What The Heck Is ADAS and Why Should I Care?

Windshield ADAS Calibration Service Pensacola, FL

 

Great questions!

ADAS is the acronym for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems that takes different forms as follows:

  • Forward Collision Alert (FCA)
  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
  • Lane Keep Assist (LKA)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  • Driver Status Monitoring (DSM)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)
  • Pedestrian Detection (PD)
  • Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

 

ADAS technology utilizes radar, lasers and cameras to help make driving safer for drivers and pedestrians alike. These technologies combine to measure distances between your vehicle and other vehicles or pedestrians or fixed obstacles such as parked cars, barriers and curbs. They assist the driver by alerting and providing images or warnings and in some cases (lane retention assist) will guide you gently back into your lane or in the case of the collision mitigation breaking system (CMBS) will actually apply the brakes for you.

 

There is a growing trend across all vehicle manufacturers around the globe to incorporate these safety systems into the vehicles that they build. This blog is intended to provide you a quick overview of what ADAS comprises.

Some key statistics:

  • By 2020 it is estimated that more than 44% of new auto glass production will include ADAS features
  • By 2025 49% of cars will require re calibration after a windshield is replaced

Static and Dynamic system are used by different manufacturers. Each requiring different approaches to re-setting and re-calibrating the components listed above.

Our Auto Glass Services Include:

Car Side Window Replacement

Most vehicle side windows are made of heat strengthened (tempered) glass. When it breaks it shatters completely and may or may not fall completely from the opening. Immediate replacement is important to protect the vehicle from the weather and for security. If your side window cracked without shattering you have what the industry calls “acoustical” glass. We can replace those, too. These windows are known as vent glass and quarter glass.

 

Rear Windshield / Back Glass Replacement

The average rear window replacement usually takes less than one hour and can be done via in-shop or convenient mobile service to your home or office. Only top quality replacements. Lloyd’s matches the replacement glass with an identical replacement every time. We only use glass manufactured to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) standards, whether sourced from original equipment manufacturers or other suppliers.

 

Sunroof – Moonroof Repair and Replacement

Lloyd’s Glass can replace broken, shattered or cracked sunroof panels in most cases in Pensacola, Crestview, Fort Walton and Panama City, FL. In most cases Lloyd’s will save you a considerable amount of money from what the new car dealer will charge.

 

Power Window Repair and Replacement

In most cases, cranks and gears and handles have been replaced with cables and guides and motors and switches. All moving parts wear out over time. Lloyd’s knows how to repair them for you at a reasonable price.

Window regulators regulate the position of the glass in the door opening. Because of frequent window usage, window regulators and window motors are subject to wear. This eventually leads to failure and inconvenience at the drive-up window.
