ADAS Calibration Service

ADAS Calibration Service in Tucson

May 11, 2024

Modern vehicles come equipped with advanced safety features like lane-keeping assistance and emergency braking, powered by intricate systems known as ADAS. Precise calibration of ADAS sensors is essential to ensure these systems function optimally. At Tucson Auto Glass Repair Pros, we understand the critical role ADAS plays in your car’s functionality, which is why we offer expert ADAS calibration service. Whether your vehicle has undergone collision repair or you’ve made suspension adjustments, trust us to ensure the accurate calibration of your ADAS sensors for enhanced safety on the road.

Why ADAS Calibration Matters

ADAS systems use cameras, radar, lidar, and other sensors to monitor your car’s surroundings and aid the driver. For them to work correctly, these sensors need precise calibration to specific angles and positions relative to your vehicle. Even small misalignments can affect their performance, causing inaccurate warnings or failure to activate when necessary.

When Calibration is Necessary

Understanding when your Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) require recalibration is essential for maintaining their optimal functionality. Recalibration becomes necessary after specific events or modifications to your vehicle that could affect the accuracy of ADAS sensors.

  • Windshield Replacement or Repair 

ADAS sensors and cameras must be recalibrated after any windshield work, such as replacement or repair. Even minor misalignments can significantly impact system functionality, as the sensors are highly sensitive.

  • Accident Involvement

Following a collision, especially if the front end is affected, ADAS sensors may be knocked out of alignment and require recalibration. Bumper replacements or repairs can also necessitate ADAS calibration.

  • Vehicle Modifications

Aftermarket modifications like lift kits, lowering kits, or changes to wheels and tires can affect ADAS sensors, necessitating recalibration. Proper ride height and wheel alignment are essential for ADAS functioning.

  • Malfunctioning ADAS Features

If you notice ADAS features such as lane departure warning or adaptive cruise control malfunctioning or giving false alerts, it may indicate the need for recalibration.

While ADAS calibration is seamlessly integrated into our repair and replacement services, some shops may not be equipped for this. If you had your glass replacement done elsewhere, you can rely on us for professional calibration services to ensure your ADAS systems function accurately.

ADAS Calibration Service Process

At Tucson Auto Glass Repair Pros, we specialize in professional ADAS calibration services to ensure the accurate operation of your vehicle’s safety systems. Our process includes:

Pre-Calibration Inspection

Our experienced technicians conduct a thorough inspection of your vehicle’s ADAS sensors to assess their condition and identify any issues that may affect calibration. This includes checking for physical damage, proper sensor alignment, and ensuring the sensors are free from obstructions or contamination that could interfere with their operation.

Precise Calibration

Using state-of-the-art equipment and manufacturer-approved procedures, we meticulously calibrate each ADAS sensor to the manufacturer’s specifications, ensuring optimal accuracy and performance. Our calibration process involves adjusting the sensors’ positions, angles, and sensitivities to match the vehicle’s exact dimensions and driving characteristics.

Post-Calibration Verification

Following calibration, we perform comprehensive tests to verify the accuracy and functionality of your vehicle’s ADAS systems, ensuring they meet safety standards and operate as intended. This includes simulating various driving scenarios and conditions to validate the proper functioning of features like automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.

Certification and Documentation

Upon completion of calibration, we provide certification and documentation of the calibration process for your records, demonstrating compliance with manufacturer requirements and industry standards. This documentation serves as proof of the calibration work performed and can be used for warranty purposes or in the event of a collision.

By choosing Tucson Auto Glass Repair Pros for your ADAS calibration needs, you can rest assured that your vehicle’s safety systems are properly calibrated and ready to protect you and your loved ones on the road.

In-Shop ADAS Calibration

We recommend in-shop calibration for your Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). While some calibration tests can be conducted via our mobile service, we advise in-shop calibration for several reasons:

  • Level Surface

Our shop provides a flat and level surface, ensuring precise alignment during calibration. This is crucial for accurate calibration, as uneven surfaces in parking lots or driveways may hinder the proper alignment of targets to your vehicle.

  • Controlled Environment

Conducting calibration indoors eliminates the impact of direct sunlight, which can cause shadows and confusion for the calibration camera and targets. Additionally, outdoor elements such as wind, clouds, rain, or snow may obstruct and interfere with the calibration process. In-shop calibration offers a controlled environment, minimizing the risk of external factors affecting the accuracy of calibration.

  • Optimal Conditions

By performing calibration in-shop, we can control environmental factors, ensuring optimal conditions for accurate calibration. This control over the environment helps maintain consistency and reliability throughout the calibration process.

  • Dynamic Calibration Possibilities

Some vehicles require dynamic calibrations, involving driving the vehicle at certain speeds on marked roadways. While dynamic calibrations can be challenging to perform outdoors due to weather conditions, our in-shop calibration services provide a controlled environment for dynamic calibrations, ensuring safety and accuracy.
