Auto Glass Week and ADAS Technology
Auto Glass Week is just around the corner and industry players are making their final preparations for the annual event. This year’s edition is special as it features many firsts, including the debut of the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Summit. ADAS is a disruptive technology that is poised to be a game-changer. There are plenty of opportunities for those who can understand and harness it. Among the topics to be discussed are:
Companies that repair and replace glass will need to know how to identify the relevant features in a vehicle. A lot of advanced vehicle technologies rely on this panel. Identifying the intricacies of the existing setup allows them to respond better to cases that come their way. They can make the right decisions and fix problems faster.
Auto Glass Requirements
One of these decisions is the kind of windshield required for replacements. There are several types with each having their own unique characteristics. They are not always interchangeable. Depending on the situation, you might have to get a specific kind to help restore its original performance or strength.
Things might not end with the installation of a fresh panel. Sometimes calibration will be necessary. The summit will provide guidance regarding this requirement. If it the case demands it, then installers must follow the correct steps for perfect calibration.
The session will also touch on the complexities of claims handling when the vehicle in question is equipped with ADAS technology. It’s a good venue to ask questions regarding legalities. Interested parties can learn how to protect themselves from liability and customer complaints. Technicians may also have to undergo training in order to appropriately deal with these cases.
Auto Glass Week will take place on the first week of October and will feature marathon sessions on the topics above. Get more information on the website or social media pages.
