Driver safety system windshield camera recalibration services
Is there a camera mounted on or near your windshield? The front-facing cameras are part of your vehicle's advanced driver assistance safety system (ADAS) and are designed to protect you and your vehicle on the road.
When damage occurs and you need a windshield replacement, nearly all automakers specify that these camera systems need to be recalibrated.
For the camera and the safety system to continue to work properly, Safelite® AutoGlass typically completes the windshield replacement and safety system recalibration in one 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 protect you.
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 front-facing cameras enable these advanced safety systems 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 traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, lane centering, automatic emergency braking, 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 vehicle's camera supported advanced safety system*.

Types of windshield camera recalibration
Due to the importance of your vehicle's advanced safety system, you need a trusted expert with the capability of recalibration to ensure these camera enabled safety systems 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. Different manufacturers require either a static or dynamic process and for some vehicles, both are required.
- 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.
