Macomb Community College was awarded a $35,000 grant from the Margaret Dunning Foundation to purchase advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) service and calibration equipment. It will help expand the experience of Macomb’s automotive technology students with connected and automated vehicles.
The ADAS service and calibration equipment is used to diagnose and repair ADAS systems such as blind spot detection, cross traffic alerts and adaptive cruise control. Macomb students studying automotive technology will use the ADAS service and calibration equipment to learn how these systems work, how to diagnose issues, how to conduct repairs and calibrate sensors.
“This new equipment enables us to provide our automotive students with a state-of-the-art education in ADAS systems, making them better prepared for the workplace,” said Ben Cruz, director, Center for Advanced Automotive Technology, Macomb Community College. “As the automotive industry continues the shift to connected and automated vehicles, ADAS-enabled vehicles are more and more
