Bosch introduces calibration system for ADAS

Nov. 6, 2020
The DAS 3000 advanced driver assistance system recalibration system intuitively guides technicians through steps to calibrate ADAS systems.

Bosch, a global supplier of technology and services, announced a new recalibration system designed for repairing current and future advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). These recalibration tools work with a large range of different OEM ADAS technologies including cameras and radar and is now one of the most precise and fastest calibration systems on the market. As autonomous systems become more mainstream, repairing these systems have also become more challenging. With the DAS 3000, technicians are able to calibrate ADAS technology from OEMs like General Motors, Ford, Toyota, and Volkswagen.

With this recalibration system, Bosch is simplifying complex ADAS repair jobs, allowing technicians to repair vehicles with confidence, speed, efficiency, and precision, says the company. Bosch also adds its in-depth knowledge of sensor development, assuring technicians that this system is designed with the future of autonomous vehicles in mind and allowing shops to take on the challenge of future technologies.

The DAS 3000 system includes:

  • Thirteen camera targets covering the most popular OEMS

The Bosch DAS 3000 incorporates thirteen camera targets that align each camera from the most popular OEMs including, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Mazda, Subaru, Nissan, Toyota, and Mitsubishi.

  • Recalibration fixture and distance markers

The system’s fixture holds a radar board and camera targets for sensor recalibration, while the distance and wheel hub alignment markers direct the user to place and align the fixture to the vehicle for proper calibration.

  • Bosch ADAS Positioning System (BAP)

The BAP utilizes technology and industrial-grade vision cameras to measure the distance and angles of the fixture, in relation to the vehicle, providing the most precise measurements ensuring the exact target positioning required for an accurate calibration.

  • Floor mat calibration targets

The DAS 3000 comes with floor mat calibration targets for some of the most popular OEMs including, General Motors, Ford, Nissan, Honda, and Mitsubishi.

  • Dual-purpose Volkswagen radar and camera board

Allowing technicians to streamline the tools required for vehicle recalibrations, the DAS 3000 includes a specially designed target board used for calibrating radar systems and Volkswagen cameras.

  • Technician training 

Bosch offers an easy-to-understand set-up and training for technicians and shop owners who purchase the full Master Kit DAS 3000.

  • Integrated target storage

A customized storage box makes finding the proper target easy and helps maintain the integrity and serviceability of the targets.

The Bosch DAS 3000 Master Recalibration Solution includes everything above, as well as the ADS 625 scan tool, a fixture with distance and wheel targets, and an SCT 815 radar reflector. The ADS 625 scan tool with ADAS Recalibration Software Package includes guided instruction, allowing technicians to walk through the entire recalibration process including simplified procedures, fixture placement, target selections, and sensor recalibration. LIDAR recalibration systems will also be integrated into the DAS 3000 system in the future.

The new DAS 3000 recalibration system is available now through Bosch Aftermarket distribution partners and resellers.
