What Are The Types Of Calibration?
Static calibration takes place in a specialized setting where the car isn’t moved. Using highly sensitive equipment such as a Camera and Sensor Calibration Tool and leveled flooring, our experts are able to perform calibration in one location. The process takes a short while, and the vehicle’s internal processer inputs data changes and recalibrates itself to optimal levels according to OEM Specifications.
Dynamic Calibration is one using a device that a technician plugs directly into your vehicle. With the device plugged in, the technician then drives your vehicle at a manufacturer-designated speed over a defined distance, which calibrates the ADAS systems. During this Claribriation, the systems learn to react and respond to issues and occurrences on the road, which helps keep you safe while you drive your vehicle.
