ADAS Camera Calibration
About ADAS Windscreen Camera Calibration
At Advanced Auto Glazing, our priority is keeping you safe on the road.
With constant advancements in car technology, new intelligent driver assist systems are finding their way into more and more models, including parking cameras which provide additional visibility to aid drivers with parking manoeuvres and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems that prevent the vehicle from leaving the road. Many systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Autonomous Emergency Braking can even detect obstacles around the vehicle and take control to prevent accidents.
Ultimately, our vehicles are getting smarter, and it’s through the introduction of new sensors and processors that they are better equipped to keep us safe.
These systems are often referred to by the umbrella term “Advanced Driver Assistance Systems”, or “ADAS” for short.
What Are ADAS Systems?
There are a huge number of systems that can be considered ADAS Systems – from Adaptive High-Beam (AHS) systems to Collision Avoidance Systems (CAS) and even fully autonomous “Autopilot” systems. These are all examples of ADAS or “Advanced Driver Assistance Systems”.
In order to work effectively, ADAS Systems are reliant on a network of sensors and cameras.
Why Would My ADAS System Need Recalibrating?
Sometimes, following windscreen repairs or replacements, these ADAS sensors and cameras may become misaligned and require refitting in a precise location. If this isn’t done, or the alignment is not performed correctly, these driver assistance systems that keep you and your vehicle safe may be compromised and your ADAS system may not be effective in preventing an accident.
For this reason, Advanced Auto Glazing strongly recommends ensuring your ADAS systems are recalibrated after your windscreen repair or replacement is completed. Our experts possess the expertise and equipment to ensure that your ADAS systems are in working order and effective at keeping you safe on the road.
Our ADAS Windscreen Camera Calibration Services Can Help If:
- You have had your windscreen replaced
- Your camera has been disconnected or partially removed
- The camera or dashboard is showing a fault code
- Your vehicle has had its wheels realigned
- The suspension of your vehicle has been changed

The calibration process can vary depending on the specific make and model of the vehicle and the type of ADAS system installed. In general, the process may involve the following steps:
Preparation: The technician will first ensure that the vehicle is in a suitable location, such as a flat and level surface with adequate lighting. They may also need to remove any obstructions that may interfere with the camera(s).
Initial Calibration: The technician will connect the vehicle to specialized equipment and run a series of tests to determine the initial calibration values for the camera(s). This may involve adjusting the camera’s orientation, focus, and other settings.
Target Placement: The technician will place targets in specific locations around the vehicle, which the camera(s) will use to calibrate their position and orientation. The targets may be placed on the ground, on a specialized calibration frame, or on other fixtures.
Final Calibration: The technician will use the data gathered from the initial calibration and the target placement to make final adjustments to the camera’s position, focus, and other settings. They will use specialized software and equipment to ensure that the calibration is accurate and precise.
Verification: Once the calibration process is complete, the technician will run a series of tests to verify that the ADAS system is functioning correctly. This may involve driving the vehicle and monitoring the system’s performance.
