ADAS takes many different forms, but one system you may be familiar with are parking sensors. As soon as you’re getting close to an object while backing up, it’s ADAS that warns you when you’re getting too close.
Here are some other examples of ADAS:
- Lane departure warning
- Adaptive headlights
- Automatic braking system (ABS)
- Blind spot monitors
- Collision avoidance systems
Needless to say, in many vehicles ADAS is essential to the vehicle’s full functioning. Many car buyers even pay extra to have technologically advanced ADAS features that help to protect the driver and passengers.
But what most auto glass companies do not want you to know is that this calibration is often necessary after an auto glass repair.
It’s unsettling to think that plenty of people don’t know that when replacing auto glass, the ADAS can oftentimes become disarrayed, triggering a need for a calibration.
Something as simple as a windshield replacement can render the ADAS useless, or even dangerous.
Going back to the parking sensor example, what if you trusted your sensors while backing up, but they failed to alert you due to not being calibrated.
This system is part of the overall value of your car, and now it’s completely useless. Along with this, you’re putting yourself and others in potential failure. What if it were a more serious system like automatic braking or blind spot monitoring?
