Many newer vehicles are equipped with high tech safety features, such as lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and collision alert systems. These Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) rely on cameras and sensors to function. Often times these features are disrupted when your windshield is replaced. Calibration is an important safety measure that restores your vehicle’s ADAS to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications.

Vehicles That Require Calibration

Vehicles equipped with one or more of the following safety features require calibration after windshield replacement.

  • Driver Status Monitoring
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Forward Collision Alert (FCA)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Lane Keep Assist (LKA)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Collision Mitigation Breaking System
  • Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Monitoring

Windshield Replacement and ADAS

Windshield replacement on ADAS equipped vehicles usually involves removing and/or unplugging the cameras used for safety monitoring. This can result in inaccurate ADAS specifications, unless recalibrated by a certified technician using special equipment.
