Over the last few years, there has been an increase by auto manufacturers incorporating ADAS technology with their vehicles’ windshields. ADAS, which is short for advanced driver assistance system, plays a vital role in aiding drivers. It works by using a camera to monitor hazards, behavior, and dangerous situations. If such a situation is detected, an alert will notify the driver or in some cases, subtle actions may be taken by the vehicle itself.
This technology while extremely valuable also comes with increased costs. If your windshield is damaged, it’s not enough to just replace it. The ADAS camera must be recalibrated to ensure that it is working properly. Failure to do so may make situations worse. It is important that recalibration occurs during the replacement process to avoid unnecessary risks.
At Advantage Auto Glass, our customers have come to depend on us to perform a recalibration at the time of their windshield installation or replacement. Our technicians have been trained to adhere to the strict guidelines set forth by automakers regarding ADAS recalibration. It is our goal to provide the best service possible at competitive prices.
ADAS helps to:
- Detect potential collisions
- Initiate emergency braking
- Warn of lane departure
- Recognize pedestrians in travel path
- Recognize important traffic signs and signals
- And much more..
Just because this technology makes windshield replacement more complex doesn’t mean that you need to stress over it. We’re happy to answer any questions about your ADAS and our process. Don’t let anyone tell you that recalibration is unnecessary during a windshield installation. Your safety may just depend on it.
