ADAS Calibration – Why You Should Invest

ADAS Calibration - Why You Should Invest


Understanding ADAS

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are electronic systems employed in vehicles to enhance road safety by supporting the driver in the driving process. These systems leverage a variety of sensors such as cameras, radars, and lidar to detect surroundings and can significantly reduce the burden on the driver. With the rapid advancement in automotive technology, ADAS has become a standard feature in most new commercial vehicles. Features like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Deviation Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB) not only enhance safety but also pave the way towards fully autonomous driving.

The Importance of ADAS Calibration

ADAS calibration is a critical procedure that ensures all the electronic sensors and cameras are correctly aligned and functioning. Following any incident that might disrupt the vehicle’s structural integrity—such as accidents, windscreen replacements, or changes in suspension/steering—the calibration of ADAS components becomes essential. Even a minor misalignment can cause the sensors to misinterpret vehicle positioning, distances, and object detection, dramatically increasing the risk of accidents. For example, a slightly skewed camera might not correctly judge the lane markings, potentially causing the vehicle to veer dangerously.

Why Workshops Should Invest in ADAS Calibration

For automotive repair shops, investing in the capability to calibrate ADAS is not just a value-added service; it’s becoming a necessity. As most commercial vehicles now feature some form of ADAS, the need for professional calibration services is more prominent than ever. Workshops equipped to handle ADAS calibration can provide comprehensive service packages, ensuring vehicles are not only mechanically sound but also safe and reliable from a software and sensor perspective.

Calibration with Jaltest Diagnostic Software

Jaltest diagnostic software offers a seamless and user-friendly interface that guides workshops through the ADAS calibration process step by step. This software supports a wide array of systems, including ACC, LDW, FCW, and AEB. By using Jaltest, technicians can ensure that the calibration process meets manufacturer specifications and is performed accurately. The software provides detailed instructions and procedures, which helps reduce human error and increases the efficiency of the calibration process.

Eclipse Automotive Technology provide a full range of Jaltest ADAS calibration equipment – a multi-brand solution for calibrating and testing ADAS on trucks, buses, coaches and light commercial vehicles.

Calibrations include lane departure, emergency braking and adaptive cruise control with pre-conditioning instructions, Diagnosis, Wiring Diagrams, Technical Data and Technical Procedures.


With the growing prevalence of ADAS in commercial vehicles, the likelihood that a vehicle will require recalibration of these systems is almost certain. Workshops that are equipped to perform ADAS calibration not only broaden their service scope but also enhance their reputation as full-service providers. Investing in the right tools and technology, like Jaltest diagnostic software, ensures that workshops can handle these demands efficiently and accurately, keeping them competitive in a rapidly evolving automotive service market. As vehicles continue to incorporate more complex and sensitive technologies, the role of precise ADAS calibration in maintaining road safety cannot be underestimated.
