ADAS Calibration Services
ADAS Leicester are specialists in the calibration and adjustment of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Our highly sensitive and technologically advanced equipment allows us to detect even the slightest deviation from the recommended manufacturer settings on your car’s ADAS.
Manufacturers are incorporating Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) into their latest cars to provide superior safety when driving. ADAS systems are becoming so common that Ford is now fitting them to all of the Fiestas they make as standard.
A large amount of the small sensors used to detect a range of potential hazards including lane changing or an automatic emergency braking system are fitted into the windscreen. Any unforeseen alteration in the angles of the sensors can reduce the effectiveness of the ADAS system. A regular recalibration of the sensors is advisable to ensure the safety measures continue to function correctly but is essential that recalibration is completed after bodywork repairs or windscreen replacement. Failure to readjust the sensors could result in an accident when approaching oncoming traffic or drifting out of lane. Realignment is a relatively quick process that uses specialised software and equipment to ensure the adjustments are precisely tuned to the manufacturer’s specifications.
Car Radar Calibration
Car radar calibration services include the regular realignment of the sensors that are positioned around the entire vehicle to provide clear, all-round vision and improved safety. General wear and tear or repairs to the vehicle can cause the radar mechanism to need readjustment. Adaptive cruise control and automatic distance detection are accurately realigned to ensure the radar system can detect obstacles or traffic at distances of up to 250 metres. Close range distance radar is readjusted to ensure accuracy during parking manoeuvres. Additional safety feature adjustments include pedestrian or obstacle detection and autonomous emergency braking. Radar sensors that provide assistance when driving during low light levels and warn of hazards in the driver’s blind spot are accurately realigned for reassurance and safety.Contact Us
Everyday driving incidents such as colliding with kerbsides or potholes can easily unbalance your wheels. Regular assessments of a vehicle’s wheel alignment system ensure the steering mechanism, suspension and fuel consumption continue to operate with optimum efficiency. The easiest way to tell if your wheels need aligning is uneven wear on either side of your tyres. If you spot this then you should bring your vehicle in for an alignment.
A combination of sophisticated software and laser technology repositions the alignment of the wheels to correspond exactly with the manufacturer’s specifications of each model. The camber or tilting of each wheel is the most common displacement. Realignment significantly reduces premature ageing on the shoulders of the tyres and can even improve handling. With the use of high-definition imaging, misalignments such as the thrust lines and casters of each wheel can be repositioned to accurately restore the balance of the vehicle’s wheels.
