Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) was front and center at the committee meetings of the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) in San Antonio in September.
AGSC’s Education Committee, chaired by Jacques Navant of Don’s Mobile Glass, continued its work on updating the technician certification test and enhancing the Master Tech program.
The AGSC Education Committee was followed by a meeting of the AGSC Marketing Committee, which is chaired by Peter Brown of Tiny & Sons Glass. Its focus was on the development of new programs to increase membership and provide new services.
“We’ve got tons of great ideas,” said Brown. “Our challenge will be choosing among them as we go forward.”
This committee was followed by what proved to be the main attraction of the day: the first meeting of the newly formed AGSC ADAS committee. Through a lively and thoughtful exchange of information, the committee developed guidance on how AGSC members will want to handle ADAS in the future.
“There’s a ton of misinformation out there,” said ADAS Committee chair Jeff Olive of Glasspro. “We want to help our members and the industry know what is necessary and what is not.”
Olive said the day was extremely productive.
“We are not sure what form our work product will take,” said Olive, “but the information we approved will be available soon.”
The AGSC AGRSS™ Standards Committee also met during Auto Glass Week™. Members reviewed the newly revised standard and discussed what steps, if any, are necessary to accommodate recalibration issues in the standard in the future.
The meetings were followed by a CEU Insurers’ Forum for insurers and Registered Members.
“We got a good response,” said Jennifer Cannon of Century Glass. “Both members and insurers gained a ton of info.”
