ADAS Calibration

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are electronic systems in vehicles that use advanced technologies to assist the driver.

What is ADAS Calibration?

Some advanced vehicles with ‘lane departure’ or ‘lane-keep assist will have a camera on their front and rear windshields. This camera needs to be calibrated to realign the accuracy of the windscreen with the lanes on the road. This re-alignment is called ADAS Calibration.

Why does your windscreen need calibration?

An uncalibrated windshield may result in fatal injuries at the worst. When a sensor on the windscreen is not calibrated correctly, it can be even more dangerous. A failure to calibrate a sensor when necessary can result in erroneous information that will cause ADAS to operate improperly, resulting in a possible crash.

Results of Erroneous calibration

 An uncalibrated windshield might show the following error messages.

  • A warning light 
  • Error message on the instrument panel
  • A diagnostic trouble code
  • Steering wheel vibration
  • Vehicle steering pull
  • Increased effort while steering

Obstacles like these can prompt a driver to lose trust in a car’s capacity to provide safe transportation.

ADAS will automatically avoid collisions with other cars when they sense an obstruction ahead or if lane markings are crossed without signaling-even reversing for up to one car length when necessary so there is no chance of collision. Sensors along roads also help detect any lights that signal upcoming traffic signs as well as hazards such as pedestrians crossing intersections at night and even blind spots which can be dangerous during rush hour traffic. The core functions of ADAS comprise lane leaving warning, adaptive tour control, independent emergency braking, adaptive headlights rearview cameras, forward collision warnings, driver tiredness detection, light control, automatic parking, automatic braking, night vision, traffic sign recognition, lane change assistance, blind-spot monitoring, turning assistant, and more.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive without any power steering?
Your vehicle has many safety features that make driving safer. One of these is the automatic driver assistance system or ADAS for short. This sophisticated technology helps your car’s sensors monitor and alert drivers about upcoming obstacles on a road or in their blind spot so they can take evasive action if necessary. However, sometimes new windshield installation could potentially shift how some of its cameras and sensors are aligned with each other- thus resulting in misalignment issues when installed as well as being unable to calibrate properly! Premiere Auto Glass will come out (or send someone) who knows just how to fix such problems swiftly by recalibrating them correctly using.
Why wait to recalibrate your ADAS after a windshield replacement?
Trust the professionals at our dealership for seamless work and superior service. You may not even be aware of it, but if you replace your vehicle’s windshield or another window with one that is different than what was originally on there then we recommend having someone calibrate the sensors in order to ensure they are functioning properly according to their original factory specifications.
Premiere Auto Glass has trained technicians who can handle most vehicles’ recalibration needs right here at our lot so just give us a call!
