Apollo Glass Offers Safety Services Recalibration
Does your vehicle highlight the latest in safety technology? Most new vehicles feature Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). ADAS alert drivers to potential problems on the roads, and even take control of the vehicle when necessary – coaxing your windshield wipers to turn on at the first sign of precipitation, or applying the emergency brakes if the vehicle was to collide with anything.
When a windshield is replaced, safety features need to be recalibrated to ensure proper functionality of the system. Windshield calibration is the process of adjusting the parameters of a camera lens to capture a complete image of the vehicle and road, guaranteeing that in-car ADAS receive accurate and reliable information.
ADAS works with the help of a camera that is embedded in the windshield and relays important road conditions so the system knows when to activate safety measures. A misaligned camera can jeopardize the efficiency of the ADAS, so it’s crucial to have them calibrated. Examples of ADAS include:
automatic emergency braking
forward collision warning
lane keep assist
lane departure warning
