The latest technology in automatic car washes is here and it’s one that bats have been using for centuries. Sonar technology is being used a car wash in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to make sure that the automatic technology doesn’t accidentally scuff or nick luxury vehicles that come through. The Lehigh Valley Business publication reported that the car wash Saucon Valley Auto Spa upgraded its touchless system for the new technology.
The car wash’s site describes the technology this way: The Virtual Attendant® automatically compensates for wide mirrors, tail hitches, and the like as it effectively maneuvers around your vehicle. Using an innovative positioning system and sophisticated software, your vehicle is accurately measured by the VS2® Positioning System. This is important because your car needs to fit. Mirror size and positioning; wheel-base and roof height; roof and bike racks are all factors that affect the efficiency of those other ‘one-size-fits-all car washes.’ At Saucon Valley Auto Spa your selected car wash will fit your vehicle.
