At Jack’s, safety is central to everything we do. Every single one of our technicians is nationally certified by the Auto Glass Safety Council—and our team is trained in one of the most critical modern vehicle technologies: ADAS, and the windshield camera calibration that makes it work.

 

What are ADAS and Windshield Calibration?

ADAS (short for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) is a network of common next-gen safety features that are becoming more and more standard-and more advanced-in vehicles every year.

These features utilize sensors, computer imaging, lidar, radar, cameras, and other devices to create a safer, more optimal driving experience.

Such features include:

Blind Spot Monitors

Automotive Night Vision

Pedestrian Detection

Lane-Departure Warnings

Collision Monitoring

Parking Sensors

Why Is ADAS So Important?

Any type of automated assistance to a driver qualifies as ADAS technology. While having certain features like automated parking or adaptive cruise control can simply make driving easier, the primary function of any ADAS tool is to increase highway safety.

More than 2 million people are injured or disabled in traffic incidents in the U.S. every year—and another 35,000 of those result in deaths.

Some industry professionals estimate that increasing vehicle-to-vehicle communication alone could cut more than ½ million accidents per year, saving innumerable lives, tax dollars and insurance expenses.

What does the ADAS calibration process include?

While the process can vary from vehicle to vehicle, every windshield calibration requires specialized tools and extensive know-how. What looks like a simple windshield on the outside can in fact be an elaborate piece of technical equipment, with built-in sensors, heaters, noise reduction layers, strategically placed tinting, and more. At Jack’s, our ADAS expert technicians have the tools and experience to ensure your windshield is calibrated correctly.

If you have your windshield replaced or your vehicle undergoes other related work, these systems must be professionally calibrated to safely and effectively do their job–and not every shop is equipped with the tech for the task. But at Jack’s, we’ve got your back.

Why Do I Need Professional Windshield Camera Calibration?

Many ADAS features rely on a camera system in or near the windshield. Any work that moves the camera by as little as one degree can drastically alter how the vehicle’s safety systems operate. Simply put: If the camera’s angle shifts, it can’t see objects in the area it was designed to monitor. Windshield calibration starts with top-tier glass. At Jack’s, we use original, factory model—or better—glass for all vehicles. Think of it like a new pair of eyeglasses. In ADAS, the windshield is the lens, and the camera is the eye. If your glasses have even a slightly warped lens or imperfection, you won’t be able to see clearly—just as you won’t if you don’t have the right prescription in your lenses to begin with. This holds especially true when it comes to windshield calibration.  Our pro technicians have mastered the two best windshield camera calibration tools on the market today: Opti-Aim and Autel’s MaxiSys ADAS. Together, these cutting-edge solutions offer millimeter-level calibration accuracy—and, most importantly, they offer peace of mind that when you need your vehicle’s safety systems most, they’ll be there for you.
