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).

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.
What advanced driver-assistance system components are affected when the windshield is replaced?
Advanced driver-assistance systems are often linked to cameras affixed to the windshield of the vehicle. These cameras capture data related to the traffic and road environment. A camera that has not been recalibrated following a windshield replacement may perform poorly.
At Lebeau Vitres d’autos®, our experts are trained in the latest technology and use patented tools. When we replace a windshield that incorporates a driver-assistance system, we recalibrate the camera and adjust it on the new windshield.1 We do not disconnect the camera from its power supply when replacing the windshield.
