Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration often requires knowing what systems come with each make and model. Additionally, today’s auto mechanics need to keep up with all the different ADAS standards, features, and terminology based on each manufacturer. Because it is nearly impossible to remember all of these across all makes/models, Agile Truck Tools offers a solution!

We not only have the best in complete calibration tool packages, but we also have the software to complement any shop’s needs. For example, with our Autel diagnostic scan tools like the MS909CV, for commercial trucks and MS906PRO, MS909, MS919, or MSULTRA, for automobiles any technician in any shop can look up the exact ADAS calibrations and specifications on nearly any make and model.

Typical ADAS Requirements

In most cases, the calibration of the ADAS system follows the collision repairs made. This often means technicians check all the sensors and cameras, ensuring they are working correctly and within OEM specifications. Technicians also check for diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), which indicate a malfunction in the ADAS system that needs to be calibrated or inspected before the car goes back to the owner.

Some of the most basic ADAS requirements that are checked include:

  • Park Assist Sensors
  • 360° Camera View
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Sensors
  • Steering Angle
  • Forward Radar Sensors
  • Forward Facing Cameras

Should any of these systems fail while a driver is behind the wheel, it is possible another collision could result.

Additional Resources

While much of this information about ADAS calibrations can be located in your Autel MaxiSYS diagnostic scan tools, it can also be found on the i-CAR website. i-CAR is a great resource tool for drivers, shop managers, and technicians. This website even allows techs to quickly find calibration and OEM information on the vehicle their working on. To check out this completely underutilized resource, click here.
