Automotive technology major Bosch and Hunter Engineering, a global expert in vehicle alignment systems have collaborated to develop and sell advanced drivers’ assistance calibration systems (ADAS) in North America.
For the first time, the collaborated companies said the technicians will benefit from an integrated alignment system that delivers repeatable and documented calibration.
Combining Bosch’s experience in ADAS technology with the quality expected from Hunter will deliver an innovative calibration system that every shop owner requires.
The integrated product includes a co-branded, Bosch-developed diagnostic tool, calibration fixture and associated hardware for ADAS system calibration. The product will be pitched for the majority of global vehicle makers and vehicle alignment systems from Hunter.
Michael Simon, Director Strategic Business, Bosch Aftermarket division, “Bosch’s knowledge in ADAS system design adds an understanding on different driver’s assistance systems that’s not available on other products.”
“Our technology background combined with the credibility customers expect from Hunter will deliver a calibration system that’s efficient, accurate and off course innovative, Simon said.
Customers are depending on workflow efficiency and accuracy in their ADAS systems, and top technicians know that safely calibrating each vehicle can take time. These calibration tools are designed as to support technicians align important safety systems quickly and accurately, saving the customer money.
Kaleb Silver, Director of Product Management at Hunter, said, “This venture brings together two innovative and exciting companies, working together for the first time on important technology for cars today, and into the future.”
Soon, the new calibration tools will be available through Hunter’s distribution network.
