WHAT IS P-PAC?

As Vehicle Safety Professionals, we have a moral and legal obligation to ensure that our customers make it home safely. That’s why we promise that every ADAS Calibration service we perform meets our own rigorous quality standard guidelines and specifications

What is ADAS Calibration?

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are electronic systems in a vehicle that use advanced technologies to assist the driver. They can include many active safety features, and often the terms “ADAS” and “active safety” are used interchangeably. ADAS uses sensors in the vehicle such as radar and cameras to perceive the world around it, and then either provides information to the driver or takes automatic action based on what it perceives. ADAS Calibration involves aligning these sensing devices in your car so that they function properly. ADAS Calibration requires specialized equipment and tools with highly trained technicians capable of adjusting, resetting, or replacing these systems.

When is an ADAS Calibration Needed?

ADAS relies on a variety of sensors in your vehicle that allow the system to determine if there are any potential hazards around your automobile. The most common components of an ADAS system are camera, radar, and ultrasonic sensors. These delicate sensors are precisely calibrated and require professional recalibration if their positions become unaligned. Senor misalignment can occur in a number of different ways including:

  • Vehicle collisions
  • Mounting Bracket Repair & Removal
  • Windshield Replacements & Defects
  • Suspension Repairs & Wheel Alignment
  • Change In Tire Size
  • Front Airbag Deployment
  • Car Roof Repair

Sensor recalibration is necessary when the related Diagnostic Trouble Code detects a system malfunction. Failure to properly calibrate a sensor when necessary can result in faulty information that may cause ADAS to operate improperly, or cease functionality altogether.

At PPAC, we know that an ADAS Calibration means more than making sure each sensor in your vehicle is installed properly. It takes the right skills, equipment, and specialized knowledge to accurately perform an ADAS Calibration. Each of our technicians is I-CAR Gold Class trained. That’s an achievement that only 10% of auto repair shops can claim.

This means that all of our technicians have received the absolute highest level of technical training. Our team stays updated with the latest OEM repair procedures in order to give you the best possible service, every time.

WHAT SYSTEMS IS YOUR VEHICLE EQUIPPED WITH?

The past few decades have seen significant improvements to passive automotive safety features designed to reduce injuries during a collision. It wasn’t too long ago when standard safety measures like airbags and three-point seatbelts were unheard of in the industry.

Today, ADAS systems actively improve the effectiveness of current safety standards with the help of embedded vision components that help reduce occurrences of car collisions and physical injury to vehicle occupants. The implementation of cameras in the vehicle involves A.I. ​​functionality that fuses together with delicate sensors to identify and process potential threats.

Sensor fusion is similar to the advanced neurological processes of the human brain. The system gathers information then compiles large amounts of data with the help of image recognition software, ultrasound sensors, lidar, and radar. This technology can physically respond faster than a human driver ever could. It can analyze streaming video in real-time, recognize what the video shows, and determine how to react to it.

Some of the most common ADAS applications are:

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Adaptive cruise control (ACC) is particularly helpful on the highway, where drivers can find it difficult to monitor their speed and other cars over a long period of time. Advanced cruise control can automatically accelerate, slow down, and at times stop the vehicle, depending on the actions of other objects in the immediate area.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

Crashes and pileups caused by drivers that unintentionally leave their lane due to inattention, fatigue, or distraction are a leading reason for traffic injuries and fatalities. Lane Departure Warning cautions the driver when their vehicle strays out of its lane without signaling so that they can correct their course and avoid running into other vehicles.

NIGHT VISION SYSTEM

Night vision systems enable drivers to see things that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to see at night. There are two categories of night vision implementations: Active night vision systems project infrared light, and passive systems rely on the thermal energy that comes from cars, animals, and other objects.

AROUND VIEW MONITORING

The automotive surround view camera system assists the driver in parking the vehicle safely by allowing them to see a top-down view of the 360-degree surroundings of the vehicle. Such a system normally consists of four to six wide-angle (fish-eye lens) cameras mounted around the vehicle, each facing a different direction. From these camera inputs, a composite view of the surroundings of the vehicle is synthesized and shown to the driver in real-time during parking.

BLIND SPOT DETECTION

Blind spot detection systems use sensors to provide drivers with important information that is otherwise difficult or impossible to obtain. Some systems sound an alarm when they detect an object in the driver’s blind spot, such as when the driver tries to move into an occupied lane.

REAR COLLISION WARNING

Intricate reversing maneuvers for dropping off deliveries on crowded city streets can cause collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. Rear Collision Warning informs the driver when a rear collision is imminent so that they can take action to prevent it from happening.

WINDSHIELD REPLACEMENT

Did you know that car windshields are very technologically advanced? What you may think is just glass, is actually much more than meets the eye. You can’t always see them, but there are built-in sensors, specially positioned tinted and non-tinted areas, heaters, and noise reduction layers all across your windshield. There might even be built-in or attached sensors that may be linked to your car’s ADAS. If those sensors change position by a millimeter or degree, it may throw the entire system off. This is one reason why ADAS recalibration is essential after a windshield replacement.

MOBILE SERVICE

No time is your schedule to have your ADAS system calibrated to peak safety standards? Not a problem at all. Schedule a Mobile Service call with P-PAC and we will send a technician directly to your home or office for professional maintenance. Our technician will make sure your ADAS is properly tested and perform a recalibration if necessary. All you need to do is contact us and a member of our team will schedule your appointment. We believe that nothing should get in the way of automobile safety.
