Who's buying EVs right now? And more importantly, who's most likely to buy them in the near future? This is a question that OEs and repair operations want answered, and one researcher has some insight.
The goal of connected, autonomous transportation looms out there, but there are lots of processes that need to be worked out before getting there, such as making sure systems can determine the cause of a traffic jam.
The ability of repairers to properly calibrate and repair these systems is a critical link in the operation of ADAS. A new report shows the efficacy of various ADAS systems when functioning as intended.
A representative from RoboSense, a developer of LiDAR vehicle systems, talks to ADAPT about how the technology is evolving, as well as how autonomous vehicles have already been assisting in social distancing guidelines.
As ADAS becomes more prevalent, it won’t just be collision shops working on those components. The work of aftermarket modifiers to change vehicles while maintaining ADAS specs offers insight into how these systems are calibrated.
Ben Cruz, director of the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology at Macomb Community College, describes how the slower mechanical changes in vehicles of the past are now rapid electronic changes that have the same big impact.
