Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)


While self-driving cars are still a long way off, vehicle safety technology has evolved at a swift pace in recent years. Car manufacturers have been steadily implementing new safety measures into their lineups for the last decade. Most new vehicles now come with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems or ADAS that utilize computer and video technology to enhance the safety of drivers and passengers.


The Benefits of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) include:


  • Front and rear collision warnings
  • Blind spot detection
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Adaptive Cruise control
  • Lane departure warnings


Although the technology is relatively new, studies from both the automotive industry and academic research have proven that these features can help reduce the dangers associated with operating a motor vehicle. Most people consider themselves safe drivers, but the available data proves that 90% of collisions are caused by human error.


These systems vary between vehicles, and manufacturers are continuously upgrading and implementing new systems, but all ADAS rely upon digital technology that can interpret data in real time and send warnings to the driver.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor technology types:


  • Radar
  • GPS/GNSS (satellite)
  • LiDAR
  • Sonar
  • Video cameras


These sensors feed information to the vehicle’s operating system which processes the data and informs the driver of perceived threats, or if a collision is imminent, ADAS can help stop the vehicle before collision.


While these systems reduce the risks associated with driving, they must be properly adjusted in order to work effectively. To help our customers stay safe on the road, Baywood Glass recently purchased a Bosch DAS 3000 to recalibrate ADAS systems in vehicles.


This cutting-edge machine comes equipped with the most advanced sensor calibration equipment available, and it is designed to work with a wide range of vehicles.

Features and advantages of the Bosch DAS 3000:


  • Works with a large range of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) ADAS technologies
  • Fastest and most precise calibration system on the market
  • 13 camera targets
  • Industrial grade vision cameras to measure distance and angles
  • Simplifies complex repair jobs and provides precise factory approved calibration


You may be wondering why a glass installer should calibrate your ADAS rather than an automotive mechanic, but ADAS systems live within the vehicle’s mirrors and windows rather than the vehicle’s engine.


Our team of trained professional glass installers are well versed in the complexities of these systems, allowing to properly recalibrate the required cameras back to factory settings, after a windshield has been changed. With this technology in place at our service center, we can now ensure our customers that we offer the very best ADAS calibration service on the market.


Baywood Glass is a full-service glass repair shop that is locally owned and operated. We have been repairing, installing and replacing automotive glass for the people of Nanaimo and surrounding areas since 2005. Our team is committed to first class service and with our new Bosch DAS 3000 machine in place we look forward to helping you with all your automotive glass needs.
