Calibration is the process of returning a vehicle’s ADAS to OEM specifications.
Calibration is necessary after a new glass installation, particularly a windshield with a camera mounted to it, to ensure that the ADAS features continue to function properly despite having been moved during installation.

A vehicle’s computer relies on the cameras/radars/lasers used by the ADAS being in the correct alignment to function properly, but does not automatically adjust them itself.
Calibration guides the vehicle’s computer & ensures these systems are working properly.
When a windshield is replaced, the camera should be removed from the bracket & unplugged from the car. After the replacement is completed, the camera needs to be reattached & re-calibrated. If this is not performed by the installer, consumers will have to go to the dealer to have the vehicle calibrated*
*Even a camera that has not been unplugged from the car needs to be re-calibrated to ensure proper functionality of the ADAS features.

If a car’s ADAS is not properly calibrated, the system may not function safely.
If the cameras/radars/lasers on the vehicle are off by even a few millimeters they may not give accurate readings and the system may not function properly.
