ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems is a collective term for the various technological enhancements present in many modern vehicles. These technologies aim to enhance and improve both driver and vehicle safety. Often Advanced Driver Assistance Systems can be found as part of modern windshield. Because of these developments, special procedures must be followed when you are getting a new windshield installed on many modern vehicles.
Features of ADAS Windshields:
Automobiles are constantly evolving. As a result, more and more frequently advanced driver safety features are being integrated into the windshields. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are relevant to vehicle glass repair and replacement because of the cameras and sensors that can be present on the windshield itself.
When an ADAS integrated windshield is replaced, there is a danger of misalignment due to their sensitivity. This can have a significant effect on how well the system works. The technician fitting your windshield must ensure correct calibration is carried out so that the camera has precisely the right view of the road ahead. As ADAS technology continues to improve and get more complex – it therefore becomes vital that you have a trusted expert like Hampton Auto Glass to handle any and all windshield repairs.
Why is Windshield Camera Calibration necessary? ADAS windshields typically function through a combination of sensors and cameras.
Vehicle manufacturers recommend that, following a windshield replacement, the system is calibrated to ensure that all safety features are working. If your windshield is incorrectly fitted, even by as little as a 1/8 of an inch, the camera angle might be compromised! Each car is different, so manufacturers also stipulate unique calibration settings for their Driver Assistance Systems.
Replacing the windshield is not the only time you will need a calibration. 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.

What is the difference between Dynamic and Static ADAS Calibration?
There are two distinct branches of ADAS Calibration. Depending on the nature of your windshield technologies – you will require either:
This applies to dynamic ADAS. Calibration is carried out with the use of a hand-held device plugged directly into the car. In most cases, the vehicle will then need to be driven at a prescribed speed over a certain distance in optimum weather conditions so the system can become accustomed to certain road features. Often the vehicle manufacturer will stipulate specific parameters for calibration of their dynamic ADAS.
This applies to static ADAS. Calibration is carried out in a specially tailored workshop environment. This form of calibration requires a specialist Camera and Sensor Calibration Tool. Each car manufacturer requires different calibration settings due to the particulars for their Static ADAS.
Thankfully, at Hampton Auto Glass we are equipped to cater for both Dynamic and Static Advanced Driver Assistance System Calibration on any make or model of car.
