What is ADAS or “Advanced Driver Assistance Systems”?

ADAS Systems offer drivers more control over their vehicles and provide them with more information about their immediate surroundings to help aid them while they’re parking and driving. ADAS includes everything from rear cross-traffic sensors to adaptive cruise control. These systems come standard in most newer cars, trucks and SUVs on the market. ADAS technology is constantly evolving in order to help improve vehicle safety and assist drivers with things like monitoring blind spots, pulling into tight parking spaces, and merging lanes on the highway. Properly adjusting these systems requires technology and training that many shops choose not to acquire due to the extra costs and hassle associated with ADAS calibration equipment. 

Why is ADAS calibration important? 

There are ADAS sensors all over your vehicle. Drivers today trust their vehicle sensors to drive safely on the road. Vehicle sensors are your extra set of eyes on the road. If your vehicle is in a crash, needs maintenance, or needs a part replaced, it’s likely that one of your sensors is impacted. Any time a sensor is disrupted, it needs to be recalibrated to restore itself to its normal function. If calibration is not done correctly, certain features on your car won’t work.

Is ADAS calibration required when I bring my vehicle to Truman’s?
