Remote ADAS calibrations for bodyshops

A new service has launched in the UK offering bodyshops remote ADAS calibration, OE scans, diagnostics and resets.

US-based asTech has introduced its service to the UK market to help it meet the new Industry Insurance Requirements.

The technology uses OE scanning tools to provide full vehicle scans, clearing of fault codes and calibrations on sensors, lidars and radars. A full report is then sent on completion of the job to show exactly what has been carried out.

Richard Taylor, asTech European business development director, said: “While there is still a lack of clarity of ADAS technology within the vehicle among bodyshops and SMR centres, asTech is offering a cost-effective solution that combines an easy-to-use device with the know-how and expertise of trained ADAS technicians. Simply put, asTech reduces the need to move a vehicle to a dealership and helps the shop enhance the vehicle repair cycle time.”
