What is ADAS?
Whether your car has adaptive high beams, a collision detection system or autonomous night vision, these are all classed as Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are now fitted as standard across a wide range of Volkswagen Group cars (Audi, Seat, Skoda & VW). It is a safety-critical requirement when calibrating vehicles fitted with ADAS that it has been carried out to the manufacturer’s specifications using approved tools and equipment.
Examples of ADAS systems include: Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist); Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC); the Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist); Active Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist).
After windscreen replacements drivers must ensure they have had the radar in the windscreen checked and recalibrated otherwise the system will not function correctly and could cause the vehicle warning systems to malfunction.
After an accident, ADAS systems should be checked and calibrated to ensure they will work as intended. C&P Panelcraft has invested in ADAS equipment and have trained mechanical, electrical and trim (MET) technicians so that we can offer this service to our customers.
