ADAS & Windshield Glass

ADAS & Windshield Glass

If your vehicle was manufactured in the last ten years, it’s very likely that it comes equipped with ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. Because most road accidents occur due to human error, ADAS technology is becoming more commonplace as it enhances road safety and better driving through the help of sensors, lasers and radars.

What are some of the common features in your vehicle operated by ADAS? They include the following:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Adaptive Light Control
  • Automatic Braking
  • Automatic Parking
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Collision Avoidance Systems
  • Driver Drowsiness Detection
  • GPS Navigation
  • Hill Descent Control
  • Intelligent Speed Adaptation
  • Lane Departure Warning Systems
  • Night Vision
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring

Many of these technologies rely on a camera mounted on the windshield of the vehicle, and with new technologies comes also new safety measures. ADAS sensors must be installed by certified technicians, and when your windshield is repaired or replaced, it is imperative that the ADAS system is properly re-calibrated to ensure optimum functionality.

At First Response Glass, our certified technicians know which vehicles require ADAS re-calibration, and this is done with our Opti-Aim Calibration Device.
