When & Why Do I Need To Get My Windshield Calibrated

To completely know when and why your automobile needs a windshield calibration, car owners need to initially understand what Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are. Commonly called ADAS for short, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are becoming more and more common in new age cars and for that reason, car owners are usually uneducated in regard to any maintenance that is needed to help the system running properly. Now, a windshield calibration can appear like it is entirely unrelated, although this could not be further from the truth. ADAS make use of lidar, cameras, radar, sensors, and many other devices in order to work towards creating a driving experience that is safer for those in the automobile. Although, to precisely obtain all of the information, the Advanced Driver Assistance System of a vehicle must be correctly calibrated, especially following a windshield replacement.

Even the smallest maladjustment in the calibration of a vehicle’s ADAS could end up with disastrous results. The reason for this is due to the large amount of information that the system not only takes in but then has to pass on to automated systems inside the car to caution them of any incoming hazards. A few of these automated systems are things such as Emergency driver assistant, Blind spot monitor, Automotive night vision, Driver drowsiness detection, Driver monitoring system, Collision avoidance system, Crosswind stabilization, Forward collision warning, Intersection assistant, Hill descent control, and much more. After a windshield replacement is also not the only time in which your vehicle may need a calibration as it is usually recommended after a change in alignment or suspension, if the dashboard shows a faulty code, and if the camera has been disconnected.
