ADAS Systems Categories

There are 4 ADAS System Categories:

Adaptive Systems: Systems that will change and adapt to the surroundings of the vehicle.

Automated Systems: Systems that will override manual operation and provide corrections that a driver cannot safely provide.

Monitoring Systems: Sensors and cameras that constantly monitor the surroundings of the vehicle to evaluate if a correction is needed.

Warning Systems: Alert drivers to potential safety issues of the driver’s making or from those vehicles that are around.

Auto Windshield ADAS Calibration Services

ADAS components are typically mounted to the inside of the windshield (some mount to the interior roof of the vehicle and others vary in location) and operate by seeing through the windshield at obstacles or lane dotted lines in front of the vehicle while in motion.

Does Your Windshield Require Calibration?

Replacing the windshield on vehicles equipped with any ADAS system will compromise accuracy and safety unless it is calibrated. If the cameras/radars/lidars on the vehicle are off by even a few millimeters, ADAS warnings signals may not be accurate. This would compromise the driver’s and public safety unless it is properly calibrated.
