ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are becoming increasingly common in modern vehicles, and they rely on various sensors and cameras to function properly. ADAS calibration is the process of adjusting these sensors and cameras to ensure that they are accurately detecting and measuring the surrounding environment.
Here are some common myths and facts about ADAS calibration:
Myth: ADAS calibration is only necessary after an accident or collision. Fact: While ADAS calibration may be necessary after an accident, it is also recommended after any repair or replacement work that affects the vehicle’s sensors or camera systems. This includes replacing windshields, mirrors, bumpers, or any other components that are part of the ADAS system.
Myth: ADAS calibration is a one-time process that does not need to be repeated. Fact: ADAS calibration may need to be repeated periodically to ensure that the sensors and cameras are accurately detecting and measuring the environment. Factors such as temperature changes, wear and tear, and component aging can affect the accuracy of the sensors and cameras over time.
Myth: ADAS calibration can be done by anyone with basic automotive knowledge. Fact: ADAS calibration is a specialized process that requires specific equipment and training. It is important to have the calibration performed by a qualified technician who has been trained and certified to perform ADAS calibration.
Here are the steps involved in ADAS calibration:
- Identify the type of ADAS system in the vehicle, as well as the specific sensors and cameras that require calibration.
- Set up the calibration equipment according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
- Adjust the sensors and cameras to ensure that they are properly aligned and calibrated.
- Verify that the calibration is accurate and that the ADAS system is functioning properly.
- Document the calibration process, including any adjustments made and the results of the calibration.
ADAS calibration is an important process that helps to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the vehicle’s safety systems. It is important to have the calibration performed by a qualified technician who has been trained and certified to perform ADAS calibration, and to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for calibration frequency and procedures.

Thank you for informing us that ADAS calibration refers to the process of adjusting vehicle sensors and cameras to ensure that they detect and measure the surrounding environment accurately. My cousin had a terrible accident last week and had to send his car out for collision repairs, and since he can’t go out of the hospital yet, he asked me to get his car calibrated once repairs are done. I’ll keep this in mind while I look for an ADAS calibration center for my cousin’s car soon.
