Vehicle Bodycare Centre managing director George Boyes has constantly invested his time and efforts back into his business to stay at the top of the game in the light-to-heavy vehicle repair world, with approvals such as Mercedes, Land Rover, Lamborghini, the police and ambulance services to name just a few.

With the addition of the new Mercedes-approved Haweka SAD500 ADAS calibration system, supplied by equipment specialist Bremco, the Vehicle Bodycare Centre is now fully equipped not only to rebuild almost any vehicle on the road, but guarantee that the new safety systems are calibrated correctly following repair.

Customer reassurance is key to the success of Vehicle Bodycare, says Bremco.

“Today’s HGVs are among the safest vehicles on the road thanks to DAS (driver assistance systems), ADAS, and ACC (adaptive cruise control) systems, [but] all need to be checked and calibrated for optimum accuracy,” the company said.

“ADAS are electronic auxiliary systems in motor vehicles which support the driver in certain driving situations… for example, lane departure warning, emergency brake assist or automatic distance control.lr bremco2

“The focus is often on safety aspects, but also on increasing driving comfort. Improving economy is another aspect.

“ADASs act on the accelerator, brake and steering of the vehicle automatically or on demand. They warn the driver with visual, audible or tactile signals before or during critical driving situations.”

ADAS systems must be calibrated under the following circumstances, says Bremco: when an error occurs in the LDWS or AEBS system; when a radar, camera unit or windscreen is replaced; if wheel alignment or driving level was modified; or post accident repairs.
