The Importance of Advanced Drivers Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Advanced Drivers Assistance System are safety technology installed in your vehicle that work together to help reduce auto collisions and injuries.

How Do Advanced Drivers Assistance Systems Affect the Windshield?

With ADAS, front-facing cameras are typically installed on the upper, inner surface of the windshield or attached to the headliner and they must be recalibrated after a windshield replacement.  If these cameras are not calibrated properly after a windshield repair or replacement the ADAS will not work properly and will give inaccurate information to the driver.

What is ADAS Recalibraton?

After the windshield has been replaced, the ADAS cameras are reinstalled in/on the vehicle and in order for them to work properly, they need to be recalibrated.

  • Static Recalibration – A target image is mounted in front of the vehicle to assist with the recalibration process and takes roughly 45-minutes
  • Dynamic Recalibration – The vehicle is driven on a road at a specific speed to recalibrate the systems and typically takes 30-minutes to one hour.

Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, both types of recalibration might be necessary.
