When And Why Do I need To Get My Windshield Calibrated?

To fully understand why and when your vehicle needs a windshield calibration, automobile owners must first understand what Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are. Referred to as ADAS for sort, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are becoming increasingly common in modern day cars and for that reason, automobile owners are often uninformed in regard to any maintenance that is required to keep the system running properly. Now, a windshield calibration may seem like it is completely unrelated, although this is far from the truth. ADAS take advantage of radar, lidar, cameras, sensors, and many other devices in order to help generate a driving experience that is safer for those in the car. Although, to accurately obtain all of the information the Advanced Driver Assistance System of an automobile must be properly calibrated, especially after a windshield replacement.

Windshield Calibration: When And Why

Even the slightest misalignment in the calibration of an automobile’s ADAS could lead to disastrous results. The reason for this is because of the massive amount of information that the system not only takes in but then has to relay to automated systems within the car to warn them of any potential hazards. Some of these automated systems include things like Automotive night vision, Driver drowsiness detection, Driver monitoring system, Emergency driver assistant, Blind spot monitor, Collision avoidance system, Crosswind stabilization, Forward collision warning, Intersection assistant, Hill descent control, and much more. Following a windshield replacement is also not the only time in which your vehicle may require calibration as it is generally recommended following a change in suspension or alignment, if the dashboard shows a faulty code, and if the camera has been disconnected.
