When is ADAS Calibration Required?
Many factors can result in your ADAS features requiring calibration. At Focus Calibration we are experts at ensuring the forward facing systems are tuned correctly. The further the device has to look away from the vehicle, the more sensitive it is to being misaligned.
Some events that may result in re calibration being required:
- Collision or Impact
- Body Damage
- Roof Hail Damage
- Windshield Replacement
- Non-OEM tire installation
- ADAS camera/sensor replacement
- Any other event that may change alignment or prevent proper functioning of an ADAS feature.
The Features Matter
Not all ADAS features require calibration.
Some examples of features that may require calibration are:
- Lane Departure Warning
- Intelligent Brake Assist
- Smart City Braking
- Lane Keep Assist
Important Safety Note
Vehicle manufacturers are quite clear that they do not consider these systems as reliable enough to prevent all accidents. They are designed to reduce the likelihood of incidents through warnings and assisted responses, as well as reduce the severity of impacts when they do occur.
Unless you are in a fully autonomous vehicle and have been instructed by the manufacturer to never take control of it’s operation, safety is the responsibility of you as the driver. An assistance system must never be relied on exclusively as there are too many factors that can prevent them from being adequate.
