In ADAS calibration, the most common is to calibrate the camera, so what is ADAS camera calibration? Under what conditions do you need it? Which ADAS systems need to calibrate the camera? In this article, we will focus on introducing ADAS camera calibration!
With the rapid development of society and the advancement of the automotive industry technology. ADAS has been widely used in various vehicles, and it plays a key role in ensuring the safety of modern vehicles. In order to ensure that it can drive correctly, we need to calibrate the camera installed on the vehicle.
The following are some reasons for the ADAS camera calibration:
So, under what circumstances do you need ADAS camera calibration?
In order to drive more securely, we need to know more about the ADAS camera calibration under what circumstances, which is conducive to our judgment of the vehicle!
1. After replacing the camera: If you replace the ADAS camera, you need to calibrate it to ensure that it plays a role normally and accurately. Because the characteristics of each camera are slightly different, the calibration process can ensure that the new camera is aligned with the geometric shape of the vehicle, and that the information it provides is accurate.
2. After a collision or accident: If your vehicle is involved in a collision or accident, ADAS cameras may be misplaced, damaged, or out of calibration, which affects the accuracy of the system.
3. After the suspension is overhauled: Any major repair or modification of the suspension system, such as replacing the suspension part or adjusting the height of driving, will also affect the alignment of the ADAS camera.
4. After wheel alignment: Wheel alignment also affects the positioning of the ADAS camera since it is mounted on the windshield or dashboard and is sensitive to changes in vehicle geometry.
5. Windshield replacement: Replacing the windshield will affect the front camera, so ADAS camera calibration is also required.
1. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system: Use the camera to detect lane markers, and warn the driver when the vehicle deviates from the lane.
2. Forward Collision Warning( FCW )system: Use a camera to detect the distance between the vehicle and the front vehicle, and a warning is issued if the distance is too close.
3. Automatic emergency braking (AEB) system: Use the camera to detect the obstacles on the road. If the driver does not respond to the warning, it will automatically brake.
4. Adaptive cruise control (ACC) system: Use the camera to detect the distance between the vehicle and the vehicle in front, and adjust the speed of the vehicle to maintain a safe follow-up distance.
ADAS calibration is a process of adjusting and verifying vehicle safety systems to ensure their normal operation. The results of ADAS calibration are not only influenced by ADAS devices but also by the level of technical personnel. How to become a qualified calibration person? ADAS calibration systematic theoretical training is essential! Smartsafe online ADAS calibration training courses cover the theme of various ADAS, calibration processes, calibration tools and equipment, safety prevention measures, and fault exclusion techniques when the process is taken in the process. At the same time, Smartsafe will also conduct offline training based on the needs of dealers. Let dealers quickly master the use of SmartSafe ADAS calibration kit. Provide strong technical support for dealers. Ensure that they will not cause use obstacles during the promotion.
