What is ADAS and how does it affect my windscreen?
ADAS is an abbreviation for Advanced Driver Assistance System, a collective term for the new technology used to assist the driver in avoiding road collisions. The ADAS technology uses cameras, radar and other systems to inform the vehicle of where it is on the road looking forward and sometimes to the side or backwards. The majority of front facing camera systems are either attached to the inside of the windscreens or are mounted on the roof and look through the windscreen.
Many modern vehicles are now equipped with sophisticated ADAS technology, as safety features such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warnings become more standard. Often ADAS with a forward looking camera will require recalibration after windscreen replacement as a vehicle manufacturer requirement due to the technology being housed in windscreen mounted hardware.
If your vehicle is fitted with Advanced Driver Assistance technology, recalibration might be required after a windscreen replacement. Call us today on 08 9751 5600 or ask us for a quote.
Do I have ADAS on my vehicle?
It is important to know if your vehicle is fitted with ADAS, because it can help improve road safety if it is working properly. We advise you to check with your vehicle manufacturer for which ADAS systems you have on your vehicle. Alternatively, you can contact our team who can easily identify if your car has an ADAS windscreen with just a few questions.
Does South West Windscreens & Tint offer ADAS recalibration?
Yes, O’Brien® has partnered with BOSCH to deliver an innovative solution in recalibration technology for many vehicle types, which we call Cal-Tech®. It offers you a seamless windscreen repair or replacement solution when your vehicle’s camera is one of those that Cal-Tech® can recalibrate.
Can South West Windscreens & Tint recalibrate my ADAS camera?
Yes we sure can. We now offer recalibration for many vehicle types with our Cal-Tech® system. For some vehicle models where the O’Brien® system is not yet available, we have relationships with many car manufacturer dealerships and will arrange the recalibration on your behalf.
Why do I need to recalibrate your car’s ADAS safety cameras?
It is recommended by most vehicle manufacturers that after replacing your windscreen the cameras should be recalibrated to ensure the system is operating with the precision that the safety system requires. At South West Windscreens & Tint when we replace a windscreen with inbuilt ADAS technology, we believe the safest option is to recalibrate the camera in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Please continue to read below for our Cal-Tech® ADAS Recalibration Guarantee information.
How much does Cal-Tech® ADAS Recalibration cost?
The cost depends on the make and model of your car and whether you have insurance coverage. Speak to our experts to find out today! Call us on 08 9751 5600 or ask us for a quote.
Does South West Windscreens & Tint guarantee the Cal-Tech® ADAS recalibration?
As an O’Brien® Authorised Dealer we guarantee our work for a year after recalibration or until the next recalibration event occurs, whichever occurs first.
Recalibration events include windscreen replacements, wheel alignments, change of wheels, tyres or geometry changes, faulty engine control unit or disconnection or partial removal of the camera from its mounting. The vehicle guide book should provide you with a full list of recalibration events for your vehicle.
This O’Brien® guarantee applies in addition to any consumer rights you have under the Australian Consumer Law.
What if I think the Cal-Tech® ADAS recalibration didn’t work?
Contact us on 08 9751 5600.
If the recalibration is defective, we will carry out another recalibration test for you, free of charge.
Can I use the vehicle if the Cal-Tech® ADAS recalibration didn’t work?
You should not rely on the ADAS technology within the vehicle if you suspect that the recalibration was faulty, and you must ensure all those who might drive the vehicle are also aware to not place reliance on the system.

Important to note
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that the driver should have their ADAS camera recalibrated after a recalibration event. It is important that you check the vehicle guide book for your car to understand what is recommended for your vehicle. Typically, a vehicle could expect to experience any number of events in a year that affect things like suspension or tyres, impacting upon the reliability of the camera recalibration. For this reason, we recommend you recalibrate your camera each year as part of your regular service.
