Why is Windscreen Camera Calibration necessary?
ADAS windscreens typically function through a combination of sensors and cameras.
Vehicle manufacturers recommend that, following a windscreen replacement, the system is calibrated to ensure that all safety features are working. If your windscreen is incorrectly fitted, even by as little as a few millimetres, these technologies might be compromised! Each car is different, so manufacturers also stipulate unique calibration settings for their Driver Assistance Systems.
Calibrating your windscreen should not be limited to immediately after a complete replacement. It is recommended that you get your Driver Assistance Systems checked if:
- Your ADAS camera is disconnected.
- Your camera is partially removed or develops a fault.
- You have recently had a wheel alignment or change of suspension because this can affect your ADAS service.
