National Windscreens has taken a role in a new European-wide initiative to create higher standards for calibration of windscreen-mounted cameras used in ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems).
ADAS systems include autonomous emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control, blind spot elimination, and lane keep assist.
Most of these features rely on a windscreen-mounted camera in order to operate, which means that when a windscreen is replaced it is essential that the camera is calibrated in order to ensure the vehicle safety systems continue to work as intended.
Martyn Bennett, regional sales and marketing director at National Windscreens, was a keynote speaker at the Automotive Glass Europe ADAS best practice conference held at the German headquarters of vehicle diagnostics specialist Hella Guttman.
He joined representatives from all 18 member countries included in the Automotive Glass Europe network of automotive glass replacement and repair companies.
National Windscreens is the UK partner of Automotive Glass Europe and a founder member of the network.
