ADAS Calibration Certification Badge Details
The Snap-on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Certification is designed to acquaint tech students with the four-step process of servicing an ADAS equipped vehicle. They receive leading-edge TOOLS FOR LIFE required for careers in vehicle and collision repair.
1.CHECK – Tru-Point™ uses highly accurate advanced camera technology to create a three-dimensional model of the area around the vehicle. The Tru-Point system also provides a complete analysis of the vehicle alignment condition in just under a minute. This process confirms the vehicle is within OEM specification before an ADAS recalibration occurs.
2.PLACE – Tru-Point streamlines the process to quickly help the learner place the targets in the precise OEM-required location(s). This process is accomplished without lasers and tape measures or the need for a level floor; without the need for reference values, guidebooks, or manual inputs.
3.CALIBRATE – Designed to grant total freedom, Tru-Point allows the learner to use any ADAS-capable scan tool to complete the calibration process; students will use a Solus Legend™ (or similar scanner) to complete the calibration process. Additionally, the system’s support of remote assistance diagnostic tools can expand a school’s calibration capabilities, especially when working on newer model vehicles.
4.PROVE – An easy-to-read report provides proof that the learner executed all steps required for a perfect calibration. Tru-Point validates the alignment of the vehicle, placement of the targets, and compliance with OEM specifications. Using a Snap-on scan tool (or similar scanner) confirms the completion of the calibration process.
