Windshield Calibration FAQs
What is Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) Windshield Camera Calibration?
One of the newest technologies in the Autoglass business is the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) which works in part using a camera that is mounted to the windshield. This system gives the driver an alert if there are potential hazards on the road.
What are the types of ADAS systems?
- Lane Keep Assist – In the event the driver does not use a blinker, this system will bring the vehicle back into designated lane.
- Lane Departure Warning System – Warns driver when they are leaving lane unexpectedly. Usually warns driver via a vibration and/or sound.
- Forward Collision Alert – Uses radar, lasers, or cameras to detect and warn drivers of other vehicles in front of their cars. Notifies driver via a visual and/or audio signal if following too close.
- Adaptive Cruise Control – The vehicle will self-adjust depending on the distance of the vehicle ahead.
What are the Types of Calibration?
- Static Calibration
Autospecs Glass has the ability to do mobile and in-shop Static calibration. Our certified technicians use an advanced electronic system alongside OEM spec targets to give precise measurements according to OEM specs
- Dynamic Calibration
This type of calibration works with the technician driving the vehicle while the advanced electronic system tells driver the exact speed and exact distance to drive.
- Dual Calibration
This occurs when we have to do both calibrations. This can be done while in shop or in mobile.

If your windshield is being replaced, it is a crucial requirement that the camera is calibrated property to its original OEM settings. Otherwise, the ADAS systems will not function properly. Don’t risk your safety.
