Safety Recalibration (ADAS)

Have you ever wondered about the camera integrated into your windshield? That forward-facing camera is a crucial component of your vehicle's advanced safety systems, often referred to as Advanced Driver Assistance Safety Systems (ADAS). These cutting-edge systems are meticulously engineered to enhance both your safety and the safety of your vehicle while navigating the roads. Our ADAS services are covered by our special lifetime warranty.

What is ADAS?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are cutting-edge automotive technologies that use sensors, cameras, and radar to provide enhanced safety and convenience features. However, for these systems to function properly, their components must be precisely calibrated.

ADAS service involves inspecting, diagnosing, and recalibrating a vehicle's ADAS components after a collision or windshield replacement. Even minor impacts can cause misalignment of radar, cameras, and sensors - rendering ADAS features like automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control inoperable or unreliable.

The ADAS calibration process utilizes specialized diagnostic software connected to the vehicle, along with tools like laser calibration rigs, radar reflectors, and camera targets. Technicians follow precise OEM procedures to ensure each sensor is properly aimed and aligned to the vehicle's specifications. Improper calibration can lead to dangerous false activations or a complete failure to detect hazards.

Some common ADAS components that require calibration include:

  • Forward-facing cameras/sensors for automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, etc.
  • Side radar sensors for blind spot monitoring and cross-traffic alerts
  • Rear cameras/sensors for backup assistance and rear automatic braking
  • Steering angle sensors for lane keeping systems

After any windshield replacement involving lane departure warning, heads-up display, or rain-sensing systems, a windshield sensor calibration is necessary to re-sync the operation of these windshield-mounted components.

Proper ADAS calibration is critical for the safe operation of these advanced safety systems. Most automakers require ADAS calibration any time repairs are made or if systems experience a fault. Routine service can help ensure your vehicle's ADAS suite is operating at its full life-saving potential.

The AAA Difference

At AAA Glass, we understand the importance of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) recalibration to ensure optimal vehicle safety and functionality. Here's what you need to know about our Safety Recalibration service:

  • Essential Calibration: ADAS systems rely on inputs from various sensors like cameras, radar, and ultrasonic sensors to enhance safety features such as automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.
  • Calibration Necessity: Calibration may be required during common car services like windshield replacement to ensure accurate data acquisition by sensors. The use of OEM approved glass is crucial to maintain sensor accuracy and vehicle safety.
  • Cost Consideration: Repair costs associated with ADAS systems can increase significantly post-crash due to the high cost of replacing and calibrating sensors. For instance, the cost of windshield glass replacement attributable to ADAS components can average 25.4% of the total repair cost.
  • Professional Calibration: Proper ADAS repair necessitates competent and accurate calibration performed by professionally trained technicians at reputable repair facilities. AAA Auto Glass repair facilities ensure high-quality standards for ADAS sensor calibration.
  • Quality Assurance: After windshield installation, it is essential to inspect the work for proper alignment and centering. Any issues like air leaks or misalignments should be promptly addressed by the installer to ensure optimal functionality.
