What is ADAS Windshield Calibration?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that in 2017 alone, there were 37,133 deaths from motor vehicle collisions. That’s why vehicle safety features are constantly improving and evolving to ensure the safety and protection of drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. ADAS, which is short for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, encompasses a wide range of cutting-edge technologies designed to keep you and your family safe and sound while traveling in your vehicle. With the implementation of these innovative vehicle safety technology systems, the goal is to reduce the risk of crashes, and save thousands of lives each year — but in order to protect people, these systems must function properly.

One type of ADAS is implemented near or on windscreens. ADAS implemented windshield technology combines cameras and sensors to essentially create a safety net that surrounds your entire vehicle, protecting you, your family, and others on the road.

ADAS windscreen features typically include:

  • Forward Collision Alert (FCA)
  • Driver Status Monitoring (DSM)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Pedestrian Detection (PD)
  • Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)
  • Parking Assist (PA)
  • And so much more!

Why ADAS Windscreen Calibration Is Necessary

When your ADAS calibrated windshield is damaged either from a collision, inclement weather, vandalism, or other any other incidents, it can throw off your camera’s precise view of the road and reduce the optimal functionality of the entire system. Even the slightest misalignment can impede the system from working as it should. That’s why it’s not only important — but necessary — to have your ADAS windscreen recalibrated after your windshield has been damaged and then replaced. Having your windshield system recalibrated ensures that each safety component is functioning as it should for a safer ride.

Recalibrating an ADAS windshield camera can correct the following issues:

  • A damaged or disconnected ADAS camera
  • A partially removed camera
  • A faulty camera
  • A shift in the camera’s positioning
  • A change in the settings caused by another type of auto service (e.g., wheel alignment, suspension repair, etc.)

Our ADAS Windscreen Calibration Services

There is, unfortunately, no way to DIY a windshield calibration — but there’s no need to worry when you have the most skilled calibration specialists at West Texas Windshields on your side. Our auto glass technicians are highly trained in windshield calibration and specialize in ensuring your system is functioning at the highest level.

We can perform the calibration at the same time that we replace your windshield. Once we have installed your new windshield, our technicians will recalibrate your windshield according to the type of system you have. A windshield replacement and calibration can take anywhere from one-to-three hours total to complete. Sure, you could take your vehicle to the dealership for the same service, however, their calibrations take a minimum of two weeks to complete, and who has time for that? Even though our calibrations take less time to complete, you can rest assured that we perform the service with the utmost care, precision, efficiency, and keen attention to detail.
