Accident Repair ADAS Calibration & Testing

What is ADAS sensor calibration?

ADAS sensor calibration is required whenever a sensor's aiming is disturbed in any way. This can occur in a collision, even a minor fender bender, or be a byproduct of common service work such as windshield replacement, suspension repairs or wheel alignment.

What does ADAS stand for?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, are a family of safety systems that designed to work together to automate and enhance vehicle safety by alerting the driver to potential problems and avoid collisions.

ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems is a collective term for the various technological enhancements present in many modern vehicles. These technologies aim to enhance and improve both driver and vehicle safety. Often Advanced Driver Assistance Systems can be found as part of modern windscreens.

Do I need ADAS recalibration?

Yes, you should always have your ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) re-calibrated after replacing your windshield. In addition to re-calibrating after a windshield replacement, ADAS systems should be re-calibrated after a fault code, a disconnect, or a change of suspension or wheel alignment.

Your car will be fitted with ADAS if it has any of the following features:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control.
  • LED Matrix Headlights.
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking.
  • Blind Spot Awareness.
  • Lane Change Assist.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition.

In order to ensure your vehicle’s ADAS technology is working correctly, we strongly recommend getting an ADAS calibration after any of the following events:

  • Tracking/wheel alignment
  • Windscreen replacement
  • Suspension component replacement
  • Heavy wheel Kerb damage
  • Collision damage

Types of ADAS

Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems or ADAS, are a family of safety systems designed to work together to automate and enhance vehicle safety. Each system either alerts the driver to potential hazards, aids vision on the road ahead or can even step in to apply semi-autonomous emergency braking or steering.

The standard form of ADAS, often found fitted as standard to models such as the Golf Mk7, consists of a radar device located in the centre of the lower front grille. More sophisticated setups also employ a camera to read the road’s white lines in a system called Lane Keeping Assist or adjust headlamps so as not to dazzle oncoming traffic and place a light pattern on the road ahead.
