Stationary and Dynamic Calibration

Some systems require specific targets for calibration while other systems, like forward facing cameras, do not. Those that don’t require a target need to be learned with a scan tool. After the learning, a road test on a straight road with clear lane markings is needed to complete the calibration.

Dynamic calibration is generally the preferred method for camera sensors and sometimes the only method available. Radar sensors often require static adjustment followed by an on-road procedure. Dynamic calibration starts with vehicle scan with a diagnostic tool and ends with a test on a straight road with clear lane markings. Here the vehicle must be driven for 5-30 minutes at a specified speed until the scan tool indicates that the calibration is complete.

Working Space Advantage

Target systems require a similar area to an alignment machine. During ADAS calibration the vehicle MUST be placed on a perfectly level surface to complete the procedure. You can use an existing alignment lift if you wish.
