Glazity Auto is offering ADAS calibration, screenings and inspections for all vehicles containing an ADAS camera system. We pride ourselves in having the technology and knowledge to provide the safest ADAS calibration services. On modern vehicles model years 2016 and newer, ADAS has become a safety standard and will continue to proliferate across the automotive industry. If your windscreen is replaced or if the camera is disturbed, the ADAS camera system is required to be calibrated.
What is ADAS?
ADAS stands for “Advanced Driver(s) Assistance Systems”. These systems rely upon cameras, lasers, and radar – often with the camera mounting to the windshield. Any time a new windshield is installed, the camera must be calibrated to ensure proper functionality and to restore the camera to OEM specifications.
Examples of ADAS applications are:
- Lane Departure Warning
- Collision Warning
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Park Assist
- Automatic Cruise Control
- Pedestrian Protection
- Headlights Control
What is Calibration?
Calibration is the process of returning a vehicle’s ADAS to OEM specifications. Calibration is necessary after a windscreen replacement, particularly a windscreen with a camera mounted to it, to ensure that the ADAS features continue to function properly despite having been moved during installation.
What will happen if 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 millimetres they may not give accurate readings and the system may not function properly.
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 ADAS Calibration ensures.
