Technology is constantly improving, and although you may not be aware of all the many interesting features in newer vehicles, they are included throughout. One overarching type is ADAS, or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. This includes a key piece of technology built into your windshield. So if your Hyundai has ADAS and you need your windshield replaced, you’ll need to know why recalibration is so important. Our certified technicians at Vision Hyundai Henrietta in Rochester, New York, have the expertise and tools necessary for this complex service, so we can get you back on the road and driving safely.
ADAS, also known as advanced safety systems, are built-in features in newer models designed to keep you and your vehicle safe by creating a virtual “safety net” around your Hyundai to prevent collisions. These systems automate safety by warning you of potential problems – such as pedestrian detection, lane departure, and forward-collision warnings – and even assist your driving with features such as automatic braking and collision avoidance. These features require the use of a forward-facing camera, the proper orientation of which is critical to the functionality of your ADAS.
You may be wondering what all of this has to do with replacing your windshield. The front-facing camera and sensors are connected to your front windshield. When your windshield is replaced, these cameras and sensors must be reintegrated into your system. This critical component of your vehicle’s ADAS must be positioned precisely, because if the camera or sensors are off by just a millimeter, it can throw off your Hyundai’s entire ADAS system. A few millimeters can be the equivalent of a few feet to your camera.
Following the replacement of your windshield, camera and sensors, our certified technicians will test and thoroughly check your vehicle’s ADAS to ensure the features are working properly. This is what is referred to as an ADAS recalibration. The process for recalibration can vary between models, and can include either dynamic or static recalibration. Dynamic recalibration requires the vehicle to be driven at a set speed to recalibrate the system. Static recalibration utilizes a target image placed in front of the vehicle. Both take approximately one hour to complete.
These calibrations following a windshield replacement require specialized training, expertise, and tools, all of which Vision Hyundai Henrietta is proud to offer.
