Windshield camera recalibration

Advanced safety systems recalibration services

Is there a camera connected to your windshield? The forward-facing camera is part of your vehicle's advanced safety systems, sometimes called advanced driver assistance safety systems (ADAS). These systems are designed to keep you and your vehicle safe on the road.

Why do I need advanced safety systems recalibration?

The rise of ADAS

When damage occurs and you need a windshield replacement, nearly all vehicle manufacturers require that the camera connected to your windshield be recalibrated.

For the camera and the advanced safety systems to continue to work properly, Safelite AutoGlass® can often complete the windshield replacement and safety system recalibration in a single appointment.

More and more vehicles have advanced safety systems, and nearly all of those vehicle brands require a safety system recalibration after a windshield replacement. Safelite technicians are experienced with the recalibration process and will help ensure your vehicle continues to keep you safe on the road.

Examples of ADAS

These systems protect drivers through a range of capabilities, creating a circular safety net around the vehicle to help reduce the risk of collisions. The forward-facing cameras enable advanced safety features to aid and warn drivers on the road.

The safety systems are designed to work together to enhance vehicle safety by alerting the driver to potential problems and avoiding collisions – they can aid, warn and assist.  Some examples include automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, collision avoidance, and more. If so equipped, the camera’s proper operation is a critical component of your vehicle's advanced safety system.

If you need a windshield replacement, Safelite will replace your windshield and recalibrate your forward-facing camera.

Types of windshield camera recalibration

Dynamic recalibration

Requires driving the vehicle at a set speed on well-marked roads to recalibrate the camera system.  Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.  

Static recalibration

Requires a specific target image mounted on a fixture in front of the vehicle during the recalibration process.  Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

The ADAS process with Safelite

Due to the importance of your vehicle's advanced safety system, you need a trusted expert with the capability of recalibration to ensure your advanced safety features are operating at their optimal level.

When you make an appointment with Safelite, you’ll be alerted if the vehicle needs recalibration services after a replacement. At the time of your appointment, a Safelite technician trained in recalibration will complete the recalibration required by your vehicle manufacturer.  Different manufacturers require either a static or dynamic process and for some vehicles, both are required.
