Autel Donates ADAS Calibration Packages to Collision Repair Schools

Autel is using its partnership with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) to develop safety curriculum.

Autel partnered with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) to donate an Autel Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) calibration package to eight standout U.S. collision repair school programs, the company said.

Autel said its IA800 Lane Departure Warning (LDW) ADAS calibration package includes an IA800 ADAS optical positioning frame system, LDW targets and patterns for 20 vehicle brands, a MaxiSYS 909 tablet with ADAS calibration software, a VCI/J2534 pass-thru programming device, and a full-color, 244-page Autel academy ADAS training manual.

The donation is the collaboration’s first prong in its just-launched, three-prong campaign to enable automotive vocational schools, colleges, and universities to develop curriculums using software and equipment that offers comprehensive ADAS vehicle and safety system coverage based on OE specifications, the companies said. CREF will gift an additional Autel-donated IA800 LDW calibration package at a CREF webinar titled “The Importance of Adding ADAS To Your Curriculum” on Nov. 15.

As the third prong in the campaign, Autel said it is offering the package at a reduced rate to automotive vocational schools.
