What is ADAS?

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), are technological features that are designed to improve driver safety and prevent vehicle accidents. ADAS utilises sensors such as radar, sonar, lidar and cameras to perceive the world around the vehicle, and either provide critical information to the driver or take automatic action to avoid or mitigate the effects of a crash.

ADAS systems are designed to increase driver safety and decrease the number and/or the severity of automotive accidents. According to a study conducted by AAA foundation, ADAS has the potential to prevent 40% of all vehicle crashes, 37% of injuries and 29% of vehicular deaths.

When is ADAS calibration required?

Whenever ADAS sensor's  aiming is disrupted in any way, an ADAS calibration is required. Disruption can happen during a collision, even a minor bump, or of as a result in a windscreen replacement, suspension repair or wheel alighnment.

  • After a minor collision

  • Collision repair

  • Windscreen or side view mirror replacement

  • Suspension repairs

  • Wheel alignment

  • Sensor mounting bracket replacement

  • Change in ride height or tyre size

  • Related DTC (Diagnostic trouble codes) is present

  • Front air bag deployment, if deflected off windscreen

  • ADAS related TSB's (Technical service bulletins) manufacturer position statements

  • Mechanical procedures, like radiator and condensor replacment/repairs that require removal of front mounted sensors


Cost of ADAS can vary depending on your Porsche and the number and type of cameras that are fitted and the work being carried out. We are always happy to provide an estimate. All work is carried out by experienced Porsche Dealer Trained technicians
