ADAS Recalibration

Recalibration is the process of realigning cameras and sensors, usually attached to windscreens, which input information and ultimately control a vehicle’s ADAS features.

What does ADAS mean?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are designed to improve driver comfort and convenience, whilst also making driving safer by helping to reduce collisions. They include automated, adaptive and enhanced vehicle technologies.

Examples of ADAS:
• adaptive cruise control
• lane departure warnings
• automated lighting.

ADAS function from multiple data sources, including Radar, LIDAR, Forward Facing Camera and Ultrasonic.

Why is ADAS recalibration needed after a windscreen replacement?

Recalibration is the process of realigning cameras and sensors, usually attached to windscreens, which input information and ultimately control a vehicle’s ADAS features.

Technicians have to disconnect the cameras and sensors when replacing a windscreen. Upon reconnection, the integrity of ADAS may be compromised. Recalibration is needed to return vehicle back to manufacturer specification, restoring all systems to the exact position and condition they were in originally, pre-windscreen replacement.
