Good news for auto glass businesses, auto insurers and consumers: General Motors has recently published a document listing available systems and components on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), also indicating when these eventually require calibration when serviced, (re)installed or repaired.
GM advises industry members to refer to the “appropriate service information document for specific calibration instructions, as well as any additional programming operations needed if the component was replaced.” The guide specifies the official name, abbreviation and “regular production option” (RPO) code of each ADAS feature. It also explains when calibration would be required and the cause of calibration issues for certain parts.
To properly calibrate the front view camera, GM advises to drive on a two-lane divide highway with lane markings on both side of the lane, at a speed between 35-56 miles per hour. Calibration could be more difficult or even impossible under certain conditions such as stop and go traffic, poor lane markings, driving in adverse weather (such as snow, fog, or extreme rain, or driving directly into the sun) among others. If you wish more information, here is the link to the document.
