Newer vehicles have a forward-facing camera that is connected to the windshield; this camera one component of your vehicle's advanced safety systems. These systems are also known as advanced driver assistance safety systems (ADAS). The main reason for these systems is designed to keep you, your passengers and your vehicle safe on the road at all times.

Why would I need safety systems recalibration?

Usually, when you need your windshield replaced, most vehicle manufactures require that the camera connected to your windshield be recalibrated, this is so that the safety systems work correctly. Clear Auto Glass will be able to complete the safety system recalibration at the same time as your windshield replacement.

Types of safety recalibration

There are two types of safety recalibration, and in this section, we will take a look at them. The first one is called dynamic recalibration; this requires that we drive the vehicle on well-marked roads at a set speed to recalibrate the camera system. This safety recalibration is done by a qualified technician who is also in possession of a valid driving permit. The dynamic recalibration will take just over an hour to complete. The next safety recalibration is called static recalibration: this requires a specific target that is mounted on a fixture in front of your vehicle during the recalibration process. This recalibration will also take an hour or more to complete. The times are just estimates and will depend on the make and the model of your vehicle.
