Technology & Telematics Forum To Take Place With NACE Automechanika in GA

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced the 2018 Technology & Telematics Forum will take place in conjunction with the 2018 NACE Automechanika Show at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. 

The half-day program will begin at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, August 8 and conclude at 6 p.m. 

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and similar vehicle technologies continue to redefine the repair process and the knowledge to properly repair today's vehicles. In today’s market, ongoing education and information are critical to the success of collision and service repair professionals. 

Industry trends clearly point toward expanding accident avoidance technology and the use of telematics data. Sensors, cameras, lidar, radar and similar developments in vehicle technology affect all industry stakeholders and the need to be prepared.

Attendees can expect to learn about the newest options on today's vehicles and what they need to do to be prepared when that vehicle comes into their shop. The impact on the repair process, claims, service, maintenance and cybersecurity is still being defined. Stay current and don't get left behind, as the future is here. 

All industry stakeholders are encouraged to attend, including but not limited to:

Collision and service repair facility owners, managers, service writers and estimators

Executive and management staff from MSOs, networks and franchisors

Insurance professionals

Technology providers

Mechanical and collision repair technicians **

**As vehicle technology continues to evolve, the repair process between mechanical and collision is increasingly becoming connected. The beginning of bridging the gap between those who repair today's automobiles is a goal of this event. 

Dan Risley, president of ASA, stated, “This event is unique in that it exclusively covers the latest in telematics and other new technology as it relates to the collision and service repair industries. ADAS and telematics is bridging the gap between the two automotive industries and we want to facilitate the cross pollination of knowledge and information. This year's advisory board played a significant role in developing content relative to the needs of the market and attendees of this program.”
