ADAS

ADAS from Phantom Car Body Repairs | Covering Camberley, Farnborough, Fleet, Sandhurst, Yateley & Bagshot

ADAS stands for Advanced Driver Assistance System. These systems are designed to help motorists make their driving experience safer and easier. Most cars made in the last seven years have some sort of ADAS fitted to them, such as emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, or lane keeping assist, as well as many more.

These systems rely on various types of sensors so the car can detect its surroundings and make decisions on your behalf if it feels necessary to take out the human error aspect and increase safety. These systems must be recalibrated if any of these sensors are disturbed during repair. For example, a radar that is out of alignment by 2 degrees is 8 meters out of alignment at its maximum operating range and may not detect potential hazards correctly, putting the occupants in danger.

Recalibration is necessary if the vehicle has had any of the following alterations:

  • phantom icon

    Wheel alignment – this could potentially change the thrust angle of the car, and the forward-facing sensors on current settings could be looking at a slightly different angle.

  • phantom icon

    The bumper has been removed where the radar sensors are.

  • phantom icon

    Windscreen replacement – the camera module will need to be checked to make sure that it's correctly viewing the road ahead.
