Autoglass launches ADAS 'Over The Air'

Published:  12 July, 2019

Autoglass has launched the Over The Air calibration solution which adds to its existing ADAS proposition. The combination makes what the company calls the Total Calibration Solution for ADAS diagnostics, coding and calibration.

When a vehicle is brought to an Autoglass centre for a ADAS calibration, the Over The Air device is connected to the car via the OBD port, which then connects to the internet. This allows two-way communication between an ADAS trained technician at Autoglass and a remote ADAS Master Technician who is able to access the OE manufacturer software, relay diagnosed faults, and provide the actions needed to calibrate. This removes the need for dealer calibration.

A recent review of existing bodyshop industry data by Autoglass showed that 28.7% of body repair businesses had turned down jobs due to the technology and repair techniques required.

Neil Atherton, Sales & Marketing Director, Autoglass, said: “Our new solution is the first of its kind and will have a significant impact on the aftermarket. Currently the ADAS market is highly fragmented, with vehicle manufacturers requiring different hardware, software and instructions for their ADAS. By providing us with direct access to OE manufacturer data this solution has made it easier than ever to code and calibrate vehicles’ sensors and get drivers back on the road safely.”

He added: “At Autoglass we pride ourselves on our innovation, and we are delighted to be able to launch this game-changing solution that will help solve the ADAS conundrum.” 

The solution was launched at the Autoglass: LIVE event, held at the Belron Headquarters in Egham, Surrey on Thursday 4 July.  The event showcased capabilities from Autoglass and Autoglass BodyRepair. It was attended by senior executives from across the insurance, fleet, bodyshop and automotive industries.
