The collision industry needs to get serious about ADAS calibration
Toronto, Ontario -- June 14, 2019 -- Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are taking over the auto industry. A report by the IIHS and NHTSA found that approximately half of the vehicles produced in 2017-2018 had ADAS as a standard option on the vehicle. Furthermore, AAA found that ADAS was either standard or available as an option on 93% of model-year 2018 vehicles. It’s not just standard on luxury cars either – Toyota has had ADAS standard on over 90% of their vehicles since 2017. Nissan puts ADAS in every Altima, Rogue, and Sentry (among others) it sells. And it’s been standard on every Honda Accord sold since 2018.

Window to the past: a brief history of the windshield
May 9, 2019 -- Toronto, Ontario -- In 1904, the first windshields—at least as we would recognize them—began to appear on vehicles. While internal combustion engine-powered automobiles had existed for about twenty years by the time of this innovation, earlier motorists had not been terribly concerned about wind protection. Older automobiles were not able to travel quickly enough for the wind to be troublesome for drivers and passengers.
When the Windshield Helps Drive the Car, a Repair Isn’t So Simple
Fixing a cracked windshield used to be the kind of repair a technician could perform in a few minutes in your office parking lot while you were at work. Today, the same repair could take hours and require expensive computerized equipment in a special facility. And it will probably cost much more. If the repair is not done properly, it could have dire consequences.
Together, Fuyao will keep your classic cars on the road
