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. If a car’s ADAS is not properly calibrated, the system may not function safely. A misaligned camera could jeopardize the functionality of the system and lead to dangerous driving or accidents, so it is crucial that the cameras are aligned perfectly, which is what windshield calibration ensures.

Calibration service for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is of utmost importance in ensuring the safety and effectiveness of these sophisticated automotive technologies. ADAS features like lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and collision avoidance systems rely on accurate sensor data and precise calibration to function properly. Calibration ensures that the cameras, radars, and sensors are correctly aligned and calibrated to accurately detect and interpret the surrounding environment. Proper calibration guarantees that ADAS functions operate as intended, promoting safer driving conditions by providing accurate warnings and assisting drivers in potential collision scenarios. Regular ADAS calibration not only enhances safety but also helps maintain optimal performance and reliability of these critical systems. Trusting certified professionals for ADAS calibration is crucial to ensure accurate and reliable operation of these advanced safety features in your vehicle.

Why ADAS Calibration Is Important

If you’ve ever been in a car accident and your windshield took most of the energy from the impact, you might be familiar with windshield replacements. When you get your back with the new windshield, everything might seem okay on the surface, but it’s not until you see the ADAS systems in action that you truly know the replacement was successful. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are part of the windshIeld and include safety features like Blind Spot Monitor, Collision Warning System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Advance Traffic Alert Systems. And since ADAS is to be found in almost 40 percent of all vehicles on the roads, as predicted by the auto repair industry, it’s time auto repair companies start training their crew on ADAS calibration.

Why Is Post-Repair ADAS Calibration Important?

Depending on the intensity of an accident, many components of the car might be replaced or repaired including the windows, windshield, side mirrors, back mirrors, rear screen, headlights, taillights, and even the indicator lights. But most repair shops forgo the most important part of car repairs; ADAS calibration. Auto glass and windshield repair shops must have the right equipment, tools, advanced technology to be able to calibrate the electronic systems post repairs.

Alignment Affects Accuracy

Even the smallest misalignments in the camera, radar system, or ultra sound system can have a huge impact on the performance and accuracy of ADAS. Auto repair technicians must do their homework on the impacts of certain repairs on other advanced electronic systems of the car. Repair Procedures Must Be Based on Guidelines Provided by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to ensure the accuracy and safety of repairs, OEMprovided guidelines should be followed.

The original equipment manufacturer will always have the most legitimate knowledge of each advance driver’s assistance system in the car. This is particularly important when dealing with advanced protection systems such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), airbags, and antilock brakes. Proper functioning of the ADAS as intended by OEMs is critical to the safety of drivers, passengers, and other drivers on the road.
