ADAS Calibration in Fort Wayne, Indiana
Ensuring Your Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Are Properly In Tune
What Is ADAS Calibration?
Yeoman Service Center is proud to be the first auto shop in town to offer professional ADAS calibration. ADAS stands for “advanced driver assistance system,” which includes the numerous and helpful driver-assist features available in today’s vehicles. These include blind-spot monitoring, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and rear cross-traffic alert. Vehicles outfitted with these systems come with strategically placed cameras and sensors on the exterior, allowing the systems to operate properly. Meanwhile, calibration is the measurement of an item in an exact and precise way. Together, ADAS calibration is the realigning of the sensors and cameras of ADAS systems to OEM specifications to ensure precise functionality. Being off by just one degree, for example, can wreak havoc on these systems and cause them to miscalculate a target or object, not respond accurately, or even fail.
When Is Calibration Needed?
Not many drivers are aware that ADAS calibration is an essential service that is needed, and a lot of the time, after certain routine services. For example, we recommend it after major services such as windshield replacement, suspension repair, tire replacement, and wheel alignment. The operation of ADAS extends to several different parts of a vehicle, such as the wheels and windshield. There’s always a possibility that a sensor or camera can be disturbed in service jobs related to these components. With that in mind, calibration is also highly encouraged after a collision, especially if your airbag was deployed in the process and if your ride height was adjusted for any reason. Essentially, any occurrence where the cameras or sensors could have been disturbed, we recommend calibration of ADAS. It takes specialized and honed skill and sophisticated equipment to perform, and Yeoman Service Center is more than prepared to assist.
