Bosch DAS 1000 calibration set: professional adjustment of sensors and cameras of driver assistance systems
Different calibration targets turn the Bosch DAS 1000 calibration set into a multi-brand tool
Sensor and camera calibration provides automotive workshops with new opportunities to generate additional revenue. However, this requires proper knowhow, manufacturer information on sensors and camera systems as well as the appropriate workshop equipment. Using its DAS 1000 calibration set, Bosch offers an ADAS workshop tool allowing accurate adjustment of radar sensors and cameras of driver assistance systems.
Originally developed for vehicles produced by the VW group, the significantly expanded system with different calibration targets can now be used for almost all European, Japanese and Korean makes.
For this purpose, the calibration targets are connected to the SCT 1415 adjustment bar allowing highly accurate adjustment and making the calibration set a universally applicable multi-brand tool. For the exact determination of the geometric driving axle, the robust calibration set can be combined with Bosch FWA 4650+ 3D or Bosch FWA 4455 CCD wheel-alignment systems. In an easily understood step-by-step manner, a special FWA-software program guides the operator across proper positioning of the measurement device.
In case the device is only meant to be used for camera calibration, for instance at a glass service specialist workshop, Bosch also offers a basic version in line with the manufacturer specifications. For this purpose, the calibration set is complemented by a laser module for the alignment towards the vehicle’s longitudinal center line and the SCT 415 front-camera calibration device.
Bosch ESI[tronic] Evolution workshop software completes the ADAS calibration equipment. It provides users with several vehicle-specific calibration and adjustment routines for radar/camera-based assistance systems as well as for intelligent lighting systems. Workshops are supplied with data and training methods for the sensor adjustment on all common vehicle models on the market.
Thorough preparation and professional tools ensure success
As a prerequisite for successful calibration of ADAS systems, workshops are to meticulously comply with the most diverse manufacturer specifications. Professional calibration systems approved by the manufacturers, such as Bosch DAS 1000, FWA software or ESI[tronic] workshop software, provide excellent support for mechatronics – throughout the complete calibration procedure.
