Ask about our ADAS services at Diplock Fuel Injection Services Ltd in East Sussex.
What is ADAS?
Most vehicle accidents occur due to human error. Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) aims to prevent accidents by using electronic aids and warning systems, with an estimated 40% of modern vehicles being fitted with some form of ADAS with the vehicle occupants safety in mind. There are many forms of ADAS technologies from rear-view cameras and parking sensors to taking some level of control of the vehicle with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) if the vehicle senses a risk of a collision.
Your vehicle will be fitted with ADAS if it has any of the following features:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Autonomous Emergency Braking
- Blind Spot Awareness
- LED Matrix Headlights
- Lane Change Assist
- Traffic Sign Recognition
If you remain unsure if your vehicle has ADAS our specialist team will be able to advise you.
How does it work?
ADAS Typically operates through cameras and sensors or Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) radar or a combination. ADAS can be found in front and rear bumpers, windscreens, doors, wing mirrors and even badges. The diagram shows the types and locations of ADAS which may be found in a vehicle depending on make and model.
Vehicle manufacturers recommend if your vehicle is fitted with ADAS, it may need to be recalibrated after repairs are undertaken, these could be general repairs, windscreen replacement, wheel alignment or geometry change or partial removal or disconnection of a sensor from its mounting.
Why does ADAS need Calibrating?
ADAS relies on the communication of both camera and radars to operate correctly. Following repairs to a vehicle from wheel alignment to windscreen replacement or a major or minor accident the cameras and radars can become mis-aligned causing a major impact on the ADAS system, possibly being the difference between advoiding an accident or not.
Preparing for ADAS Calibration
Before an ADAS calibration is carried out there are a couple of things needed to prepare your vehicle to ensure the calibration is carried out correctly these include making sure 4 correct sized tyres are fitted to the vehicle which have been pumped to manufactures specifications, this can be found in your vehicle hand book, and removing any addition loading including but not limited to roof racks and canopies where ever possible.
