Escribe gets ADAS touch

Users of escribe can now identify ADAS fitment and system features following an update to Methods Direct.

With thousands of new cars now fitted with Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technologies, the update from Thatcham Research will enable the identification of ADAS technologies fitted to a vehicle requiring repair.

Joe Dunn, product lead at Thatcham Research said, ‘The correct identification of ADAS fitment is a huge challenge for repairers and bodyshops. Understanding which sensors or technology types are present on a vehicle will allow repairers to order parts and ascertain what equipment they may need in advance of repair.’

The ADAS Fitment feature can be found within Methods Direct allowing users to identify sensor type, technology types, fitment and system attributes.

In 2017 to date, over 450,000 pieces of repair method information have been served and more than 4,000 individual requests to the Ask Our Expert service answered via escribe.
