Mitchell Adds ADAS Recalibrations Within Mitchell Diagnostics

May 15, 2019—Mitchell on Wednesday morning announced updates to its dynamic special test coverage within the Mitchell Diagnostics solution.

The updates were made possible through a partnership with Bosch Automotive Service Solutions, and enable ADAS calibrations for dozens of vehicle models. ADAS (advanced-driver assistance systems) such as lane-departure warning, were largely designed to help prevent vehicle crashes.

Dynamic calibrations are typically required following front-end repairs or windshield replacements. Unlike static special tests, dynamic calibrations don't 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. 
  • Step-by-step instructions to assist technicians. 
  • Ability to pause and resume routines if driving is interrupted during the calibration. 

"Many collision repairers are looking to go beyond pre-and post-scanning and begin to perform more diagnostic work in-house," explained Jack Rozint, Mitchell's vice president of sales and service, in a press release.

Vehicle makes addressed by the dynamic special tests include those from BMW, Chrysler/Jeep, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Mitsubishi, and Volvo. There's no additional subscription charge for these capabilities, and all Mitchell Diagnostics users will automatically receive the capabilities with their next update.
