More and more vehicles are are fitted with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems such as adaptive cruise control, automatic parking, collision avoidance, driver drowsiness detection, emergency driver assist, forward collision warning, intelligent speed adaption, lane departure, pedestrian protection, traffic sign recognition and more. The list is growing with every new car release – and so is the need for specialist alignment.
These systems rely on sensors behind the grille, on the bodywork and even in the windscreen – and a minor bump or even a ‘screen change can require sensor re-calibration. As many of these sensors rely on correct rear alignment, a full four wheel check is a vital safety factor. Some manufacturers insist on four wheel alignment when ADAS sensors are changed, and our best practice requires workshops to scan for ADAS systems before aligning vehicles – a vital safety feature.
