Panel Discussion: Repair of the Future

When your car talks, who is listening? Questions around who owns the customer and the data within the customer’s vehicle are becoming more and more relevant.  What defines FNOL (First notice of loss) and how is it defined? Are FNOL signals a mechanical repair or a need for service? The data available in today’s car is changing, and how it is being used is impacting the future of collision and service repair.

4:45 PM - 5:30 PM

Panel Discussion: Advanced Drive Assistance Systems (ADAS) Vehicle Calibration

Calibrations using equipment will be discussed. What does it all mean? Why is it required? What happens if calibrations are not completed or are done improperly? What about calibrations that are necessary without using equipment, on items like windshields, cameras, lidar, radar, etc. What does that entail and why is it required? What happens if this is not completed or done improperly? Are aftermarket solutions are available? Are they accurate? Some shops have created their own solutions including targets for calibrations. If the system is calibrated and works, does this mean it works?

Moderated by: Donny Seyfer, Executive Director, NASTF (National Automotive Service Task Force)

Today's Car: Front and Center

The topic of Service Readiness cuts across all disciplines in our industry. The focus of the forum is on ADAS and all the new technologies, that technicians must be prepared to service. The goal in this presentation is to bring the car, front and center so we can identify the items we must come to terms with, so that collision, mechanical and maintenance facilities are prepared to provide exceptional service for the owners of these vehicles.
