Advanced all-makes ADAS calibration from Bosch

Bosch’s new DAS 3000 enables automotive workshops to quickly check and adjust front-facing radar and camera systems.

The increasing number of cars and vans equipped with front-facing radar and cameras has made advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) calibration an everyday task for modern automotive workshops. Bosch’s new computer-based DAS 3000 provides an efficient solution for all-makes repairers, bodyshops and windscreen specialists.

Working in combination with the Bosch ESI[tronic] 2.0 software and KTS diagnostic tools, coloured retainers enable the quick and easy mounting of calibration targets at predefined vehicle-specific positions. Integrated cameras and guided software routines then digitally measure the distance to the vehicle and the alignment to the axle.

Height adjustable for use in headlight test or lift bays, the DAS 3000’s large wheels and spring-loaded brake make for simple maneuvering and stable positioning. There’s also a large rack for your computer or tablet, with the latest KTS modules featuring optimised pass-thru and compatible with both OBD and the new ethernet- based DoIP interfaces.

Mark Heard, Bosch Marketing Manager for Europe North said: “The widespread adoption of ADAS is a leap forward for safety but it has increased the complexity of many repairs. Even jobs like windscreen or sensor replacements often now require system recalibrations. Our new DAS 3000 covers the front-facing driver assistance systems on all the most popular models. Testers have been particularly complimentary about the short set-up times for VW and BMW vehicles, which really boost workshop efficiency.”
