Advanced driver – assistance systems (ADAS)
WINDSHIELD CAMERA Recalibration
After the windshield is replaced if your vehicle is equipped with Lane departure, forward collision alert, or adaptive cruise control, (ADAS features), the camera in your windshield must be recalibrated.
What is ADAS?
ADAS stands for Advanced Driver Assistance System. It is a rapidly growing new technology that includes systems to help the driver in the driving process. When designed with a safe human-machine interface they should increase car safety & more generally, road safety
What is Calibration?
Calibration is the process of returning a vehicle’s ADAS to OEM specifications
Calibration is necessary after a new glass installation, particularly a windshield with a camera mounted to it, to ensure that the ADAS features continue to function properly despite having been moved during installation
A vehicle’s computer relies on the cameras/radars/lasers used by the ADAS being in the correct alignment to function properly, but does not automatically adjust them itself
Why do we need to be able to perform calibration?
Calibration guides the vehicle’s computer & ensures these systems are working properly
When a windshield is replaced, the camera should be removed from the bracket & unplugged from the car. After the replacement is completed, the camera needs to be reattached & recalibrated. If this is not performed by the installer, consumers will have to go to the dealer to have the vehicle calibrated.
What will happen if vehicle is not calibrated
If a car’s ADAS is not properly calibrated, the system may not function safely
If the cameras/radars/lasers on the vehicle are off by even a few millimeters they may not give accurate readings and the system may not function properly.
