What Is Calibration?
Calibration is the process of returning a vehicle's ADAS to original equipment specifications after a major collision or after a windshield have been installed.
There are two forms of ADAS calibration, Dynamic & Static. The exact procedures vary significantly from one vehicle make/model to the next. In all cases, the automaker’s specified procedures and instructions must be precisely followed.
Calibration is essential after a new glass installation - particularly a windshield with a camera mounted to it - to stay current with existing features and to certify that the ADAS features continue to function properly despite having been moved during windshield installation.
General descriptions of these processes are provided in the Dynamic & Static section and in the video on our site.
