Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is becoming common place in our vehicles. More than 44% of vehicles manufactured in 2020 will be produced with auto glass that includes ADAS features. These systems rely on cameras, lasers and radar to function properly. It is most common to have these camera’s mounted to your windshield. After the windshield is replaced, it is crucial to calibrate your vehicle’s camera to ensure that your safety features work properly.

At Alpine Glass, we have technicians that have been factory trained by Pilkington; the company that produced the calibration tool “Opti-Aim” With this training, we are certified to use this tool to calibrate your windshield.
