Our Collision Center Helps with Calibrating Collision Avoidance Systems in Your Vehicle

Today's vehicles have a wide variety of electrical systems and features in them, and an auto accident can cause all types of damage to those. Car owners trust our body shop to repair all parts of their vehicle after a crash, and our team has the necessary training to reset and calibrate driver-assist systems. Read on to learn more about how our Fairfax auto collision center helps with the calibration of these systems after a crash or if they seem off.

What is ADAS in Your Vehicle?

Your vehicle may have many different advanced driver-assist systems (ADAS) that provide warnings and even braking if you're in dangerous situations. Some examples of ADAS include:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Rear cross-traffic alert

These features rely on advanced sensors and cameras along the front, rear, and sides of your vehicle, which means that a collision can damage those systems and hurt their effectiveness.

Importance of Calibrating Collision Avoidance Systems After a Crash

Even smaller collisions and accidents can mess up these driver-assist systems. You may not even realize how much you rely upon your vehicle's ADAS to provide additional braking that helps to prevent accidents or lessen their effects. Damage to these safety systems impacts them in different ways.

  • Damaged driver-assist sensors may not pick up vehicles and objects along the front, rear, and sides of your vehicle, which means they won't warn you of their presence and apply braking if necessary.
  • Issues with the calibration of these systems may cause unnecessary braking and prompts from your vehicle, which are dangerous and stressful in their own ways.

Resetting and calibrating driver-assist systems helps you enjoy all that your vehicle has to offer and ensures better driving experiences. Choosing our auto repair center near Alexandria lets you know that you're getting a complete fix of your car, truck, or SUV, including calibrating ADAS.
