During the OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit at the 2016 SEMA Show, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) led several sessions with a focus on emerging trends in vehicle technology. This is the first of two videos that captured the discussion on Restoring Vehicle Functionality through Electronic Technology and Diagnostics.

This video features representatives from leading automakers who discussed how functionality advancements to meet consumer expectations for safety, convenience and luxury options have led to repair procedures and positioning relative to the diagnosis of accident and repair related failures in the systems. Watch here as Moderator John Ellis (Ellis & Associates) navigates the panelists through a candid and unscripted discussion to explore the responsibilities expected of the collision repair providers.

For training on this topic, I-CAR has released the Introduction to Diagnostics and Scan Tools (VT210E01).
