Big Picture: Integrating Autonomous Vehicles

There are still a lot of details that need to be worked out to bring a complex autonomous future to our everyday lives.

Autonomous vehicles have made their journey from an idea, to a proposal, through laboratory testing and now, they will be on your roadways. Partners for Automated Vehicle Education hosted a webinar last week detailing just how this integration of autonomous vehicles happens. 

Big Picture: Tesla's Unsavory Chip

It's one of the most important parts on the car. In order to operate at such a high level, the vehicles need to be controlled by one unit, a brain if you will. All vehicles have a brain of some variation and for Teslas, it is the MCU. 

Get an expert shop's perspective on how they deal with these MCUs during the repair process.

Small Picture: When Calibrations Fail

Small picture issues dive into the processes that your shop will learn to love. Here, experts explain how technicians can troubleshoot a failed calibration and check their work along the way.
