Advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, have become more common in new vehicles on the market. Designed to enhance driver safety, this technology uses sensors, cameras and dash displays to increase range of vision, recognise hazards, provide warning signals, automate parking, engage emergency braking, detect driver drowsiness and more.
Given the precise nature of these functions, it’s easy to see how important it is for ADAS sensors to remain properly calibrated. Sensors can be knocked out of position by collisions or other impacts to the vehicle, as well as by vehicle modifications and adjustments. This can make them unreliable, distracting the driver or even causing a serious accident.
