What is ADAS and how does it affect my windscreen?

ADAS is an abbreviation for Advanced Driver Assistance System, a collective term for the new technology used to assist the driver in avoiding road collisions. The ADAS technology uses cameras and radar and other systems to inform the vehicle of where it is on the road looking forward and sometimes to the side or backwards. The majority of front facing camera systems are either attached to the inside of the windscreens or are mounted on the roof and look through the windscreen. Many modern vehicles are now equipped with sophisticated ADAS technology, as safety features such as automatic emergency braking and lane departure warnings become more standard. Often ADAS with a forward looking camera will require recalibration after windscreen replacement as a vehicle manufacturer requirement due to the technology being housed in windscreen mounted hardware.

Can O’Brien® recalibrate my ADAS camera?

Yes we can.

We now offer recalibration for many vehicle types with our Cal-Tech® system.

For some vehicle models where the O’Brien® system is not yet available, we have relationships with many car manufacturer dealerships and will arrange the recalibration on your behalf.

Do I have ADAS on my vehicle?

It is important to know if your vehicle is fitted with ADAS because it can help improve road safety if it is working properly.

We advise you check with your vehicle manufacturer for which ADAS systems you have on your vehicle. Alternatively, O’Brien® can easily identify if your car has an ADAS windscreen with just a few questions.

Why does O’Brien® recalibrate your car’s ADAS safety cameras?

It is recommended by most vehicle manufacturers that after replacing your windscreen the cameras should be recalibrated to ensure the system is operating with the precision that the safety system requires.

At O’Brien® when we replace a windscreen with inbuilt ADAS technology, we believe the safest option is to recalibrate the camera in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Does O’Brien® guarantee the camera recalibration?

Yes we do. Please read our ADAS Guarantee for more information.
