Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) often rely on calibrated windscreen mounted cameras.
EuroNCAP safety ratings demand ever safer cars and increased use of camera-reliant safety systems within ADAS technology. Accordingly, the number of vehicles featuring windscreen mounted camera technology is growing very quickly. It is forecast that by 2020 over 40% of cars will have at least two ADAS features fitted.
The windscreen mounted cameras that are key to the function of ADAS always require recalibration following a windscreen replacement. This camera recalibration is necessary to ensure vehicle safety systems continue to work as intended.
The specialist glass technicians of Automotive Glass Europe® are expert at both glass replacement and ADAS camera recalibration. We work closely with vehicle manufacturers to ensure we have the data required to identify when recalibration is required and what type of process is specified by the vehicle. This process could be static, dynamic or self-recalibration. The majority of vehicles require static calibration, undertaken in workshop conditions. Automotive Glass Europe® partners provide the reassurance that recalibration equipment is always installed and operated in the optimum environment, ensuring accuracy throughout the process.
In addition, the appropriate recalibration equipment is always situated as close as possible to the windscreen replacement location. This enables the vehicle driver to drive away safely after only one visit. This is not only convenient for the motorist but also maximises safety by ensuring that the vehicle systems are immediately working as intended following windscreen replacement.
