What is ADAS? And How Does it Impact My Windshield
Almost all accidents are caused by human error, which can be avoided with Advanced Driver Systems (ADAS). The role of ADAS is to reduce the number of car accidents and the serious impact of those that cannot be avoided. Examples of ADAS Include:
- Automatic emergency braking
- Forward collision warning
- Lane keep assist
- Lane departure warning
- Pedestrian detection
- Collision avoidance
So how does ADAS work? ADAS uses sensors in the vehicle such as radar and cameras to perceive the world around it, and then either provide information to the driver or takes automatic action based on what it perceives. A misaligned camera or sensor can jeopardize the efficiency of the ADAS, so it’s crucial to have them calibrated.
When a windshield is replaced, safety features need to be recalibrated to ensure the 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.
