What is Calibration?

Calibration is the process of returning a vehicle's ADAS to OEM specifications.

Calibration is necessary after a new glass installation, particularly a windshield with a camera mounted to it, to ensure that the ADAS features continue to function properly despite having been moved during installation.

Why do we need to be able to perform calibration?

A vehicle’s computer relies on the cameras/radars/lasers used by the ADAS being in the correct alignment to function properly, but does not automatically adjust them itself Calibration guides the vehicle’s computer & ensures these systems are working properly When a windshield is replaced, the camera should be removed from the bracket & unplugged from the car. After the replacement is completed, the camera needs to be reattached & recalibrated. If this is not performed by the installer, consumers will have to go to the dealer to have the vehicle calibrated*

*Even a camera that has not been unplugged from the car needs to be recalibrated to ensure proper functionality of the ADAS features & minimize the potential liability of the installer.

What will happen if vehicle is not calibrated

If a car’s ADAS is not properly calibrated, the system may not function safely

If the cameras/radars/lasers on the vehicle are off by even a few millimeters they may not give accurate readings and the system may not function properly, leaving the installer with potential liability

How long does calibration take?

Depending on the type of calibration & the specific vehicle, calibration can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 3+ hours.
