ADAS Calibration

What is ADAS?

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are systems developed to;

  • Automate/adapt/enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving.
  • Have Safety features which are designed to avoid collisions and accidents by offering;
    • technologies that alert the driver to potential problems;
    • or to avoid collisions by implementing safeguards and taking over control of the vehicle.

They also help the driver in the driving process. When designed with safe human-machine interface, it should increase not only car safety but also road safety in general.

What does this mean when I replace my windscreen?

Most ADAS technologies rely on sensors and cameras mounted inside the windscreen as this is the highest forward facing point on the vehicle.

After a windscreen replacement, re-calibration of ADAS will be recommended. As little a 1degree misalignment (only detectable by specialized equipment) could result in the system miscalculating braking distances with catastrophic consequences.

This all means that based on the vehicle and manufacturer either a dynamic (also known as mobile) or static calibration could be required.

Dedicated to Safety and Providing You with the Highest Quality Re-Calibration

At Instant Windscreens & Tinting we have recognised that ADAS is a way of the future to make your driving experience safer and easier. As such we have invested in our own calibration machines. We wanted to provide a service where a customer can bring their car in to have a windscreen changed and then have the ADAS re-calibrated, making it a one stop/shop service.

Instant Windscreens is the first automotive glass repair and replacement company to have multiple machines located around Australia. Our investment has not only been in the machine but also in qualified trained staff. Our commitment to ensure that our staff had the correct skill levels in operating the machines meant that we sent our staff to Europe to obtain international standard qualifications to operate the machines.

In Addition to having qualified staff, Instant Windscreens has invested in mobile handheld diagnostic tools that can determine any faults prior to or after working on a vehicle. This technology will eliminate any questionable claims of existing faults prior to work starting, but will also provide comfort that all systems are fully functional after the completion of the work. This is just part of the Instant Windscreens total commitment to providing a quality service which is safe and provide the best information to the customer.

Do I need to Calibrate my Screen at Other Times?

Day to day use of your vehicle and other events may impact upon camera calibration. Keep you and your vehicle safe by having your vehicle re-calibrated once a year. Give the Instant Windscreens team a call and we can book you in for calibration today.

Note: Always check your vehicle user manual about recommendations for regular servicing and other factors which may impact use of ADAS functionality as incidents affecting suspension, wheel alignment and tyres could also impact on the reliability of the ADAS technology.
