ADAS Calibration... What is it?

Updated: Oct 10, 2023

ADAS Calibration – Advanced Driver Assist Systems is probably something that you’re not too familiar with, or even aware of.

The ADAS System controls all the automatic systems in your car, like cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and impact warnings. Sensors in your car are what makes ADAS work, so if they're damaged or misaligned, you'll need an ADAS Calibration. These sensors can stop working pretty quickly!

Drivers that have recently had their windshield replaced should be aware of the possibility that they will need to have their vehicle’s camera recalibrated. If you don't get this fixed ASAP, your cameras won't be able to accurately read your surroundings, putting you in danger.

One of the major purposes of ADAS Calibration is to minimize or prevent the negative impacts of tragic events such as collisions. The system does this through a series of audio and visual alerts. There can be many ADAS features installed in a car, but the most common ones include:

- Lane Departure Warning

- Collision Warning

- Blind-spot Monitoring

- Headlight Control

- Pedestrian Protection

- Automatic Cruise Control

- Park Assist

...and many others.

When you are in close danger, in order to take the necessary action (i.e. - stop the car), you’ll need to be forewarned. But if the ADAS isn’t working correctly, the signals and alerts can be delayed which means you might not be able to stop the vehicle on time. So it is very important to calibrate a windshield.

You as the driver aren’t the only one at risk here. Other drivers or your passengers can also be in danger if your ADAS isn’t working the way it should.
