What To Do With A Cracked Adas Windscreen?by John Cina seo
ADAS windscreens are becoming popular these days because of the security features that they offer. They have made car travel a lot safer for everyone. Most modern cars now come fitted with this system and for the most part, it is beneficial for the drivers. However, when these ADAS windscreens crack then repairing or replacing them becomes a nightmare for the people. A large majority of the people aren’t aware that these windscreens need to be calibrated again in the event of repair or car windscreen replacement. This is the reason why the repair/replacement cost of these windscreens is much more than that of a traditional car windscreen.
Getting the Calibration Done
The car glass replacement process remains the same for ADAS windscreens. However, ADAS windscreens, require additional time after the replacement process as it needs to be recalibrated after the replacement.ADAS windscreens have sensors and cameras attached to them, which have to be removed before replacing a new windshield. Therefore, when the car glass has been replaced, the cameras and the sensors have to be reattached and calibrated again to ensure that they continue to perform their roles efficiently. Without this recalibration, the ADAS windscreen won’t be able to provide you with the security that it originally did. Do remember that this recalibration job needs to be performed by a service provider that specializes in this field.
Different Types of Calibration
There are different types of calibration techniques used for ADAS windscreens these days. You have static calibration, where the car has to remain still while a calibration tool is used in order to recalibrate the different cameras and sensors using the help of target boards. This calibration method can only be performed by a trained individual and can only be done in a controlled environment. It is slightly costly as well. The second calibration method is called dynamic calibration. In this method, the calibration of the sensors and cameras is done while the car is in motion. Some ADAS-enabled cars are capable of recalibrating their sensors and cameras automatically using the dynamic calibration method. It is still important to get the calibration done by a professional.
