Many services such as windshield replacements, new tires, new headlights and brake work can also throw off ADAS system calibration. If you replace a bumper a mirror or add any aftermarket vehicle accessories, re-calibration may be necessary.
Many cars today come equipped with more and more adaptive safety features every year. These systems are designed to keep drivers safe during moments when they lose focus or their attention. Some advanced driver assistance systems, like anti-lock brakes, come standard on most cars. Other systems, like adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection or park assist, are add-on features of newer model vehicles, although some of these safety features are increasingly standard on certain makes and models.
Many ADAS features rely on the windshield, some to show a heads-up display of vehicle information like speed or lane departure warnings. Most cameras use the windshield to mount to. Replacing your windshield can throw off the sensors in ADAS, which can be dangerous if not properly calibrated after replacement of the windshield or camera.
There are also cameras in the side view mirrors and front and rear bumper. Many other systems use laser and radar or lidar.
