Advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) Calibration

Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, also called ADAS, help keep us safe on the road. They help us park, change lanes, detect objects in the road, and overall make us more confident drivers.

If you have recently had a collision or your windshield replaced, your advanced driver assistance system ( ADAS) components need to be calibrated to the exact OEM specifications. Even when the safety component isn’t directly involved in the collision, a calibration may still be required during the repair process due to the sensitivity of the ADAS components involved. Even one degree could cause a sensor or camera to miss an object by many feet, depending on the distance of the object.

Advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) Calibration What is ADAS?

Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, or ADAS, enable a vehicle to react to its surroundings and warn the driver of potential hazards. For years, vehicles have become enhanced with important safety equipment such as sensors and/or cameras to aid drivers in reducing accidents like rear/front camera systems, lane-assist or blind spot monitoring. 

If you have a vehicle that is five years old you probably have some form of ADAS on it, if you have a newer vehicle then you probably have many ADAS safety systems on board. Advanced Drivers Assistance Systems  have proven to be lifesaving devices and are continuing to be adapted by all manufacturers. ADAS can be very complicated and extremely difficult to diagnose and repair without very accurate equipment, specifically trained technicians access to OEM Software and a specifically built to Manufacturers standards calibration building.

Adaptive cruise control

ADAS Calibration after CollisionADAS Calibration after Wheel Alignment

After Any Collision
This is a REQUIREMENT and not a recommendation, if your insurance company refuses to re calibrate your vehicle, please let us call your adjuster for you. Many times the insurance companies don't understand which procedures are required.

After Windshield Replacement
For safety and peace of mind, you should always have your windshield re-calibrated after every windshield repair and replacement.

360 Around View Cameras
If your 360 cameras are out of sync your images will not line up on screen with seamless clarity. Your backup sensors and trailer towing sensors will not be synchronized. This is especially true on trucks and vans. 

After Bumper Repair/ Replacement
Even the slightest hit on bumper cover may alter your radar or thermal sensors. The most troubling are the Collision Avoidance and Adaptive Cruise Control Systems.

After Wheel Alignment
Most Manufactures recommend recalibration after a 4 wheel alignment is performed. The centerline on the vehicle known as the Thrust Angle is what all the ADAS sensors are calibrated to.

Increasing numbers of new cars are equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Some of the more common ones include:
Forward collision warning
Automatic emergency braking
Adaptive cruise control
Lane departure warning
Lane keeping assist
Lane Watch Camera
Blind spot monitoring
Rear cross traffic alert
Parking assist/self-parking
Adaptive headlights that steer with the vehicle
Automatic headlight high-beam activation and dimming

When our experts repair your vehicle, the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) need to be calibrated to the original manufacturer specifications to ensure they are operating properly. To calibrate ADAS to OE specifications, certain years, makes, and models require proper weight distribution, including having a full tank of fuel. If your vehicle and repair require additional fuel to be added, you will be responsible for the added cost.
