Hunter Explains Driver Assist Systems in Two New Videos

Posted on August 18, 2017

Hunter Engineering Co. has released two videos that explain the purpose and function of driver assist systems and the importance of proper mechanical and safety system alignment.

Today, driver assist systems are the fastest growing vehicle technology and yet are often a mystery to vehicle owners. These systems, such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and brake assist, increase driver safety by using cameras and radar to monitor the vehicle’s surroundings and help drivers avoid collisions.

“Of the approximately 15 million vehicles registered in the U.S. in 2015, almost one-third of these vehicles have the option of being equipped with driver assist system technology, so it is very important for shops to understand proper reset procedures. Hunter is committed to providing educational materials like our new Safety System Alignment videos to the public,” says Kaleb Silver, senior product manager.

Hunter says failure to properly align safety systems can result in dashboard warning lights, steering wheel vibration, vehicle pull or increased steering effort. Driver assist systems can even malfunction or shut down.
