What is ADAS windscreen calibration?
ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance System is the collective term for the enhanced features and technology integrated into many modern vehicles, that aid and increase driver and vehicle safety.
ADAS Calibration falls under two categories:
At PG Glass we are equipped to cater for the calibration of any Dynamic or Static Advanced Driver Assistance System on any make or model of car.
This applies to dynamic ADAS and calibration is carried out with the use of a hand-held device plugged directly into the car. In most cases, the vehicle will then need to be driven at a prescribed speed over a certain distance in optimum weather conditions, to allow the system to become accustomed to certain road features. Often the vehicle manufacturer will stipulate specific parameters for calibration of their dynamic ADAS.
This applies to static ADAS and calibration is carried out in a workshop environment on a level surface. This form of calibration requires specialist equipment like the CSC (Camera and Sensor Calibration) Tool. Each car manufacturer requires different calibration settings for their Static ADAS.
Don’t place yourself at risk
If the camera or sensors are out by even a few millimetres, it can mean the difference between a vehicle avoiding a collision or not.
