adas calibrations

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration is a multi-brand solution that will give your workshop a significant competitive advantage by allowing it to handle the dynamic calibration of ADAS systems, which are becoming more common even in commercial vehicles.

Calibration means realigning cameras and sensors, usually attached to windscreens and around the vehicle, which input information and ultimately control a vehicle’s Advanced Driver-Assist features. Lane departure, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with pre-conditioning instructions, diagnostic tools, wiring diagrams, technical data, and technical procedures are all covered.

In a nutshell, the Autel ADAS Software is an exciting development that could make driving any type of vehicle safer.

ADAS Calibration Functionality:

  • Reading and Deleting of Fault codes
  • Displaying of vehicle settings
  • Live data reading/recording
  • Parameter modifications
  • Detailed interactive wiring diagrams
  • Radar Calibration Static and Dynamic
  • Lane Departure Calibration
  • Calibration of emergency braking and adaptive cruise control

why adas?

ADAS functions are designed to improve driver, passenger, and pedestrian safety by reducing both the severity and the overall number of motor vehicle accidents. ADAS features can warn drivers of potential dangers, intervene to help the driver remain in control in order to prevent an accident, and, if necessary, reduce the severity of an accident if it can’t be avoided.

ADAS features are becoming much more common with new models. They are no longer limited to luxury vehicles. Some systems are becoming standard on all vehicle makes.

ADAS calibration equipment is an opportunity for your shop to not only improve driver safety but also increase the profits of your business and keep your business liability-free.

As of 2019, 23% of all registered vehicles on the road had at least 1 ADAS feature.

The answer to this question is wide ranging, it could be a few minutes to over an hour depending on the vehicle and the equipment being used.

The most time-consuming portion of static calibration is target set up. If you have a calibration system designed to accurately place your target in less time, that could be a plus.

The most time-consuming portion of a dynamic calibration is meeting the OE driving requirements. Constant vehicle speed, road conditions, available targets, etc.

  • Not making accurate measurements
  • Not following the vehicle pre-conditioning instructions, i.e. full gas tank, tire pressure, weight load, etc.
  • Improper lighting
  • Background clutter
  • Not maintaining battery voltage
  • Not updating your scan tool
Failure to recognize the target due to:

  • Not following the scan tool instructions exactly
  • Improper lighting
  • Background clutter
  • Improper measurements
  • Not following the vehicle pre-conditioning instructions. Full gas tank, tire pressure, load, etc.
Generally, a neutral tone works best. Off-white, tan and light gray work well.

  • Avoid:
  • Bright colors
  • Busy patterns
  • Checkerboard patterns
  • Black
