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.
If you need a windshield replacement, Bill’s Glass will replace your windshield and recalibrate your vehicle’s camera supported advanced safety system* typically in a single appointment.
*Recalibration may not be available for all vehicles or at all locations
More and more vehicles have advanced safety systems, and nearly all of those vehicle brands require a safety system recalibration after a windshield replacement. Bill’s Glass technicians are experienced with the recalibration process and will help ensure your vehicle continues to protect you.
These systems protect drivers through a range of capabilities, creating a circular safety net around the vehicle to help reduce the risk of collisions. The front-facing cameras enable these advanced safety systems to aid and warn drivers on the road. Bill’s Glass remains at the forefront of safe auto glass replacement by investing in the technology to ensure your safety systems are operating properly.
The safety systems are designed to work together to enhance vehicle safety by alerting the driver to potential problems and avoiding collisions – they can aid, warn and assist. Some examples include traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, lane centering, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, collision avoidance, and more. If so equipped, the camera’s proper operation is a critical component of your vehicle’s advanced safety system.
When you make an appointment with Bill’s Glass, you’ll be alerted if the vehicle needs recalibration services after a replacement. At the time of your appointment, a trained Bill’s Glass technician will replace your windshield and complete the recalibration required by your vehicle. Different manufacturers require either a Static or Dynamic process and for some vehicles, both are required. Most insurance companies will cover payment for the recalibration service.
Types of windshield camera recalibration
- Dynamic Recalibration – Requires driving the vehicle at a set speed on well-marked roads to recalibrate the camera system. Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
- Static Recalibration – Requires a specific target image mounted on a fixture in front of the vehicle during the recalibration process. Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
