Opus IVS has announced QuickADAS, a revolution that enables a vehicle repair facility to directly perform calibrations on the DriveSafe diagnostic platform from the ADAS Checklist.
With this latest software upgrade, key productivity enhancements include eliminating the need to move off the tool for ADAS calibrations. The new functionality presents ADAS calibration requirements including targets and part numbers on-screen in the diagnostic tool, enables the shop to immediately perform the necessary calibrations using the DriveSafe tool's proprietary capability and then can upload the results into the CCC work file for the vehicle. Finally, an on-screen diagnostic tool checklist also provides guidance and documentation that critical calibrations are completed before the post-scan runs. There are currently seven patents pending on the innovations contained in QuickADAS, further cementing the status of Opus IVS as the undisputed pioneer in ADAS and Remote Services.
