• ADAS Calibration (Andover, Hampshire)

ADAS Calibration

It is predicted that by 2010, more than 40% of new vehicles will have at least two types of advanced driver assistance systems fitted as standard so we have already future proofed our workshop to accommodate this. BP Rolls are the only garage in the Andover area to offer ADAS Calibration.


ADAS Calibration (Hampshire)

What is ADAS?

Many modern vehicles are built with these intelligent systems to help assist motorists on the road. Adaptive high beams, collision detection system or autonomous night vision, these are all classed as Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems. Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, or ADAS, is a term used to collectively describe these smart features. ADAS includes simple applications such as rear view cameras to aid parking to more complicated systems like Lane Departure Warning (LDW) that can detect a vehicle’s surroundings. There are also more advanced systems that can actually take some control of the vehicle, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).

Why does it need calibrating?

ADAS systems rely on a combination of cameras and sensors to work as intended. Following any kind of collision, either major accident or even a minor kerb bump, or windscreen replacement, some of these cameras can get knocked out of place and this could have a significant impact on the functionality of an ADAS feature, which could be the difference between avoiding an accident or not.

In order to ensure your vehicle’s ADAS technology is working correctly when it’s back on the road, we strongly recommend getting an ADAS calibration after a any of the following events:

    • Major/minor collision
    • Kerb impact
    • Replacement windscreen

      Preparing for ADAS calibration

      Here’s a breakdown of how to prepare your vehicles before you arrive for your ADAS calibration at BP Rolls Automotive.

      Remove any additional loading: In order for us to carry out a successful ADAS calibration, we need to make sure that your vehicle has no additional loading. This includes fixed loading such as external racking, roof racks and canopies wherever possible.

      Full tank of fuel: Is is advised that vehicles should have a full tank of fuel when carrying out a camera calibration. This is to help make sure that the sensors are calibrated accurately and to the manufacturer’s required standard.

      Full size wheels: In order for us to carry out a successful ADAS calibration, your vehicle needs to be fitted with 4 full-sized wheels. Each wheel needs to have their tyre pressures in line with the manufacturer’s specification. Information regarding tyre pressures can be found in your vehicle handbook.
