Prerequisites for ADAS

Static ADAS calibrations

Due the accuracy of the calibrations we perform there is some information you need to know before attending or booking a calibration. There are some rules which we must follow to comply with the IIR regulation set by Thatcham.
Before calibration can be performed on a vehicle the vehicle must be road legal and safe. We may also ask you to prepare your vehicle by following these guides:

  • Remove any addition luggage or items from the vehicle,
  • Have a full tank of fuel or a fully charged vehicle upon arrival
  • Have the 4-wheel alignment checked prior to arrival (we will need the printout for your alignment),
  • The spare tire may also need to be installed.
  • Please ensure the vehicle is in a clean condition.

To calibrate a camera or sensor, the vehicle must be sitting in an area with very specific requirements. Normally this means that the surface the vehicle is parked on has a limited slope or is level. It also means that the vehicle needs to have a controlled ride height and level. Many calibrations require that the fuel tank be filled. You may be required to unload any heavy objects from the vehicle. The spare tire may also need to be in the correct place to ensure the vehicle is at the proper weight and at the correct ride height. If the wrong tire size is installed, it can also affect the calibration.

Static ADAS calibrations

Dynamic Calibrations will require the vehicle to be taken for a road test. We will have the same requirements as the static calibration, we will also need to complete a vehicle condition report prior to starting the calibration. Please ensure your vehicle is road legal prior to making a booking.

Mobile ADAS calibrations

Our mobile ADAS calibration unit can visit you at your workplace, or garage. We require the right conditions to be able to calibrate accurately.

  • Level clear floor space - We will require a space 2 car lengths by 2 car widths to perform calibrations. The floor should be level within 10 mm from one side of the area to the other
  • Uncluttered area with minimal foot traffic.
  • Lighting - evenly diffused light across the workspace is important to prevent minor details like shadows, reflections, and glare from interfering with the calibration
  • Wifi connection - this is so we can connect our equipment and ensure we have the latest information on the vehicle being calibrated.

We will not be able to calibrate a vehicle outdoors or in tight working areas due to the accuracy and size of the equipment of the equipment. any objects around the boards could cause a misreading and an unsuccessful calibration.
