You Need An ADAS Calibration Solution

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) have grown immensely in popularity over the past several decades. Have you considered the impact these new safety systems will have on your facility’s workflow now and in the future? 

With advanced technology comes the need for advanced repairs. For auto body repair facilities, it’s imperative to confirm the proper performance of a vehicle’s safety system before final delivery. At ADAS Solutions, we have you covered. We provide a full-service ADAS Calibration Solution. This ensures a vehicle’s ADAS is safe and fully operational, so you can focus on the work you do best.  

What is ADAS?

(Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are systems that work together to make the practice of driving more comfortable, simple, and safe. These systems rely on a variety of sensors to help them determine what actions should be taken to help ensure the safety of the driver, their vehicle, and surroundings.  

Common ADAS feaures include:

Brings the vehicle to a halt when an obstacle is detected

Monitors your blind spot and alerts the driver of obstacles in their presence via audible, visual, or haptic steering wheel cues

 Forces an emergency stop when the brake pedal is not fully engaged

Controls the vehicle’s speed and distance to forward vehicles 

Helps prevent pedestrian accidents by alerting the driver to the presence of a pedestrian in front of the vehicle’s path 

 Improves visibility at night by adjusting the lamp’s brightness in low-light conditions 

Alerts the driver to a potential threat when their car is about to veer out of a lane 

ADAS Calibrations for Auto & Collision Repair Facilities

The safety benefits of ADAS are undeniable, but so are the challenges they create for collision and auto repair facilities. Less than one degree of misalignment is enough to create problems with ADAS systems.   

ADAS Calibration ensures that a vehicle is ready to operate safely.  Proper calibration guarantees that the vehicle’s sensors are adjusted, aligned, and communicating.  Each calibration performed undergoes rigorous testing that ensures ADAS systems are functioning properly.

Expert Calibration Technicians

When a vehicle is repaired, ADAS components are often moved, removed, or replaced. These actions will not always trigger a warning light and/or diagnostic code, and most often cannot be seen with the naked eye. Our calibration technicians are trained to identify issues with sensors and alignment. They follow a 16-step calibration workflow that accounts for OEM procedures and best practices. Thorough testing is done to ensure that all ADAS systems are completely functional before delivering a vehicle back to your facility.  

Our Dedicated ADAS Facility

Our facility includes 4 full-service calibration bays and one alignment bay. (Largest calibration facility in the Midwest) This allows us to quickly and accurately examine vehicles. Each bay is equipped with a certified floor that exceeds OEM requirements (OEM is +/- 10mm over 60’ ours is +/- 5mm), ample and controllable lighting.  Having a controlled environment to perform calibrations is essential.  This means no interference from obstructions you would find in normal shop environments and no interference from environmental obstructions like sunlight, glare, wind, or rain.  All of this affects calibration results. 

The size of our facility allows us to provide our partners with short cycle times, delivering vehicles in an efficient manner that adds to your profits.  

Our Calibration Process

Accuracy is our top priority. Which is why we’ve developed a process that ensures a vehicle is ready and safe to operate. Each vehicle that enters our facility undergoes robust testing in the shop and on the road.
