Windshield Camera & Sensor Calibration – ADAS Calibration

Calibration is an essential service for vehicles that use cameras and sensors to stay safe on the road.

ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) features are now present in more than 100,000,000 cars all over the world. If you own a newer car, it’s likely that you have access to adaptive cruise control, lane-assist, blind-spot alerts, and other ADAS-enabled features.

These features require a fresh calibration after a windshield replacement. Recalibrations are considered mandatory by all auto manufacturers after windshield replacements, collisions, or error warnings.

Van Isle Glass can now provide this service when you’re getting auto glass replaced on an ADAS-equipped vehicle.

What is ADAS Calibration?

ADAS calibration is the process of aligning cameras and sensors so that they can provide their full range of intended safety features. A calibration will ensure that your sensors are optimized to detect objects and distance properly.

This calibration is first performed when your vehicle is prepared for sale. As long as your glass stays in pristine condition, your sensors should detect obstacles accurately.

Keeping your glass pristine is no small feat on Vancouver Island. Harsh weather and rough driving conditions can result in surprise problems. Cracks, chips, and stains can interfere with the operation of your sensors, causing them to ignore threats and alert you to objects that are not there.

Repairing or replacing your glass alone won’t solve these problems. Your sensors will have to be carefully adjusted to account for new changes in tint, thickness or other factors.

During a calibration, our trained technicians will use specialized tools to run diagnostics on your sensors. Different calibration processes may be necessary depending on the make and model of your vehicle. Our technicians are ready to help with all systems.

Do I need to recalibrate my windshield camera after repairs?

It is recommended that you recalibrate your windshield camera after repairs. While repairs may fix the appearance of your glass, there may be tiny blurred areas that interfere with camera functions. Calibration can resolve these issues.

Why does the windshield matter so much to ADAS calibration?

The windshield matters so much to ADAS calibration because it is home to many different sensors. Replacing a windshield can cause multiple sensors to fail at the same time.

Will my car tell me when I need an ADAS calibration?

Your car’s ADAS may warn you when you need to update your calibration. However, you shouldn’t expect that your sensors will always know when they’re out of alignment. Scheduling a service call may be the only way to be sure.

What are the signs that ADAS need calibration?

You should consider recalibration if your ADAS is detecting and warning you about objects that aren’t there. You should have your vehicle serviced immediately if errors cause it to create dangerous conditions on the road

I highly recommend this business as they really have a "can-do" attitude. They had a Plan A and a Plan B, both of which were much cheaper than I had anticipated. My windshield wiper arm was bent, and they fixed it at a great price, even though this was not technically a glass repair. Probably saved me hundreds, as Audi parts and installation aren't cheap. Thank you for your great customer service! (And thanks too to the Canadian Tire mechanic who recommended them.)

I was so impressed both times I went to Van Isle Glass this year. Very accommodating and friendly people. When my rearview mirror came off I dropped in and they fixed it right away for no charge. I won't go anywhere else.
