The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) announced that “The Future of ADAS,” a panel discussion focused on the evolution of ADAS, will be held at the NORTHEAST Show March 18-20 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (MEC) in Secaucus, N.J.
Trends point toward ADAS technology being included in nearly every new vehicle sold by 2025; the number of vehicles with this technology is already continuing to grow daily. Fixing these vehicles requires a complete overhaul of previous practices, safety measures and buy-in from customers and shop personnel alike.
Moderated by veteran auto body industry journalist Joel Gausten, “The Future of ADAS” will include panelists Nick Barbera (ADAS Diagnostics/Union Collision), George Lesniak (Autel), Eric Newell (AirPro Diagnostics) and Frank Terlep (Auto Techcelerators, LLC).
“Technology has changed so much in the last five years, it can be very difficult to keep up — and that’s just for those who are trying to,” said Jerry McNee, president of AASP/NJ. “Those who aren’t even taking a look at ADAS are really going to have issues. Liability falls on the shop. Knowledge is power. If you aren’t fixing vehicles correctly because you are not investing the time, it’s going to be a hurdle. If you aren’t willing to learn, who is going to do it for you?”
Seats are limited for this panel and the other educational classes taking place at NORTHEAST 2022. From the labor rate issue to the tech shortage crisis and more, this training program has everything a repairer needs to survive and thrive in today’s ever-changing industry.
