Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive about Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) Windshield Camera Calibration.

ADAS stands for Advanced Driver Assistance System. It is a rapidly growing new technology that includes systems to help the driver in the driving process. When designed with a safe human-machine interface they should increase car safety & more generally, road safety.

Calibration is the process of returning a vehicle’s ADAS to OEM specifications.

Calibration is necessary after a new glass installation, particularly a windshield with a camera mounted to it, to ensure that the ADAS features continue to function properly despite having been moved during installation.

A vehicle’s computer relies on the cameras/radars/lasers used by the ADAS being in the correct alignment to function properly, but does not automatically adjust them itself.

If your vehicle is equipped with an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) windshield camera, laser, or radar system then all manufactures recommend a calibration after the windshield is replaced. This ensures that the system keeps functioning as intended.

Calibration guides the vehicle’s computer & ensures these systems are working properly.

When a windshield is replaced, the camera should be removed from the bracket & unplugged from the car. After the replacement is completed, the camera needs to be reattached & recalibrated. If this is not performed by the installer, consumers will have to go to the dealer to have the vehicle calibrated.

If your vehicle has an ADAS windshield camera and the windshield is replaced without proper calibration then functions like Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Alert, or Pedestrian Detection may fail to work. In order to keep these working properly a calibration should be performed per manufacturer specifications.
