30 Jul Benefits of Using Opti-Aim
Here at RNR Auto Glass, we’re proud to announce that we’ve recently started offering Opti-Aim calibration for our in-shop services. Your vehicle’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) rely on radar, lasers, and cameras to supply safety information for drivers when you’re on the road in the San Antonio area. Following windshield replacement, the cameras on these devices must be calibrated and restored to their original specifications in order to ensure they’re working properly.
What is an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS)?
An ADAS is sort of like an interactive co-pilot who helps you to stay on course. It’s hoped that this innovative and rapidly growing new technology will increase both auto safety and road safety. Features include lane and parking assistance, forward collision alert, and collision mitigating braking. Additional features include traffic sign and pedestrian alerts, blind spot monitoring, adaptive headlights and a lane departure warning.
How Will ADAS Calibration Impact the Auto Glass Industry?
The expansion of windshield-mounted sensors in new cars will bring an equal expansion to the auto glass calibration industry. In 2015, automatic emergency breaking became standard on new cars made by 60 percent of automobile manufacturers. The same year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) added ADAS to its New Car Assessment Program. Vehicles must now have ADAS to qualify for a 5-star rating.
What’s So Great About This Calibration Tool?
Opti-Aim is the first aftermarket calibration tool that can deliver exact auto glass camera calibration for even the most complex installations. The system does practically all of the work. Simply connect the tool to the vehicle, and it begins the camera-aiming process. It works with a car’s computer to optimize camera alignment and to restore it to OEM specifications. The system even includes updates to accommodate new vehicles. Working with this tool keeps RNR Auto Glass on top of the latest trending calibration options, and our customers safer on the roadways.
