With the latest advancements in the field, we’re able to offer our customers the best quality in auto glass repairs and replacement. So, we’re thrilled to announce our latest offering for Denver car owners: The Opti-Aim windshield calibration system. For vehicles with ADAS technology, Opti-Aim is the industry’s first complete and precise calibration system.
Calibration For ADAS Vehicles
ADAS, or Advanced Driver Assistance System, is an innovative technology that’s rapidly gaining popularity among car owners. The goal of ADAS is to improve car and road safety through features including:
- Lane keep assist
- Lane departure warning
- Park assist
- Forward collision alert and mitigation
- Adaptive cruise control
- Blind-spot monitoring
- Adaptive headlights
- Driver status monitoring
Road accidents are almost always a result of simple human error. While ADAS technology doesn’t eliminate the need for a focused human driver behind the wheel, it provides valuable warnings and reminders that can reduce the risk of an accident.
So, what’s the role of calibration in the maintenance of your vehicle’s ADAS? The ADAS uses cameras, lasers, radar, and sensors to provide the features listed above. But, these components need to be precisely aligned to work correctly. Calibration brings your ADAS back to OEM (original equipment manufacturer) specifications.
While the ADAS must be correctly aligned to operate well, it can’t realign itself. Instead, the system must be calibrated to ensure that it’s functioning properly.
Calibration After Auto Glass Installation
When a new windshield is installed in a vehicle with ADAS, the cameras and sensors are removed, then re-adhered to the windshield. Since the ADAS is moved during the auto glass installation process, its functionality will be thrown off. Even a minute shift in the degree of the sensor will drastically change how the ADAS features work. Calibration will realign the system and restore its regular operation.
If a vehicle isn’t calibrated after a windshield replacement, the ADAS may not function properly. This could lead to an accident. So, calibration is essential to accident prevention after a windshield replacement.
Opti-Aim provides unparalleled precision, safety, and dependability in calibration for vehicles with ADAS. This tool is the gold standard in ADAS calibration and will help car owners stay safer on the road.

The Growing Need For ADAS Calibration
ADAS technology is rapidly becoming standard among car manufacturers. Automatic Emergency Braking is now a standard addition to all vehicles, and ADAS was added by NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Association) as a requirement to receive a 5-Star Safety Rating. Clearly, we’re moving toward a future with ADAS as an expected addition to all vehicles, and auto glass service providers must adjust accordingly.
ADAS Calibration For Windshield Replacements
With more car models boasting ADAS features than ever before, windshield-mounted sensors are increasingly prevalent in windshield replacements. This makes it crucial for auto glass specialists in Denver and beyond to have the technology to properly calibrate windshield-mounted sensors at the time of auto glass replacement. The expert team at Complete Auto Glass now fulfills this expanding need by offering the Opti-Aim windshield calibration system.
ADAS Calibration For Windshield Repairs
Windshield repairs, as well as windshield replacement, can shift the degree of the cameras and sensors that make ADAS features work. If you need the windshield of your vehicle repaired, you can count on Complete Auto Glass to provide Opti-Aim calibration so that your car’s ADAS features continue to function properly.
Opti-Aim Calibration: What To Expect
Opti-Aim calibration can be performed within the same visit to Complete Auto Glass for your windshield replacement. The process takes around 30 to 45 minutes, on average, but your technician will need to wait for a half-hour after the new windshield has been placed to calibrate the vehicle. This period allows the windshield to be fully set before being calibrated.
Given the complexity of ADAS technology, you need an auto repair shop that you can rely on. So, if you need windshield repairs and replacement, and you own a vehicle with ADAS technology, we recommend that you give us a call today. Our highly trained technicians can restore your windshield and calibrate your ADAS system for complete safety on the road.
