Resource Highlights

The calibration of a vehicle’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) can require specialist equipment and will need an expert eye to ensure the process is carried out properly. There are 3 different ways of calibrating, static, dynamic or a combination of both methods. This is dependent on the manufacturer. When performing a dynamic calibration, ADAS sensors collect data whilst the vehicle is moving. 

Accurate ADAS Calibrations are essential for vehicle and road safety. Join our Delphi expert to see the process and to pick up some tips along the way:

  • What speed is needed for accurate calibration? 
  • How to correctly calibrate the cameras & radars 
  • What info is included on the calibration report

What is dynamic calibration?

During dynamic calibration sensors collect data as the vehicle moves, which is used to adjust automated systems like lane departure warning and blind-spot detection, to ensure they are working properly. 

What is the difference between dynamic calibration and static calibration?

During dynamic calibration, the vehicle is on the move so that the relevant data from cameras and sensors can be collected under on-road conditions. In static calibration, however, the vehicle is at a standstill. 

What speed does the vehicle need to travel for dynamic calibration?

As mentioned in the video, the vehicle should reach 70 km/h (43.5 mph) to carry out most checks. However, calibration at various speeds above and below might be carried out to ensure the ADAS systems are calibrated as well as possible.\

What are the ADAS systems?

The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) refer to the electronic systems that assist in driving and parking functions, such as sensors and cameras. Examples of ADAS systems include blind-spot detection, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warnings.
