Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
At Autoglass®, keeping our customers safe on the road is our top priority.
As technology is becoming more advanced, we are seeing more vehicles built with intelligent systems to help assist motorists on the road. Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, or ADAS, is a term used to collectively describe these smart features.
ADAS includes simple applications such as rear view cameras to aid parking to more complicated systems like Lane Departure Warning (LDW) that can detect a vehicle's surroundings. There are also more advanced systems that can actually take some control of the vehicle, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).
What is ADAS?
Whether your car has adaptive high beams, a collision detection system or autonomous night vision, these are all classed as Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems.
Why is an ADAS calibration required?
ADAS systems rely on a combination of cameras and sensors to work as intended.
With a windscreen replacement, some of these cameras can get knocked out of place. This could have a significant impact on the functionality of an ADAS feature, which could be the difference between avoiding an accident or not.
That's why we strongly recommend getting an ADAS calibration after a replacement windscreen to make sure that a vehicle's ADAS technology is working correctly when it's back on the road.
Your ADAS calibration appointment
If your car is fitted with ADAS technology, it may require a recalibration following a windscreen replacement. But don't worry, we'll let you know when you book with us. One of our fully-trained technicians will then perform the calibration during your appointment.
At Autoglass®, we are the ADAS calibration specialists, with the expert knowledge and tools to complete a calibration to the manufacturer's required standard.
