What is ADAS?
Many modern vehicles are built with these intelligent systems to help assist motorists on the road. Adaptive high beams, collision detection system or autonomous night vision, these are all classed as Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems. Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, or ADAS, is a term used to collectively describe these smart features. ADAS includes simple applications such as rear view cameras to aid parking to more complicated systems like Lane Departure Warning (LDW) that can detect a vehicle’s surroundings. There are also more advanced systems that can actually take some control of the vehicle, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).
Why does it need calibrating?
ADAS systems rely on a combination of cameras and sensors to work as intended. Following any kind of collision, either major accident or even a minor kerb bump, or windscreen replacement, some of these cameras can get knocked out of place and this could have a significant impact on the functionality of an ADAS feature, which could be the difference between avoiding an accident or not.
In order to ensure your vehicle’s ADAS technology is working correctly when it’s back on the road, we strongly recommend getting an ADAS calibration after a any of the following events:
- Major/minor collision, Tracking reset.
- Kerb impact , Major suspension repairs.
- Replacement windscreen, ADAS Component replacement.
Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems or ADAS, are a family of safety systems designed to work together to automate and enhance vehicle safety. Each system alerts the driver to potential problems and helps avoid collisions.
If you are unsure whether your vehicles has ADAS features that require calibration, our ADAS qualified engineer, Arthur Seaton , will be able to advise you. Give him a call on 01509235857
