The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) will present “ADAS: The Future is NOW,” a seminar focusing on advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), for members via Zoom, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 18.

AASP/NJ will welcome John Anello of Auto Tech on Wheels and Nick Dominato of adasThink, who will both give individual presentations on how this technology is impacting the auto body field and what is at stake for repairers.


Anello will provide an informative overview of ADAS, address what components are involved, discuss calibrations and touch on where this technology is headed.


Dominato will draw from adasThink’s data and research to provide clarity on the growing need for ADAS calibrations and how little these operations are actually being performed by the industry at large.


AASP/NJ President Jerry McNee, of Ultimate Collision Repair in Edison, NJ, stresses the importance of attending this meeting, as many technicians are likely misinformed on how to properly handle ADAS-equipped vehicles.


“It comes down to liability. You only know what you know; ignorance is not going to be an excuse in the future," McNee said. "You are either fixing vehicles correctly or you’re not. There may be shops doing calibrations, but how do they know what type of calibrations need to be done? Just because you are getting a clean scan doesn’t mean the car doesn’t need calibrations. This class is here to open up your eyes.”


This meeting is free to AASP/NJ members in good standing. Pre-registration is required and can be done by clicking here. Attendees will be sent a Zoom link prior to the meeting start.
