Invest Before Taking the Calibration Leap

As the editorial director for AGRR magazine, I have been covering ADAS and calibration for years now—but still I am continually learning and it seems so are you. I was lucky enough to moderate a session during Auto Glass Week Preview Day on Tuesday, and the speakers gave some great insights. The idea was to show attendees why they should attend the ADAS Summit during Auto Glass Week in Orlando, June 7-9.

Though I was moderating the live session, so I was not taking notes, I couldn’t help jotting a few things down … like this quote from Jacques Navant, technical director for Don’s Mobile Glass/Calibration Station in Modesto, Calif.: “While it is important to invest in the technology, it is also important to invest in the environment.”

I thought that was a really helpful tip for companies considering calibration to keep in mind. It’s not just about the cost of equipment, or having enough installers, it’s about having the physical space as well. It was a sentiment also echoed by Chuck Olsen, senior vice president of automotive technology solutions for AirPro Diagnostics.

“Make sure you are ADAS ready before getting into ADAS capable stage,” said Olsen, referencing those environmental factors as well.

If you missed this session, stay tuned to as the webinar will be available soon, and you can learn all the reasons to attend Auto Glass Week™. I hope to see you in June where I plan on learning more right along with you.
