Windshield Calibration restores vehicle safety
WHEN DO I NEED TO GET MY WINDSHIELD RE-CALIBRATED?
What is Windshield Calibration?Windshield calibration refers to the process of aligning the cameras and sensors on a vehicle with the windshield. This is an important step in ensuring that the vehicle’s advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) work correctly. ADAS systems, such as lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking, rely on the cameras and sensors to accurately detect and respond to road conditions. If the cameras and sensors are not properly calibrated, the ADAS systems may not function as intended. This can result in increased risk of accidents and decreased driving safety.
Why is Windshield Calibration Necessary?Windshield calibration is necessary for several reasons. Firstly, if the cameras and sensors are not properly aligned with the windshield, they may not be able to accurately detect the road ahead. This can lead to false alarms, misreading of road conditions, and ultimately, decreased driving safety. Secondly, if a windshield is replaced, it’s important to calibrate the cameras and sensors to the new windshield. This is because the shape and thickness of a windshield can affect the accuracy of the cameras and sensors. Finally, calibrating your windshield after a collision is crucial. Even minor impacts can cause the cameras and sensors to become misaligned, which can result in decreased driving safety.
Why Calibration from Universal ?
How is Windshield Calibration Performed?Windshield calibration should be performed by a trained professional. The process typically involves the use of specialized equipment, such as a calibration machine, to align the cameras and sensors with the windshield. It’s important to note that calibrating a windshield is a delicate process and should not be attempted by non-professionals. Improper calibration can result in decreased driving safety and may void the vehicle’s warranty.
