SAN DIEGO — Mitchell Repair Information Co. L.L.C. has upgraded its Mitchell 1 TruckSeries truck repair information software to streamline the delivery of information technicians need to diagnose, repair and calibrate Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) features in Class 4-8 trucks.
The latest version of the TruckSeries software includes a Driver Assist ADAS Quick Link button that delivers immediate access to a table consolidating all ADAS features for the selected vehicle and the specific components involved, Mitchell 1 said.
When a technician selects a component for the vehicle from the ADAS table, TruckSeries delivers complete information in the user-friendly 1Search Plus card format. Technicians have immediate access to the relevant information needed to diagnose and repair these complex systems.
Coverage spans vehicles from model years from 2003 to 2021.
"The complexity of ADAS features on commercial vehicles is increasing exponentially," Kristy LaPage, business manager for the commercial vehicle group at Mitchell 1, said, "and repair facilities … need quick access to complete information to efficiently restore trucks to safe operating condition."
Unlike cars and light trucks, the manufacturer of ADAS components for Class 4-8 commercial trucks is not always known, Mitchell 1 said. TruckSeries provides that detail with the component name when needed or when it is known.
Additionally, the software takes into consideration the component location on the vehicle (left, right, forward, outside, etc.) to help guide the technician and increase efficiency.
The dashboard view with TruckSeries presents an overview of related components, including whether the components of an ADAS feature will require calibration, special tools like targets or a scan tool to complete the job. Having all the details together in a single location can save time by providing a full picture of all ADAS-related features on the vehicle.
Mitchell 1 claims its TruckSeries is the only comprehensive truck repair information software suite available for Class 4-8 trucks. The product is integrated with Manager SE Truck Edition, Mitchell 1's truck shop management software.
