Understanding ADAS Calibration Costs

Understanding ADAS Calibration Costs

Navigating the roads safely is paramount, and thanks to the advancements in automotive technology, drivers now have an extra set of eyes on the road. This technological marvel, known as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), plays a crucial role in enhancing road safety. 

These systems include a variety of features, such as lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warnings, which are now commonly found in nearly every late-model vehicle. However, maintaining these systems (especially following windshield replacements or any work on the midline of your vehicle) involves a crucial step: ADAS calibration.

The Essence of ADAS and Calibration

ADAS systems have come a long way since the introduction of antilock brakes in the 1970s. Today, they encompass a wide array of features, including lane departure and collision warnings, parking assistance, and 360-degree camera views. ADAS features rely heavily on a network of cameras, sensors, RADAR, and LIDAR positioned throughout the vehicle to monitor its surroundings accurately.

These components require precise alignment to function correctly; even a minor misalignment can lead to inaccurate readings that can potentially compromise the system’s ability to prevent accidents. This is why the system needs to be calibrated after windshield replacements, collisions, or work on the vehicle’s midline.

How Much Does Calibration Cost?

The cost of ADAS calibration adds to the overall expense of windshield replacements. Traditionally, a windshield replacement might have set you back around $300. Nowadays, with the integration of ADAS components, you could be looking at anywhere from $600 to $1500, depending on your vehicle’s model and the complexity of the ADAS features involved. The calibration process itself can take anywhere from a half-hour to several hours, which can also influence the cost. 

Fortunately, many insurance companies cover ADAS calibration costs with full coverage policies. However, it’s always best to review your policy or consult with your insurance provider to confirm your coverage.
