Led by Frank Terlep, Auto Techcelerators is the recipient of a recent U.S. patent for ADAS test drive verifications
Detroit—Opus IVS has announced the completion of the acquisition of Auto Techcelerators, which produces the ADAS CoPilot, Calibration CoPilot and Test Drive CoPilot product suites that address ADAS identification, calibration and ADAS safety system verification.
The newly acquired company is led by Frank Terlep. Auto Techcelerators is the recipient of a recent U.S. patent for ADAS test drive verifications, and he said his organization is fulfilling its mission of changing the way calibrations, diagnostics and test drives are performed, managed and documented.
“The trifecta of CoPilot offerings is growing fast and combining with Opus IVS gives us the scale necessary to serve our customers better. We couldn’t have asked for a better partnership to carry out our vision,” said Terlep.
Brian Herron, CEO of Opus IVS, added, “Frank has distilled 40 years of industry knowledge into a high value software suite that is seeing rapid adoption in the ADAS services and calibration industry. We congratulate him on his rapid growth and welcome the entire Auto Techcelerators team to the Opus IVS family,” said.
While Opus IVS will continue to offer Auto Techcelerator’s products to the market, it also plans to merge multiple Opus IVS products with the CoPilot suite to deliver the industry’s most complete and integrated end-to-end ADAS, calibration and validation solution.
Auto Techcelerators has been named a finalist in the SEMA Launchpad, the ultimate product pitching contest for entrepreneurs.
ADAS CoPilot is the industry’s only mobile app and web-based ADAS and calibration knowledge, information and repair procedure platform.
Calibration CoPilot is specifically designed for “hub and spoke” ADAS service and calibration centers to help them operate a profitable and paperless business through features such as integrated scheduling, automated invoicing and visual dispatching.
Test Drive CoPilot performs, documents and validates that a vehicle’s ADAS systems operate as designed after the vehicle is altered, repaired, aligned or calibrated.
