At BP Rolls Automotive we have invested in calibration equipment and training, working with Hella Gutmann and monitoring Thatcham Research Centre on the ADAS Approved Code of Practice.
As modern vehicles are evolving more safety features are now being integrated into them. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, ADAS, describe the advanced features now incorporated into many modern vehicles. It is predicted that more than 40% of new vehicles will have at least two types of driver assistance systems fitted as standard by 2020.
These systems are rear view cameras to aid parking, systems that evaluate the vehicle’s surroundings and warn the driver of hazards (Lane Departure Warning) and systems that actually take control of the vehicle, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking. Other included systems are – Adaptive cruise control – Adaptive head lights – Blind spot monitors – Pedestrian monitors – Proximity monitors – Driver drowsiness detection – Collision avoidance system – Forward collision warning These systems typically operate through a combination of sensors, cameras, radar and lidar and image processing.
When is calibration required? The vehicle has had a Wheel alignment or and a Geometry change. If the windscreen has been replaced. If the camera has developed a fault or been disconnected or moved. Vehicle manufacturers state that an ADAS calibration should be performed to ensure that when the vehicle is back on the road the ADAS safety feature is operating correctly.
No more long dealer booking in times, this service caters for the private individual, and businesses – windscreen fitters, body shops, wheel alignment centers.
