ADAS Calibration Information

Increasing numbers of new cars are equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Some of the more common ones include:

• Forward collision warning

• Automatic emergency braking

• Adaptive cruise control

• Lane departure warning

• Lane keeping assist

• Blind spot monitoring

• Rear cross traffic alert

• Parking assist/self-parking

• Adaptive headlights that steer with the vehicle

• Automatic headlight high-beam activation and dimming

Sensor Calibration

ADAS sensor calibration is required whenever a sensor’s aiming is disturbed in any way. This can occur in a collision, even a minor fender bender, or be a byproduct of common service work such as windshield replacement, suspension repairs or wheel alignment. Calibration is also called for whenever a sensor or its mounting bracket is removed and replaced, there is a change in tire size, a front airbag deploys and deflects off the windshield, or repairs are made to a car roof that has a sensor bracket mounted to it. Finally, sensor calibration is necessary when there is a related DTC in the car’s computer memory, or an automaker releases a technical service bulletin with instructions that calibration be done as part of another repair.
