ADAS Calibration 

As the demand for safer driving conditions increases, automakers have responded by integrating Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). These systems play a crucial role in enhancing driver safety through various functionalities. Modern automobiles are equipped with numerous sensing devices that serve as the eyes and ears of the vehicle, enabling drivers to perceive changing traffic conditions in real time. ADAS systems empower drivers to maintain speed and distance from other vehicles, receive alerts for lane departures, and be warned of nearby pedestrians, among other features.

You might wonder about the types of available ADAS systems and how they operate. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems vary in style and function among different automakers.

ADAS encompasses various critical functions, such as lane departure warnings, automatic dimming of headlights, and rain-triggered wiper activation, among others. Exploring common ADAS systems provides insight into their role in enhancing driver safety.

Understanding the effectiveness of these safety systems and their potential to save lives underscores the necessity of recalibrating them following a windshield replacement.

Lane Departure Warning System

Accidents caused by lane departures, particularly at high speeds on highways, can be among the most severe. Lane Departure Warning Systems (LDWS) alert drivers with sounds or vibrations when they veer out of their lane without signaling. Some vehicles also feature Advanced Lane Departure Warning Systems (ALDWS) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA). If the driver fails to respond, LKA intervenes by guiding the vehicle back to the center of the lane. According to a 2016 report by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), LDWS reduced head-on collisions and lane departure accidents by 11% and decreased injuries resulting from accidents by 21%.

Automatic Emergency Breaking (AEB)

Smart braking systems are another prevalent form of ADAS, offering crucial safety features. Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) notifies drivers to take corrective actions; if the driver fails to respond, the AEB system automatically applies brakes to avert an accident. A less potent variant of AEB is Forward Collision Warning (FCW), which monitors the distance between your vehicle and the one ahead but does not initiate emergency braking independently.

Adaptive Cruise Control

You're probably familiar with traditional cruise control, a standard feature in vehicles for years. Adaptive Cruise Control (ADCC) is a modern and improved version, maintaining throttle engagement while your foot is off the pedal, offering enhanced comfort during long highway drives until you need to slow down. ADCC keeps a safe distance between your vehicle and others by adjusting speed according to traffic, allowing you to focus on safe steering while cruising. With ADCC, there's no need to manually re-engage cruise settings after applying brakes, reducing driver distraction.

Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking 

Few things enhance vehicle safety like one that prevents pedestrian collisions. Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB) operates similarly to the aforementioned AEB systems, automatically applying brakes if an imminent crash with a pedestrian is detected and the driver hasn't taken preventive action.

State-of-the-art automotive technology translates to a safer driving environment by significantly reducing various types of accidents. According to a study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the implementation of advanced safety features has led to substantial decreases in many accident categories. For instance, single-vehicle accidents, side swipes, and head-on collisions have seen an 11% decrease due to lane departure warning systems. Additionally, other common crash types have experienced significant reductions, with improvements of 50% or more in some cases. The most notable improvement has been observed in rear automatic braking systems, which have led to a remarkable 78% reduction in collisions.

The effectiveness of these systems is backed by data. Lane departure warning systems, for example, have been shown to reduce rates of single-vehicle, sideswipe, and head-on crashes of all severities by 11%, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Moreover, research indicates that these systems lower rates of injury crashes of the same types by 21%. As of 2020, vehicle manufacturers aiming for a 5-star crash test rating must include an Advanced Driver Assist System.

In summary, the answer is a resounding "yes."

However, it's crucial to understand that ADAS are designed to assist you, not replace you as the driver. Therefore, it remains imperative to remain attentive to the road while driving at all times.
