SAVING LIVES THANKS TO A WELL-CALIBRATED CAMERA

System intelligence integrated into more and more cars

Because the dream of a smart car has now become a reality, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (otherwise known as ADAS) can be found in a growing number of vehicles. In addition to playing an important role in the safety of drivers and road users, today's cars are far smarter than those 10 years ago, and this, all makes and models combined.  

  • A well calibrated camera prevents collision (related to ADAS features)
  • A well calibrated camera prevents lane departure (related to ADAS features)

THE IMPORTANCE OF CALIBRATING THE CAMERA

To function properly, most Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) rely on a digital camera installed directly on the windshield at the back of the rearview mirror. For safety reasons, it is essential to trust experts with the calibration of your camera following car manufacturers’ requirements, when replacing your windshield.

The next time you file a claim for windshield replacement, keep in mind that calibration cost is included included in most Canadian insurers’ coverage plan.

If some of these features look familiar to you, it means that you are the owner of vehicle equipped with ADAS!

These systems are so widespread that they are now featured in the majority of vehicles, all models combined.

Industry experts are projecting that 100% autonomous vehicles will be on the road by 2030 and that by the end of 2020, 1 out of 5 cars will have Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
