Mitchell Adds Dynamic Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) Recalibrations within Mitchell Diagnostics

Sponsored by Businesswire

Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information
solutions to the Property
& Casualty (P&C) 
claims and Collision
industries, today announced updates to its dynamic special
test coverage within the Mitchell Diagnostics™ solution through a
partnership with Bosch Automotive Service Solutions, enabling Advanced
Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibrations for dozens of popular
vehicle models and expanding Mitchell’s leadership in supporting proper
and safe repairs.

First debuted on high-end luxury vehicles, ADAS systems, such as a Lane
Departure Warning System (LDWS), could potentially
help prevent millions of crashes
per year when properly used.
Dynamic calibrations are often required following front-end repairs or
windshield replacements. Unlike static special tests, dynamic
calibrations do not require targets, and often require a highly
specialized diagnostic device along with the need to drive the vehicle
during the process. Features of dynamic special tests available on
Mitchell Diagnostics include:

– Built-in dynamic calibration routines for forward-facing collision
avoidance systems
– Easy-to-understand, step-by-step instructions
to assist technicians
– Ability to pause and resume routines if
driving is interrupted during the calibration

Vehicle makes addressed by the dynamic special tests include
best-selling models from BMW, Chrysler/Jeep, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai,
Kia, Mazda, Mitsubishi, and Volvo. There is no additional subscription
charge for these capabilities and all Mitchell Diagnostics users will
automatically receive these capabilities with their next update.
Repairers are likely to benefit from improved cycle time and customer
satisfaction by completing these calibrations in-house, and improve
their profitability by completing the repairs using their own tools and
technicians. Both insurers and repairers will benefit from no
per-vehicle fees for outsourcing the calibrations to a remote provider,
mobile service, or dealership.

“Many collision repairers are looking to go beyond pre- and
post-scanning and begin to perform more diagnostic work in-house,” said
Jack Rozint, Vice President of Sales and Service, Mitchell
International. “The team at Mitchell is dedicated to supporting
collision repairers with the latest diagnostic technology, and is proud
to work with Bosch to assist in the repair and recalibration of ADAS
systems on today’s complex vehicles.”

“Automotive safety systems have come a long way, and we’re glad to
collaborate with Mitchell to provide the latest in ADAS calibration
technology,” said Danijela Haskin, Product Manager, Bosch Automotive
Service Solutions. “These latest updates extend Mitchell’s technical
leadership in diagnostics for collision repairers throughout North
