What is ADAS?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are automation systems developed to improve the safety of vehicles. A number of car manufacturers now provide ADAS features as standard features in modern cars, with additional ADAS available on higher specification models and as added extras.

What’s the need for ADAS calibration?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems depend on cameras, radars and other detectors to accurately monitor the position of cars, surroundings, the road conditions and more. If the inputs from these systems are not accurate, then the systems can no longer work effectively. You may have heard the phrase GIGO in computer language – this stands for Garbage In, Garbage Out meaning; if the sensors are providing bad information; the performance of the systems will also be ineffective.

ADAS calibration is essential for vehicles following accidents or repairs. Accidents, even very minor bumps, can alter the alignment of the sensitive sensors, rendering the systems useless.
