5 starter workshops

From zero ADAS to 100% autonomous

Understanding the different driving grades of a vehicle (without assistance / fully autonomous); how mobility is changing.

The aim is to drive a car using a virtual reality headset and screens, on a city road and on the open road. The different scenarios range from a vehicle with no ADAS to a fully automated vehicle. 

Visitors will be able to see what the “player” does.

Lenght: 5 to 10 minutes

ADAS: impact on skills in the workshop  

Introduction to sensors and focus on workshop cameras (how to adjust them, their limitations, etc.).

Lenght: 15 minutes

Connected vehicles from all angles  

Presentation of a connected light or heavy duty vehicle from all angles (terminal, SIM card, etc...) A 3D animation presents the connected vehicle and the services that can be associated with it. Two versions can be displayed alternately: light vehicle and heavy duty vehicle.

Lenght: 4 to 5 minutes

Paint application, a professional technique

Learning all about paint application techniques and gauging how to manipulate the paint gun (load, distance, etc.) 

360 Diagnostics: bodywork and paint

With the help of a tablet scanning a visual element on the wall, watch a video on the tablet and answer the questions on the four themes. The training consultant in attendance will go over and explain the right answers to the players.
