The Autel system currently has its own alignment-like clamps and cameras. The process for the Autel system includes setting up the clamps, setting the distance between the cameras and the vehicle (depending on the type of vehicle and procedure being performed), and then “squaring up” the cameras, by which you must adjust the cameras in two separate ways: angle from the camera to the floor, and angle of the fixture perpendicular to the vehicle. This process can take around 10-15 minutes (don’t worry Autel Army- you’re getting paid hundreds for these procedures).
However, with the Hunter aligner and the cameras, the Autel system will now use the Hunter alignment targets, and automatically square up. Now, all you have to worry about is the distance between the vehicle and the fixture, which takes less than 60 seconds. See a demonstration video below:
There’s also the conversation about performing an alignment every time a vehicle is a candidate for a safety system reset, because both functions rely on the car being pointed straight ahead (the thrustline angle). If you’re considering Autel’s ADAS equipment and don’t currently have a Hunter aligner, you may want to consider getting into the alignment business as well. Contact us for more information!
