What is ADAS?
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are systems developed to automate/adapt/enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving.
Safety features are designed to avoid collisions and accidents by offering technologies that alert the driver to potential problems, or to avoid collisions by implementing safeguards and taking over control of the vehicle. Adaptive features may automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, automate braking, incorporate GPS/ traffic warnings, connect to smartphones, alert driver to other cars or dangers, keep the driver in the correct lane, or show what is in blind spots.

Why Is Camera Calibration Required?
At Budget Windscreens, Health and Safety is our top priority. As vehicles become more advanced, they are adding more intelligent driver assist systems. Some of these Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), for example, Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Autonomous Emergency Breaking (AEB) systems, require a camera on the windscreen. Replacing the windscreen on your vehicle may cause small changes to the angle of this camera. As a result, it is strongly recommended that the camera is calibrated after the changing of the windscreen.
How Can Budget Windscreens Help?
Our specialist calibration equipment correctly re-aligns the cameras and sensors to ensure your ADAS systems works like it has come straight from the showroom. Our technicians have been specially trained to calibrate your system to the specifications laid out by the manufacturers. We use Hella Gutman Diagnostic equipment the world leaders in ADAS technology.
Including the Expert fitting of your new windscreen the entire process takes around 2 hours after which you can rest assured that all the safety features on your vehicle will work perfectly.
About ADAS Calibration
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are becoming increasingly common in modern vehicles, providing a range of safety features such as lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking. These systems rely on cameras, sensors, and other components to gather data and make decisions. However, if these components are not properly calibrated, they may not function correctly, putting the driver and other road users at risk. This is where ADAS camera calibration comes in.
Accurately calibrating the camera or cameras used in an ADAS system is vital for guaranteeing that your vehicle can accurately recognize its environment and any objects nearby. This process, known as ADAS windscreen camera calibration, meticulously aligns and sets up the camera(s) so it sends precise signals to be processed by the ADAS system.
The process typically involves using specialized equipment and software to adjust the camera’s position, focus, and other settings.
