The camera and sensor calibration (CSC) tool, developed by Hella Gutmann Solutions specifically for workshops, bodyshops and glass specialists, allows them to recalibrate the cameras and radars now fitted to vehicles fitted with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The CSC tool communicates with the vehicle’s complex control systems to ensure that its camera and/or radar, usually fitted on the vehicle’s windscreen and incorporated into the rear view mirror or near the front grill, is correctly calibrated to the vehicle.
This calibration is critical to ensure that ADAS safety systems such as the adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, autonomous emergency braking and ‘intelligent lighting’ technology, are correctly aligned.
As a growing number of cars now have a rear view camera fitted as standard, more drivers rely on them when reversing, which is why their recalibration after a service or repair must be accurate.
Hella Gutmann Solutions has therefore recently introduced three new extension kits to provide the complete calibration solution of the rear view and all-round vision cameras, in addition to its existing forward facing solution.
The new additions, designated Rear Cam Kit I Basic, Rear Cam Kit I Addition and Rear Cam Kit II Side, must be properly aligned to the rear axle when using the CSC tool and a Hella Gutmann Solutions mega macs diagnostic device.
The Rear Cam Kit I Basic is a multi-brand solution, as it calibrates several models, including Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Seat, Skoda, Subaru and VW, with further models to be added on future software updates.
This piece of equipment is ideal for many aftermarket businesses as is compatible to a wide range of vehicle models, which allows them to expand their capability and profitability.
