Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Why would ADAS calibration be required?

These are a group of systems and features used in many vehicles that help the driver and improve safety. They are designed to identify problems ahead of time and have the potential to even prevent accidents.

ADAS includes:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Adaptive headlights
  • Autonomous emergency braking
  • Blind spot awareness
  • Lane departure warning
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Collision detection system
  • Autonomous night vision

The ADAS systems make use of a series of laser sensors and cameras in order to detect the vehicle's surroundings. If any of these are out of place, the system will be unable to work efficiently.

For example, if a windscreen has been replaced recently, the cameras may have been moved out of alignment. This could potentially make the difference between whether or not an accident takes place. Therefore, it is strongly recommended having a re-calibration after the windscreen is replaced to ensure the technology is still working effectively.
