As the leading windscreen replacement company in the UAE and Middle East region we have invested heavily in ADAS calibration technology now available at our workshop, meaning we can provide windscreen replacement and camera calibration at the same time.

Auto Glass Middle East LLC is working closely with our UK partners, Master Auto Glass Ltd, on an ADAS Approved Code of Practice which is currently out for consultation and will set out how calibration should be carried out to ensure the safety features continue to work as intended, making roads safer for all users.



ADAS Windscreen Calibration FAQ’s

ADAS includes a wide range of safety features for vehicles such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB), lane departure warning (LDW), lane keep assist, night vision cameras and adaptive lighting. By 2020, it is predicted that more than 40% of new vehicles will have at least two types of driver assistance systems fitted as standard so the need for calibration will continue to grow.

Most of these ADAS features rely on windscreen-mounted cameras in order to operate effectively. So if a windscreen needs replacing then these cameras will also have to be calibrated to ensure the safety systems continue to work as intended.

Vehicles are currently making the switch from autonomous driving to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) which ensure increased vehicle safety and better driving.  ADAS systems can alert drivers to potential problems on the roads and can even take control of the vehicle when necessary – applying the emergency brakes if the vehicle was to collide with anything, for example.

If you have an ADAS system fitted, you may need to have it calibration from time to time – if there is a chance that your camera’s view has been slightly altered, for example. Circumstances that will require a recalibration include:

• After a windscreen replacement
• If the dashboard shows a fault code
• If the camera has been disconnected
• Change of suspension
• Change of wheel alignment

While this is an excellent step for the motoring industry and will ensure our roads are safer for everyone, it does mean that windscreen replacements are about to get slightly more complex to ensure that the new technology is calibrated correctly.

If you’re in need of a calibration for your ADAS system, you will need to ensure you are using a fully trained expert capable of carrying out the task correctly – this is not a service that all windscreen companies will be able to carry out, as only certain technicians with a high enough accreditation have the training available to them. Rely on the services of experts, like ourselves here at Auto Glass Middle East LLC.
