What is it?
We can calibrate your windshield so that your sensors and cameras operate accurately. Windshield recalibration is a crucial safety measure that vehicle owners should consider to ensure the proper functioning of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and overall road safety.
Vehicles that are equipped with ADAS, include features like lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and collision avoidance systems. These systems heavily rely on cameras and sensors mounted on the windshield to gather real-time data and assist drivers in various driving situations.
Why do it?
Regular windshield repairs or replacements can often disturb the proper alignment of ADAS components, leading to misalignment issues. Even a minor change in the positioning of cameras or sensors can significantly impair the accuracy and functionality of ADAS, compromising the vehicle's safety features. For example, a misaligned forward collision warning system might not activate in time, or a poorly calibrated lane-keeping system might not provide accurate feedback to the driver, potentially leading to dangerous situations on the road.
Getting your windshield re-calibrated by a certified technician ensures that the ADAS components are precisely realigned to the manufacturer's specifications. This process involves using specialized tools and equipment to recalibrate the cameras and sensors, ensuring they function as intended and provide accurate data to the vehicle's safety systems. Not only does this guarantee the optimal performance of ADAS features, but it also enhances the overall safety of the vehicle's occupants and other road users.
In many modern vehicles, recalibrating the windshield is necessary after windshield replacement, collision repair, or if you notice any warning lights related to the ADAS. Ignoring the need for recalibration may result in voiding your vehicle's warranty, and more importantly, it puts you and others at risk on the road.
