Your windshield is not just a piece of glass. In fact, it contains an entire ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance System. Newer model vehicles, as well as luxury and exotic cars, contain Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. These systems are made up of cameras, sensors, and other equipment. Whenever your windshield has been replaced the sensors and cameras that are within your windshield glass are removed. When replacing your auto glass and adding the ADAS equipment back it is extremely important that it is done right and that all ADAS equipment is calibrated correctly. If a camera or sensor is replaced even a fraction of an inch off you are in danger of disrupting the entire ADAS system. This affects the safety of all passengers within the vehicle, pedestrians, and other drivers. Working with a professional windshield replacement specialist that is highly skilled in windshield calibration, like us here at DNA Auto Glass, can truly make all the difference.
What Is Window Calibration?
Windshield calibration consists of removing any ADAS equipment like sensors and cameras from the damaged windshield and attaching them to the newly installed windshield. During the calibration process cameras and sensors are tested and adjusted to ensure all ADAS equipment has been replaced correctly. Without calibration after a new windshield is installed your ADAS system will not function correctly, putting you and others in danger and possibly even causing an accident to occur. It is really important that you have your ADAS properly calibrated by a reputable windshield replacement company that knows calibration.
Importance of Windshield Calibration
The role of the ADAS system in your vehicle is to help prevent accidents and in cases where accidents can not be avoided, serious injury and death. Windshield recalibration for your newly installed windshield is important because it affects a number of crucial vehicle applications such as Pedestrian Detection /Avoidance, Lane Departure Warning Correction, Traffic Signal Recognition, Automatic Emergency Braking, Auto Parking, Navigation System, Driver Monitoring System, and more. If even one of these applications is not functioning right it can be extremely dangerous to both you and others on the road. That being said, when choosing a windshield replacement company, it is important to also inquire about their calibration service and their overall process.
