When is ADAS calibration necessary?
Several things can throw off the ADAS system, forcing you to seek calibration. A minor fender bender, auto accident, and even regular car servicing can affect a sensor’s functioning.
Ace Auto Body Inc. are the best auto shop in Greater Hartford that offers static and dynamic ADAS calibration.
- Static calibration
As the name suggests, technicians perform static calibration when a car is stationary and in a controlled environment.
- Dynamic calibration
Technicians perform dynamic calibrations while driving at certain speeds and under specific conditions. Our trained team knows to set clear parameters that help accurately calibrate misaligned sensors.
We have the tools and qualified team to handle the calibration with the care it deserves.
Conducting the calibration
Carrying out a successful calibration is no minor task that any mechanic can work out. They need intensive training and precision tools to pull it off. Even regular service such as wheel alignment can misalign ADAS.
Whether its static or dynamic ADAS, these are some of the calibration jobs Ace Auto Body Inc. will handle:
- Adaptive cruise control: Calibrate the cruise control sensors by aiming the radar sensors at a reflective pyramid-shaped target.
- Lane departure system: A staple of self-driving vehicles, such a calibration may involve measuring devices, laser tools, calibration mats, and corner reflectors.
- Around-view camera: These cameras are responsible for keeping the vehicle aware of its surroundings. The mechanic will place patterned mats around the vehicle to initiate the calibration.
- Pedestrian automatic emergency braking system: Vital as a braking aid to prevent running over a pedestrian if the driver fails to hit the brakes.
- Steering angle: Involves lining the steering wheel straight ahead and using the scan tool to calibrate the sensor signal.
To guarantee a successful calibration, Ace Auto Body Inc. mechanics will place the car on a flat surface, inflate the tires to the recommended pressure, unload any heavy objects, and use the correct spare tire.
Preparing the car adequately before starting the calibration is vital to success. It is a highly sensitive process that requires experience and precision to accomplish. Thankfully, Ace Auto Body Inc., based in Hartford, has the mechanics to execute the job.
The calibration might require replacing the windshield since most manufacturers mount most of the sensors, radars, and cameras behind or on them.
