Thatcham Research unveils new ADAS course


Thatcham Research has launched a new ADAS Aware e-learning course to address the existing skills gap around the technology.

The course provides technicians with a comprehensive understanding of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), including how the different technologies operate and how to accurately identify and calibrate them.

Created by in-house experts from Thatcham Research’s Automotive Academy, the online-only ADAS Aware course offers learning flexibility while also delivering the high levels of competency required to identify ADAS and conduct repairs without compromising their functionality.

Dean Lander, Head of Repair Sector Services at Thatcham Research, said, “ADAS technology is a pillar of modern automotive design. The importance of understanding how it factors into the repair process cannot be overstated. Robust knowledge of how different repair techniques impact the functionality of ADAS features is crucial, with even the slightest sensor misalignment having a pronounced effect on the performance of safety-critical systems.

“ADAS Aware will provide technicians with the skills needed to identify these technologies, understand requirements in advance of repair and feel empowered to carry out repairs around ADAS technology in a timely and efficient manner, reducing key to key times.

“The training also provides an overview of how ADAS factors into the journey to autonomy, a sector of the UK car parc which is set to expand in the near future which garages must be prepared for.”
