Windshield Camera Recalibration

Advanced safety systems recalibration services

Is there a camera connected to your windshield? The forward-facing camera is part of your vehicle’s advanced safety systems, sometimes called advanced driver assistance safety systems (ADAS). These systems are designed to keep you and your vehicle safe on the road.

Why do I need advanced safety systems recalibration?

The rise of ADAS

When damage occurs and you need a windshield replacement, nearly all vehicle manufacturers require that the camera connected to your windshield be recalibrated.

For the camera and the advanced safety systems to continue to work properly, A1 Auto Glass can often complete the windshield replacement and safety system recalibration in a single appointment.

More and more vehicles have advanced safety systems, and nearly all of those vehicle brands require a safety system recalibration after a windshield replacement. A1 Auto Glass technicians are experienced with the recalibration process and will help ensure your vehicle continues to keep you safe on the road.

Examples of ADAS

These driver assistance systems protect drivers through a range of capabilities, creating a circular safety net around the vehicle to help reduce the risk of collisions. The forward-facing front cameras enable advanced safety features to aid and warn drivers on the road.

The ADAS camera systems are designed to work together to enhance vehicle safety by alerting the driver to potential problems and avoiding collisions – they can aid, warn and assist. Some examples include automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane assist, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, collision avoidance, and more. If so equipped, the camera’s proper operation is a critical component of your vehicle’s advanced safety system.

If you need a windshield replacement, A1 Auto Glass will replace your windshield and recalibrate your forward-facing front camera.
