Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems Windshield Calibration
Our cars are becoming more advanced every day, rapidly transforming how we drive as auto technology continues to change; the effect on auto glass installation will be extraordinary. Consumer demand is changing legislation, and the momentum from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is driving growth in advanced driver assistance systems or ADAS like never before.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) new five-star safety rating system, now includes forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Technologies like lane assist, lane departure warnings, pedestrian detection, forward collision alerts, and adaptive cruise control are becoming more common, making drivers more aware and keeping us all safer.
So what do all of these technologies have in common? They all require cameras, lasers, and radar systems to work together to function correctly, needing certified auto glass professionals, like Auto Glass Express, to ensure that they are correctly calibrated. These technologies present a challenge to numerous auto glass installers and windshield replacement shops in Phoenix, as many of these cameras and sensors are mounted to the windshield. Many installers are unaware of the need for calibration, haven’t been certified or undergone proper training, and have been struggling with how to handle these complex installations. This causes a lot of concerns for drivers, and it’s something that any driver with a car newer than 2011 should look into when having their windshield repaired or replaced in Phoenix.
