What is ADAS Calibration?

If your car has been purchased within the past 10 years, it is possible that it has ADAS installed. ADAS, or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, are common technologies installed in your car that are designed to enhance already present safety systems. From adaptive cruise control to smartphone connectivity and automated braking, these systems will become mandated in new models of cars within the next few years. If your front windshield is damaged it is imperative that your vehicle's ADAS gets calibrated. The front-facing camera is the main component in helping your car's safety systems stay working properly.

Glass Doctor glass expert scanning and measuring a white car as part of the ADAS calibration process. These systems are designed to keep you, your passengers, pedestrians, and other cars safe. It can be difficult to locate where the ADAS technologies are on your vehicle but the camera that controls the system is located on the front windshield. When your camera has not been calibrated after a windshield replacement, it will either overcorrect or under correct your car's lane-keeping system, causing dangerous driving conditions and increasing the likelihood of accidents.

Glass Doctor® of Lawton has specially trained glass specialists that will work diligently to precisely calibrate the ADAS on your vehicle after a windshield calibration service.

The ADAS Calibration Process

The service professionals at Glass Doctor of Lawton follow the industry's best practices and standards to perform your car's calibration system after a windshield replacement:

  1. Pre-scan: The first step our experts will take is looking into all the sensors and cameras on your ADAS systems to make sure that it is working properly. If the camera is not working properly then the vehicle will need to be sent to a dealer for a camera repair.
  2. Windshield Replacement: If your windshield needs to be replaced, then our service professionals will perform the procedures necessary to replace it with glass that meets the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS).
  3. Calibration: Different ADAS systems require different types of calibration. There are two types of calibration, static and dynamic.
    1. Static Calibration requires the vehicle to be calibrated with a fixed target image in front of the camera at a specific distance.
    2. Dynamic Calibration requires driving the vehicle during the calibration process.

How long does the ADAS Calibration process take?

The time of the process depends on the type of vehicle, but most calibrations take an average of one to two hours. At Glass Doctor of Lawton, we perform static calibrations (target board calibration) and dynamic calibrations (on-road). Some vehicles require, both, the static and dynamic calibration processes.

ADAS Calibration Cost

The ADAS calibration can cost anywhere between $150-$650, depending on the complexity of the system, labor costs, and the geographic location of the vehicle.
