Jordan Krebs, product manager for John Bean, said with the update, the calibration tool became "even more efficient and productive.
To improve coverage, the ADAS database found in the Tru-Point tool now has more cross-reference capabilities with the database found in our aligners; this will allow Tru-Point to provide relevant information more quickly and enhance the user experience.
After updating to 1.8.0 software, Tru-Point customers will also be able to receive the 2023 R1 specs update which will further improve coverage."
Tru-Point is billed as a one-stop solution for ADAS calibration and uses highly accurate advanced camera technology, targets and software to uncover vehicle alignment issues, allowing users to perform accurate ADAS calibration.
According to John Bean, some of the new features in software update 1.8.0 are:
- Initial remote scanner vendor integration;
- Target subscription expiration message on the home page;
- Activation on first boot and network connection;
- Send messages and promotions to the home page;
- Add pointer target measurements to manual mode; and
- Customer information is now available on the menu after selecting a vehicle
Tru-Point performs a check of the ADAS-related wheel alignment values and monitors each step of the setup procedure, to ensure that OEM safety specifications have been met before an ADAS calibration is performed.
By eliminating manual measurements with advanced camera technology, technicians know everything is placed correctly and the system will automatically compensate for the location of the vehicle.
A comprehensive, easy-to-read report provides documentation that the technician has done all the steps needed for an accurate calibration.
