ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems)
ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems rely heavily upon a vehicle’s front-facing camera. If a windshield is replaced, it’s vital that the front-facing camera is still calibrated to be able to provide these systems with accurate information. A camera that’s off by as much as a couple of millimeters can cause a vehicle’s ADAS systems to think that it’s feet away from its intended target zone, causing dangerous driving conditions.
