-free ADAS recalibrations through comprehensive understanding of new vehicle technologies,” said Lee Daugherty, vice president of global collision sales for Chief Collison Technology. “As ADAS technology on vehicles is constantly changing, it was important for us when designing this product to partner with someone like the Burke Porter Group, which has spent the last 30 years developing this same technology that OEMs use for end-of-line calibrations.”
Why Mosaic ADT is different
Mosaic ADT’s state-of-the-art software uses the OEM repair procedures to accurately and efficiently guide technicians through the calibration process, ensuring that the most up-to-date information is used. Unlike other aftermarket systems that rely on centering, squaring and positioning targets by manually using tape measures, plumb bobs and chalk lines, Mosaic ADT does it automatically.
It also verifies that the correct target is placed in front of the vehicle by sensing which target is hung and validating it against the OEM repair procedure. That means no manual measurements or adjustments are required, reducing the risk of human error. This is a key factor in improving the accuracy of calibration, lowers the risk of liability and greatly reduces the set-up time.
Today’s vehicles are increasingly complex, requiring technicians with the technological expertise and training necessary to make ADAS repairs.
“When ADAS systems are damaged, recalibration is a critical part of the repair process,” added Daugherty. “That is why we require each technician using Mosaic ADT to go through specialized training and certification in order to operate the system because it is imperative for technicians to understand how to properly repair, recalibrate and test a vehicle before sending it back out on the road.”
