In recent years, technological progress in the automotive industry has greatly improved the enjoyment, safety and comfort of driving, with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) propelling the production of smart vehicles. These systems are already incorporated into many vehicle makes and models and will become even more common in the immediate future.
Advanced driver assistance-systems include lane keeping, danger detection, adaptive cruise control, emergency braking and safety warnings (sounds or vibrations).

Some automakers state that if the windshield is replaced, the camera must be calibrated at one of their dealerships. Is this true?
No. In 2012, the Dutch advertising code authority instructed a manufacturer (Volvo) to withdraw this assertion and acknowledge that just like dealers, the technicians at Belron (including those at Lebeau®) could safely replace windshields equipped with a camera.
What types of advanced driver-assistance systems recalibration are available?
There are currently two advanced driver-assistance system recalibration methods: static and dynamic. Some vehicles require that both methods be used. Static calibration is done in our service centres using a set of targets and patented tools. With the dynamic method, the technician must drive the vehicle to recalibrate the camera. The universal method requires complete recalibration using both processes.
