While ADAS technology can lead to a drastic decline in collisions, your collision shop will still service vehicles that have been in a crash. The most advanced systems that are currently in the market are Level Two vehicles (driver assist vehicles): they help drivers, but are not completely autonomous. In Level Two vehicles, the driver needs to remain engaged with the driving task. Some of these vehicles are on the road today and require a firm understanding of the vehicle's capabilities and responsibilities of engagement from the consumer.
