Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, commonly referred to as ADAS, are a number of sensors within a vehicle that assist the driver. These systems are becoming steadily available and built-in to newer makes and models for most vehicles. ADAS may be assisting you in your own vehicle today without you even knowing it. Some of the most common ADAS technologies include...
- Automatic emergency braking
- Adaptive cruise control
- Lane departure warning
- Blind spot monitoring
- Parking assist/self-parking
- Automatic headlight high beam activation/dimming
These systems are the steps that are key in leading the automobile into the future... becoming completely autonomous.
ADAS for Auto Body Shops
As an auto body, collision, or automotive repair shop, you should become quite familiar with ADAS technology. After any repair work, paint job, or even re-alignment, a vehicle equipped with ADAS technology should be calibrated to proper OEM specifications. Many of these ADAS safety features rely on radar sensors mounted behind the front bumper, grille, rear bumper, and taillights of a vehicle. Safety is the top priority when it comes to repairing a vehicle to be operated again and that now will include calibrating ADAS sensors for most modern vehicles as well as vehicles to be created in the years to come. It is imperative that the repair work you conduct on a vehicle is followed up with an ADAS calibration as even the slightest change in an ADAS sensor can cause the safety features to not operate as effectively as they should or at the proper time that they should.
Vehicles equipped with ADAS technology that require repairs/replacement to a windshield will need re-calibration. Cars with ADAS technology are fitted with Front-Facing Camera Sensors. These ADAS sensors are the "eyes" for useful and potentially life-saving systems such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and more. The high-powered microprocessors, coupled with advanced data algorithms, convert the analog images taken by these camera's into digital information the ADAS technology utilizes for the functionality of the above features. The reason why these cameras will need to be re-calibrated after any windshield repairs/replacement is due to their location, typically mounted on the inside of the windshield. Without proper calibration, these cameras could miss a target or object that would cause one of these features to activate, thus increasing the risk for an accident.
ADAS for Glass Shops
ADAS for Mechanical & Tire Shops
Even automotive tire shops should be ready to send vehicles they work on to an ADAS calibration facility. Sensor calibration can be effected by a majority of collisions that cause any damage to the suspensions, which means wheel alignment will be necessary. Which way the vehicle is traveling and having proper wheel alignment will directly impact the lane keep assist and collision braking ADAS technologies as these systems rely on key input from steering angle sensors. Many OEM ADAS technology specifications require calibration to be done after wheel alignment. More importantly, the type of ADAS calibration varies depending on the vehicle and the OEMs specification requirements such as requiring the vehicle to be placed on an alignment rack to be calibrated.
