Drivers could be left with unsafe vehicles if ADAS recalibration after a windscreen replacement is not carried out by manufacturer dealerships according to Auto Windscreens.
The message was heard at Auto Windscreens’ Busting the Myths: Let’s Talk about ADAS conference during which Auto Windscreens revealed details of its investment in building partnerships with manufacturers to combat issues around ADAS. The glass company claims to have developed a unique relationship with vehicle manufacturers to ensure any vehicle incorporating ADAS is fitted with an OEM windscreen and is recalibrated by their dealers.
Rupert Armitage, Auto Windscreens’ managing director, said, ‘We believe we have the right ethos when it comes to fitting OEM windscreens and using dealers for recalibration. ADAS technological advancements are rapid, but this approach means our partners and, more importantly, our customers are always fully protected. Using OEM glass and referring vehicles back to the manufacturer dealer networks makes sure ADAS cameras and sensors are performing in the way they are designed to, eliminating driver safety risks and keeping manufacturer warranties valid.’
Auto Windscreens has also integrated Epyx 1-Link technology into its existing workflow platforms to enable the recalibration appointment to be made at the same time as a windscreen replacement is scheduled.
