PLYMOUTH, Mich. — Robert Bosch L.L.C., a supplier of vehicle technology and services, and Hunter Engineering Co., a supplier of vehicle alignment systems and tire service equipment, are collaborating to develop and sell advanced drivers' assistance (ADAS) calibration systems in North America.
The integrated product includes a co-branded, Bosch-developed diagnostic tool, calibration fixture and associated hardware for ADAS-system calibration for the majority of global auto makers and vehicle alignment systems from Hunter.
The new calibration tools will soon be available through Hunter's distribution network.
"Bosch's knowledge in ADAS-system design adds an understanding on different driver's assistance systems that's not available on other products," said Michael Simon, director strategic business, Bosch Aftermarket division.
"Our technology background combined with the credibility customers expect from Hunter will deliver a calibration system that's innovative, efficient and accurate."
The calibration tools are designed to help technicians align safety systems quickly and accurately, the companies said.
"This venture brings together two innovative and exciting companies, working together for the first time on important technology for cars today, and into the future," said Kaleb Silver, director of product management at Hunter.
