A WELL-CALIBRATED CAMERA CAN SAVE LIVES

Systems are more widespread and smarter than ever

Your current car is a lot smarter than the one you were driving ten years ago. This is true for all makes, from entry models to luxury SUVs. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are becoming increasingly more common in vehicules… and for good reason! They greatly enhance both your safety and the safety of all others sharing the road.

  • A well calibrated camera prevents collision (related to ADAS features)
  • A well calibrated camera prevents lane departure (related to ADAS features)

Calibrating the camera is key

Most Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) operate, among other things, using a camera located on the windshield behind the rearview mirror. When you replace your windshield, it’s important to have your camera calibrated by experts, according to the manufacturer’s standards. It’s a matter of safety.

Did you know that most Canadian insurers now cover camera calibration costs along with windshield replacement claims?
