Advanced Driver Assistance System Recalibration: Why Your Vehicle Requires It
The latest vehicles are fitted with ADAS systems to increase vehicle and driver safety. The main functions of ADAS include lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive head lights, adaptive light control, automatic parking, automatic braking systems, automotive night vision, traffic sign recognition, lane change assistance, blind spot monitoring, rear view cameras, turning assistant, forward collision warnings, driver drowsiness detection and more.
When your vehicle’s windshield is replaced, some of the cameras and sensors of ADAS may become misaligned. Therefore, your vehicle’s ADAS must be recalibrated to function accurately.
If your vehicle has any of the following features, it may need to be recalibrated:
Lane Departure Warning
This feature detects the lane lines and then warns the driver if the vehicle begins to move out of its lane.
Lane Keep Assist
This feature functions like Lane Departure Warning but will reactively steer the vehicle back into the lane if it notices the vehicle leaving. Some systems will proactively try to keep the vehicle in the center of the lane; this feature is known as Lane Centering Assist.
Forward Collision Alert/Forward Collision Warning
This feature determines the speed of the vehicle and the distance to a moving or stationary object in front. If the system determines that a collision is imminent if the vehicle does not slow down, it will warn the driver.
Active Brake Assist
This feature is a type of Autonomous Emergency Braking system. It functions like the Forward Collision Alert but will also automatically engage the breaks if needed.
High Beam Assist/High Beam Sensor
This feature detects the light of oncoming vehicles and will automatically switch from high beam to low beam while passing vehicles going in the opposite direction or while closing in on vehicles going in the same direction.
Auto Headlamp Control
This feature automatically adjusts the strength and direction of the light depending on vehicle speed and driving conditions.
Traffic Sign Recognition
This feature allows your vehicle to recognize traffic signs, such as signs for speed limits, or stop signs. This helps the driver be aware of information that may otherwise have been missed.
