ADAS Trends: Implications for the Future of Diagnostics & Calibrations

The next CIECAST webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, December 7th at 11 am PST/1 pm CST/ 2 pm EST: “ADAS Trends: Implications for the Future of Diagnostics & Calibrations.” The webinar will feature Tony Rimas, president of Repairify, and Nick Dominato, Repairify’s senior vice president of product.


During the one-hour live broadcast, Rimas and Dominato will discuss trends in the development and adoption of Automated Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), the effects these systems have on the diagnostic and calibration business model, as well as the impact of missing the ADAS calibration step on the automotive industry. 

 

“ADAS calibrations are an often-missed risk mitigation opportunity that impacts not only collision repair businesses, but also insurance providers, manufacturers and other suppliers,” said Rimas. “Despite the forward advancement of ADAS capabilities, our research finds that it’s going to become harder, not easier, to perform calibrations unless certain steps and standard processes are adopted.”

 

Topics will include: 

  • ADAS growth trends impacting the collision industry
  • OEM ADAS developments impacting diagnostics & calibrations 
  • The role ADAS plays in shaping the diagnostics & calibrations workflow
  • The impact of missed ADAS calibrations on the automotive industry
  • How the industry can adapt to the ADAS future 

All industry segments, including CIECA members and non-members, are invited to attend. Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A session.

 

Tony Rimas is president of Repairify, a family of brands that he said empower the automotive repair industry to master today’s modern, data-intensive vehicles. Rimas has over 20 years of leadership experience in the automotive industry beginning in San Antonio, Texas, with Red McCombs’ McCombs Enterprise, where he ran a top 50 dealer group as the director of operations. During the last two decades, he has gained extensive experience with automotive venture capital, which ultimately led him to asTech, a Repairify company, in 2019.


Nick Dominato, senior vice president of product for Repairify, grew up in the collision repair industry. His parents owned a regional paint jobber, and shortly after finishing school, he said he was introduced to an exciting new company in the industry that was doing OEM diagnostics. That company was asTech, a Repairify company. “I haven’t looked back since,” he said. In 2020, Nick founded adasThink, which he said is a first-of-its-kind software company that was intended to help collision repairers identify onboard ADAS systems and required calibrations as well as provide OEM documentation. The company was acquired by Repairify in 2021.
