Windshield Camera Recalibration

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.

  • Blind Spot Monitoring

    Some rear collision warning and blind spot monitoring systems use small radar sensors mounted under the side view mirrors, behind the rear bumper cover or even in the taillights. Bumper- and taillight-mounted sensors may also provide rear cross-traffic alerts when backing out of parking spaces.

  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert

    Designed to alert you of cars that are nearing your path when in reverse. Blind spot monitoring sensors enable the driver to safely reverse when obstacles obstruct the drivers view from behind. These sensors are typically mounted on the bumper, taillight, or rear window.

  • Lane Departure Warning

    Using a camera located on the windshield, typically mounted to the rear view mirror, sensors will work to recognize lane markers. If the sensor detects that you are too close to the left or right side lane markings a warning light, a vibration, sound, and/or steering assistance will be activated.

  • Steer Assist

    A steering torque helps assists the driver in keeping the vehicle in the center of the lane when driving on straight roads or in slight bends. This system works with the lane departure sensors to recognize lane markers.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control

    Using radar sensors located behind the grill, bumper, or windshield, the vehicle can automatically adjusts the speed of your car to match the speed of the car in front of you. If the car in front of you accelerates ahead of you, or moves out of the way, the system can automatically accelerate to your set speed and slow down to the speed of the car in front of your vehicle if need be. 

  • Fully Automatic Parking Assist

    Sensors detect gaps in-between cars in the area where you want to park. Parking assistance can help fit a car into a smaller space than most drivers could navigate regularly. Multiple sensors, mounted in the bumpers, mirrors, and glass, communicate with each other to successfully navigate the vehicle into the spot. 

  • Remote Parking

    The stress of parking is can be relieved with remote parking. Using a receiver inside your key, the vehicle can be called to the location of the driver. With the assistance of multiple sensors, the vehicle can automatically avoid any obstacles, and drive the vehicle securely into the space. And return the car to the driver. 

Why Windshield Camera Needs Calibration

Vehicles are becoming more advanced every day, enhancing the way we drive and keeping us safer on the road. Consumer demand, changing legislation, and momentum from the NHTSA is driving the growth of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems or ADAS. Vehicles are increasingly being equip with forward facing camera technology like Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control, etc. These changes are having a dramatic effect on the price of auto glass and how auto glass is installed.

When a vehicle is equipped with forward facing cameras, most vehicle manufacturers have a position statement about these features once a windshield has been replaced. These statements indicate how the manufacturer requires their vehicles to be repaired to ensure the continued and correct operation of these safety systems. Windshield Pros North has invested in the training and tools to provide re-calibration of these new ADAS systems. If for any reason we are unable to complete the re-calibration, we will assist with any referral or insurance approvals that may be necessary.

If you need a windshield replacement, Windshield Pros-North will replace your windshield and re-calibrate your vehicle’s camera supported advanced safety system*.
