Changes in the automotive market have brought huge opportunities in the automotive aftermarket. Under the wave of intelligent and electrified vehicles, ADAS calibration equipment and electric vehicle inspection and maintenance equipment have attracted more attention.
At the Birmingham exhibition, the two ADAS products exhibited by SmartSafe were particularly eye-catching.
ADAS HD is the first ADAS calibration device for commercial vehicles launched by SmartSafe. Support LDW (Lane Departure Warning), and ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) system calibration.
ADAS HD is genuinely "big but not rigid" as a large-scale vehicle auxiliary equipment. Its beam and main frame can be fully folded, half-folded, and fully unfolded to meet the needs of storage, movement, and work. different needs.
During the calibration process, ADAS HD supports horizontal, front-to-back, and left-right multi-directional fine-tuning, without the need for cumbersome mobile devices, and it can achieve parallel alignment in one minute.
The ADAS radar three-in-one calibration tool is designed for radar system calibration, and the applicable scenarios are more professional. On this device, users can easily mount the ACC radar reflector, conical radar target or doppler simulator on the three-in-one calibration bracket to complete the vehicle radar system calibration.
The device supports the calibration of the adaptive cruise control system, blind spot monitoring system, lane change assist system and front corner radar system.
The exhibited equipment also includes X-861 PRO 3D four-wheel aligner, iSmartLink D01 automobile intelligent detection tool, CNC 605 fuel injector cleaning tester, AC 500 refrigerant cleaning recovery filling machine and other star products.
The trip to the UK, while cooperating with many customers, will help the global promotion of the SmartSafe brand and bring more new opportunities for future business development.
