Does your car issue an audible or visual signal to keep you aware of speed limits, when you involuntarily cross a lane, when there’s another vehicle in your blind spot, or issues the emergency breaks to avoid a collision? Some of these functions are possible because of the camera behind the windshield.
Camera recalibration is required after a windshield replacement
When our technician work on your vehicle to replace your windshield, they must move the front camera. If the camera is misaligned by only a few milimeter, then your ADAS might not work properly.
Choosing to replace your windshield at Lebeau is a good way to make sure your service centre is equipped with the latest technologies to recalibrate your front camera, therefore ensuring a your ADAS works as precise as possible.
The vehicle is stationnary and fixed devices are installed all around the vehicle. The devices allows our technician to align your camera precisly with the help of targets.
The dynamic recalibration is done while the vehicle is moving, while on the road. Technicians use a portative device that allows them to see if the camera is well positionned in many scenarios. The road condition must be suitable for this type of testing.
The combination of both recalibration types, static and dynamic, is called universal recalibration. Both types need to be completed within a certain time to be considered valid.
