Replacing Windshields in ADAS Enabled Vehicles


Advanced Training

The repair of vehicles with ADAS is a complex process requiring advanced training and knowledge of the specific technology and sensors used in each make and model.



As a result of the sensors interactions with the windshield space, replacing windshields in ADAS equipped vehicles will most likely require recalibration of the systems.


Dangers to Drivers

Failure to recalibrate the windshields could result in inaccurate hazard detection or warning, which could be dangerous to drivers.


Advanced Equipment

Knowing when and how to recalibrate properly and safely takes experience, knowledge, and advanced equipment.



Today, most independent auto glass repairers are not experienced, equipped, or have the resources to complete this critical component of a windshield replacement.
