Is there a camera connected to your windshield? The forward-facing camera is part of your vehicle's advanced safety systems, sometimes called advanced driver assistance safety systems (ADAS). These systems are designed to keep you and your vehicle safe on the road.
The ADAS camera systems are designed to work together to enhance vehicle safety by alerting the driver to potential problems and avoiding collisions – they can aid, warn and assist. Some examples include automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane assist, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, collision avoidance, and more. If so equipped, the camera’s proper operation is a critical component of your vehicle's advanced safety system.
When damage occurs and you need a windshield replacement, nearly all vehicle manufacturers require that the camera connected to your windshield be recalibrated.
For the camera and the advanced safety systems to continue to work properly, Atlas Auto Glass can often complete the windshield replacement and safety system recalibration in a single appointment.
Due to the importance of your vehicle's advanced safety system, you need a trusted expert with the capability of recalibration to ensure your advanced safety features are operating at their optimal level. When you make an appointment with Atlas, you’ll be alerted if the vehicle needs recalibration services after a replacement. At the time of your appointment, an Atlas technician trained in recalibration will complete the recalibration required by your vehicle manufacturer.
Requires driving the vehicle at a set speed on well-marked roads to recalibrate the camera system. Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Requires a specific target image mounted on a fixture in front of the vehicle during the recalibration process. Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Different manufacturers require either a static or dynamic process and for some vehicles, both are required.
