LAS VEGAS — Mitchell Repair Information Co. L.L.C. has enhanced its Mitchell 1 ProDemand auto repair information software with the addition of a function to help technicians who need to diagnose, calibrate and repair Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) functionality in today's high-tech vehicles.
"The term 'ADAS' may not be immediately familiar to all shops, but everybody knows about blind-side monitoring, lane departure warnings and adaptive cruise control," Ben Johnson, director of production management, said.
"These are all ADAS features that shops may already be seeing in their bays, but the complexity is going to increase exponentially and independent shops need to be ready. Mitchell 1 is delighted to help technicians diagnose and repair these systems by making it easy to quickly find the components and details they need to service and repair ADAS features."
ADAS is a term that categorizes a variety of vehicle features that help drivers with everything from collision avoidance warnings to adaptive headlights and automated parking.
ProDemand includes detailed repair information for these systems, and the new Driver Assist – ADAS Quick Link button in the software provides access to a table consolidating all ADAS features for the selected vehicle and the specific components involved in those ADAS features.
The dashboard view 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.
When a technician selects a component from the ADAS table for the vehicle, ProDemand accesses information in the1Search Plus card format.
