Designed to provide a safe and comfortable drive, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are increasingly common in the latest generation of vehicles.
Wheel alignment has become a normal part of repairing and maintaining vehicles – if the geometry falls out of tolerance, the car may not drive correctly and the tyres might wear out quickly.
The same principle applies to ADAS, which is little more than a camera and radar system, often mounted in the windscreen and front grill area. This equipment monitors a range of activities such as changing speed limits, white lines, active cruise control and emergency braking systems (ABS).
After a repair that could affect the alignment of the camera and radar systems, it is important to ensure the vehicle cameras and radars are working correctly and that they are correctly aligned. For example, a frontal impact might misalign the radar unit and a windscreen replacement can misalign the camera.
We have invested in a digital ADAS system which allows us to test and, if necessary, re-align the driver assistance systems on your vehicle.
