• What is ADAS

    Collisions that result in injury are commonly caused by the delay in a driver’s recognition of the situation and their ability to react accordingly. There are millions of reported crashes every year– many of which are avoidable.

    ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) is designed to help protect drivers, passengers, people in other vehicles on the road, cyclists and pedestrians from harm. ADAS represents a major milestone in the Automotive industry, creating advancements and innovations in safety that help prevent crashes and protect people.

  • Does my vehicle have ADAS?

    Most vehicles sold today have some form of ADAS. The majority of vehicle manufacturers are utilising at least a front facing camera in the windscreen in addition to a front facing radar or LiDAR. Take a little time to read your vehicle owners manual and you will likely find that, if your vehicle was manufactured after 2015, the vehicle is fitted with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Assist (LA) and maybe more.

  • What services do ADAS Solutions offer?

    ADAS Solutions Australia is Australia’s premier ADAS business.

    Established in 2019, ADAS Solutions Australia can offer ADAS diagnosis, repair and calibration for all types of vehicle.

    ADAS Solutions Australia also offers the following services to the automotive industry – Australia's only ADAS Technical Training, quality ADAS Equipment supply and unrivalled ADAS Technical Support.

  • When should ADAS need to be calibrated?

    Almost all ADAS components will require diagnosis, repair or calibration at some stage in their lifecycle.

    Instances where service is required include:

    Windscreen replacement.

    Smash repair.

    Wheel alignment and/or suspension repairs.

    Vehicle modification

    Component failure/replacement or component removal to carry out repairs such as front radar removal in order to replace a timing belt!

  • How do I know if the ADAS on my vehicle is working correctly?

    Take some time to read your vehicles owners manual. This will explain how your specific vehicles systems operate (different manufacturers have different system operational characteristics). Become familiar with your vehicle and its performance. For example, if the vehicle is fitted with ACC, it should maintain a safe distance from the preceding vehicle, slowing smoothly and safely, accelerating smoothly and safely and may even be designed to bring the vehicle to a safe stop in traffic. If the vehicle has LA, it should give a warning if the vehicle is drifting across the white lines at both left and right sides of the road. It may also actively apply gentle steering inputs to maintain a safe position in the lane.

    There should be no warning lights in the instrument cluster – only operational (green) system lights.

  • I have a warning light in my instrument cluster. What should I do?

    If you observe an unusual warning light in your instrument cluster (typically shown as an orange or red light), you should seek assistance as soon as possible.

    There may be an issue that is rendering the vehicles ADAS inoperative or with reduced function.

    Contact us at ADAS Solutions Australia for the correct advice and subsequent rectification.

  • Can I turn ADAS off?

    Some ADAS can be turned off.

    Typically, some non-safety critical systems can be turned off, such as BSM (Blind Spot Monitor), however, they may turn themselves back on when the vehicle ignition is cycled.

    Some systems, such as AEB, cannot be turned off. They are supplementary systems that are designed to remain on at all times.

    Here at ADAS Solutions Australia, we would recommend that all ADAS is left on and operational at all times.

  • I have modified my vehicle. What effect can this have on my ADAS?

    Vehicle modifications such as changes in suspension ride height can have a negative effect on the vehicles ADAS.

    Seek advice from the vehicle manufacturer prior to modifying your vehicle. Ensure that the modifications can be carried out safely and with authorisation from the manufacturer. Only this way can you guarantee the vehicle and it’s occupants safety.

    If modifications are carried out, recalibration of the vehicles ADAS is often required.

    If in doubt, contact us here at ADAS Solutions Australia for advice.

  • I recently had my windscreen replaced and the fitter said that calibration is not required. Is this correct?

    Calibration of the front facing camera in the windscreen is always required following windscreen replacement.

    Ensure that you use a reputable windscreen replacement business and quality auto glass.

    If your vehicle windscreen fitter cannot carry out calibration, call us, we can!

    If in doubt, seek advice from us here at ADAS Solutions Australia.

  • I don’t have any warning lights in my instrument cluster. That must mean that everything is OK and working correctly?

    Some ADAS systems will not illuminate a warning light in the instrument cluster if there is a problem.

    For example, if the vehicle is subject to a light impact resulting in the movement of a radar behind the vehicles bumper, the system doesn’t know that the radar is misaligned.

    If in doubt, seek advice from us here at ADAS Solutions Australia.

  • Can I calibrate ADAS myself?

    No. Calibration of your vehicles ADAS requires hi tech equipment and the skills of a trained and suitably qualified ADAS technician.

    If in doubt, seek advice from us here at ADAS Solutions Australia.

  • I’ve been told that my vehicle calibrates itself. Is this true?

    The vast majority of vehicles with ADAS require calibration that needs to be instigated and carried out by a trained and suitably qualified ADAS technician.

    There are a small number of vehicles and systems that don’t require calibration, however, these are rare and still often need to be checked and tested by a trained and suitably qualified ADAS technician.

    If in doubt, seek advice from us here at ADAS Solutions Australia.

  • Can anyone calibrate my vehicles ADAS?

    No. Calibration should only be carried out by a trained and suitably qualified ADAS technician.

    Hi tech and often very expensive equipment is required to carry out repair and calibration on your vehicle. The systems may be required to save the life of the vehicles occupants if the vehicle is involved in an accident. Don’t leave calibration of safety critical vehicle systems to someone who has not been trained, isn’t suitably qualified and doesn’t understand how to successfully calibrate and test your vehicles ADAS.

    ADAS Solutions Australia has a team of highly qualified and dedicated Master and Diagnostic Technicians with many years of experience.
