Mitchell 1 addresses ADAS service complications, talks solutions

Ben Johnson, director, product management, Mitchell 1, noted that advanced driver assistance systems can be impacted by seemingly unrelated repairs. “We talk to shops who say, ‘I have yet to work on an ADAS system,’ but they work on something unrelated that required them to move the ADAS component and that move requires recalibration,” he said.

Johnson stated that radar- and camera-based ADAS components need recalibrate when common repairs happen such as windshield repair. The onus is on the service location and technician to check the manufacturer repair information to see if ADAS components need calibration and/or service.

Watch the video below for Johnson’s overview of the Mitchell 1 ADAS quick reference feature that was introduced into TruckSeries earlier this year.
