The Importance of ADAS Calibration After Replacing the Windshield:

A car

The glass in newer automobiles, may have specialized systems that are called ADAS for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, and which may include Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Alert, and Blind Spot Monitoring. These sensors may be integrated into the windshield and must be recalibrated after each windshield replacement to ensure the systems are working properly.

  • Ready AutoGlass technicians who perform the calibration processes for our customers’ vehicles have completed training by AUTEL, the creator of the equipment and software, used specifically for calibration of ADAS systems. Our technicians are certified by the AUTEL Training Academy.

Types of Calibration

Calibration type is determined by the vehicle year, make and model.

  1. Static Calibration: This process requires a controlled environment and is performed in our shop and is accomplished by targets being set at specific locations in front of the vehicle so that the computer and camera can identify them and understand where your vehicle is positioned in relation to them. This process may take approximately an hour.
  2. Dynamic Calibration: This process takes place while the vehicle is being driven. The calibration equipment is plugged into the ODB port under the dash to make sure the camera is reading the road markings correctly. The vehicle’s computer confirms when the calibration is successful.
  3. Dual Calibration: On some vehicles where both processes are required to correctly restore the ADAS system to factory settings.
