  • ADAS Calibration Tools

Almost all modern cars come fully fitted with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). These advanced safety sensors gather information about vehicle surroundings and provide safety warnings to assist the driver. Certain ADAS can even use sensor data to know when to take temporary control over a vehicle’s braking or steering, to ensure driver safety.

As with all sensors, vehicle ADAS sensors are only as accurate as they are calibrated to be. Regularly recalibrating a vehicles’ ADAS is vital to ensure the system is safe and effective.

At Supalign, we offer professional ADAS calibration tools, including Analog ADAS technology and Digital ADAS technology. ADAS calibration can be a great revenue driver for your garage or workshop and can be bolted on as an extra service alongside wheel alignment. Workshops offering ADAS calibrations must carry out full wheel alignment before adjusting its ADAS.

Our ADAS calibration tools work seamlessly alongside any of our computerised wheel aligners. Some of our ADAS systems are even compatible with the existing wheel alignment systems, get in touch for more information.

ADAS Calibration FAQs

What is ADAS?

ADAS stands for advanced assistance systems, which are a system of safety networks that scan the road ahead in real time and alert the driver of any possible hazards. Some ADAS systems can even take control of steering and braking, if necessary, to ensure driver safety.

Do all cars have ADAS?

ADAS are fitted to the majority of vehicles manufactured since 2016. You will know if your car has ADAS as the warning light for the system will flash bright red on the dashboard.

What are the 5 levels off ADAS?

ADAS Level 0 – No automation: where the driver is entirely responsible for managing the vehicle, including steering, braking, accelerating, and slowing down.

ADAS Level 1 – Driver assistance: automated systems can take control of the vehicle in specified situations, but not entirely. Adaptive cruise control is an example of ADAS Level 1 automation.

ADAS Level 2 – Semi-automated: Several assistance systems are frequently coupled here so that the vehicle may conduct individual driving movements, such as parking or navigating stop-and-go traffic, independently. Lane departure warning or distance warning is an example of ADAS Level 2 automation.

ADAS Level 3 – Conditional automation: Drivers at Level 3 can detach from the process of driving, but only in certain circumstances. Traffic jam pilot features are part of ADAS Level 3. This is where the system takes over during a traffic jam – the car will accelerate, steer, and brake, but ask the driver to regain control of the vehicle once the traffic jam has cleared.

ADAS Level 4 – High automation: At this level, the autonomous driving system of the vehicle is completely ideal for monitoring the driving environment and performing all driving functions. Fully automated driving occurs at ADAS Level 4.

ADAS Level 5 – Full automation: vehicles with ADAS Level 5 require no human assistance in controlling the vehicle. These vehicles tend to not have steering wheels or pedals, as the driver is essentially a passenger.

When should a vehicle's ADAS be re-calibrated?

ADAS calibrations should be completed any time a vehicle's sensors are disrupted. For example, if a windshield is cracked, the heads-up display and rain sensors need to be recalibrated. If a vehicle is sideswiped, the mirrors and lane departure warnings need to be recalibrated.

It is good practice to have your ADAS system checked and recalibrated when your vehicle is brought into the garage after an accident. Most garages offer ADAS calibration tools as part of their services.
