What is ADAS calibration?
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration is the precise alignment and testing of ADAS sensors to ensure that they are operating correctly. ADAS systems use a variety of sensors, including cameras, radar, and lidar, to monitor the vehicle's surroundings and to identify potential hazards. ADAS systems can then warn the driver of potential hazards or take corrective action, such as braking or steering the vehicle.
When is ADAS calibration required?
ADAS calibration is required in a number of situations, including:
- After a windshield replacement: The windshield is a critical component of many ADAS systems, so it is important to calibrate the ADAS systems after a windshield replacement.
- After a collision: A collision can damage the ADAS sensors or disrupt their alignment, so it is important to calibrate the ADAS systems after a collision.
- After suspension or alignment work: Suspension or alignment work can affect the position of the wheel geometry, so it is important to calibrate the ADAS systems after this type of work.
- At regular intervals: ADAS systems should be calibrated regularly to ensure that they are operating correctly. The manufacturer of your vehicle will provide specific recommendations for how often ADAS calibration is required.
Benefits of ADAS calibration
ADAS calibration provides a number of benefits, including:
- Improved safety: ADAS systems can help drivers to avoid collisions by warning them of potential hazards or by taking corrective action. However, only properly calibrated ADAS systems will operate correctly.
- Reduced stress: ADAS systems can help to reduce driver stress by taking over some of the tasks of driving, such as lane keeping and adaptive cruise control. However, only properly calibrated ADAS systems will be able to perform these tasks effectively.
