Plochingen – An increasing number of modern passenger cars, vans and LCVs is equipped with driver assistance systems detecting critical situations via camera systems and radar sensors. They warn the driver and intervene in case of imminent danger. Automotive workshops thus have to calibrate these systems more and more frequently once they completed repair or maintenance tasks. By means of its DAS 3000, Bosch now provides a universal and computer- based calibration and adjustment device for driver assistance systems. Its vehicle specific calibration targets make DAS 3000 suitable for vehicles of all common manufacturers. The system works in combination with the Bosch diagnostic software Esitronic 2.0 online and a diagnostic tester. This flexible and powerful complete solution provides workshops with quick access to different diagnostic procedures for the calibration of driver assistance systems of different vehicle manufacturers.

Fully digital distance measurement and alignment towards the vehicle

The scope of delivery includes a multi-functional XL VW-group calibration target which can be used for both the calibration of front cameras and – vertically installed – for radar calibration. Colored retainers allow quick and easy mounting of the calibration targets at predefined vehicle-specific positions. This results in very short set-up times – for instance, for VW-group or BMW vehicles.

In a completely digital manner, integrated cameras and guided software routines measure the distance towards the vehicle and the alignment towards the driving axle. This ensures quick and accurate positioning of the DAS 3000 in front of the vehicle thus increasing the efficiency of workshop routines.

The scope of delivery also includes a high-precision measurement bar taking up the vehicle-specific calibration targets of the Bosch multi-target shop. The calibration device can also be used easily and flexibly, on works stations set up according to manufacturer specifications, on headlight test bays and on ground-mounted lifts alike, thanks to the height adjustable offset. For comfortable and easy maneuvering at the workshop, the unit is equipped with large wheels. A spring loaded stamp brake ensures firm and stable positioning. In addition, there is also a large rack for the diagnostic computer.

Specifically developed for everyday use at workshops, Bosch also offers robust tablet computers and diagnostic testers complementing DAS 3000. The calibration of driver assistance systems is performed by means of integrated Esitronic 2.0 online workshop software. KTS 5-series communication modules work with both OBD vehicle interfaces and new Ethernet-based (DoIP) interfaces. With their optimized “pass-thru interface”, the KTS modules also provide straightforward access to the vehicle manufacturer portals.

For body shops, glass service specialists and workshop professionals

Conclusion: By now, cases requiring the calibration of camera systems and sensors have become an increasingly common part of everyday workshop life. After accident repairs, windshield replacement and replacement of defective sensors or even after performing tuning measures, the systems need to be readjusted. DAS 3000 supports the workshop staff even in case of troubleshooting on assistance systems and general adjustment and service tasks thus ensuring high efficiency and quality at the workshop
