A Full-Service ADAS Solution For Auto Shops

ADAS calibration is the precise alignment of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) within a vehicle. The calibration process is technical and requires the right experience, advanced equipment, and proper training. Because of these conditions, it can be a challenge for auto and collision repair facilities to accommodate ADAS calibrations in-house. That’s where we come in.

Empire ADAS is a full-service ADAS calibration center, specializing in the calibration of ADAS systems, programming, diagnostics, and more. We perform advanced calibrations to meet manufacturer specifications and ensure the safety and operation of all ADAS systems within a vehicle.

What is ADAS?

ADAS, or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems can be found in most modern vehicles and provide a wide range of features that assist drivers while on the road. With this technology, drivers are given more control over their vehicle and are able to be in constant communication with surrounding cars.

Common ADAS feaures include:

Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) – Detects impending collisions and automatically engages the brakes if the driver isn’t able to do so in time.

Blind Spot Monitoring – Uses sensors to detect vehicles that are in adjacent lanes and alerts drivers of their presence.

Lane Departure Warning – Alerts drivers when they accidentally drift outside of their lane or make a lane change without signaling.

Adaptive Headlights – Designed to increase visibility in low light conditions by adjusting the position or vibrancy of the headlights.

Pedestrian Detection – Detects human movements in the vehicle’s path and alerts the driver. In vehicles equipped with AEB, brakes are engaged to avoid a collision. 

Collision Avoidance System – Works with AEB to engage the brakes automatically if risk of a collision has been detected. 

Adaptive Cruise Control – Allows drivers to set a preferred speed and following distance then automatically slows down or speeds up the vehicle based on these parameters. 

ADAS Calibrations for Auto & Collision Repair Facilities

The introduction of advanced driver assistance systems has made driving safer and these features have proven to aid in avoiding collisions. That’s why nearly all new vehicles sold today have at least one ADAS installed onto them! This presents a challenge for auto and collision repair facilities that don’t have the expertise and infrastructure to perform ADAS calibrations.

We know that the safety of your customers after they drive out of your shop is one of your primary concerns. That’s why we’ve developed a process that ensures a vehicle is ready and safe to operate before it’s returned to your shop. Each calibration performed by us at Empire ADAS undergoes rigorous testing that ensures ADAS systems are functioning properly and the vehicle is ready to hit the road.

The Importance of Calibration

When parts of a vehicle are repaired or replaced ADAS functionality is often affected and sensors may fall out of alignment. Unfortunately, ADAS misalignment will not always trigger a warning light or diagnostic code, and most often cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Our calibration technicians are trained to identify issues with sensors and alignment. They have the training, knowledge, and equipment to support them that can only be found in a professional calibration center. Every vehicle calibrated at Empire ADAS undergoes thorough testing in order to ensure that all ADAS systems are completely functional and in line with manufacturer specifications before it’s returned to your facility.

A Full-Service ADAS Calibration Solution

Empire ADAS is a leader in the Automotive Industry when it comes to calibration, programming, diagnostics, and most importantly safety. Our technicians have undergone rigorous training to help them understand these systems and the various vehicle makes and models that contain these features.

Our facility includes calibration and alignment bays equipped with certified flooring that exceeds OEM requirements for calibration and advanced lighting. This controlled environment allows us to successfully perform calibration without the obstructions that can be found in normal shop environments or environmental obstructions.

We offer pickup or delivery for our customers, whichever is most convenient for your business. We also provide exceptional customer service and are happy to answer any of your questions about calibration.

Our Calibration Process

When it comes to calibrations, accuracy is essential. We’ve developed a 4-step process that allows us to guarantee that a vehicle and it’s ADAS features are fully operational before it’s returned to your facility.

Pre-Calibration Diagnostic Scan

A pre-scan allows us to assess the vehicle in its current state and diagnose potential ADAS issues.

  • Identify ADAS systems on each vehicle
  • Identify what ADAS Systems were affected by the accident
  • Identify what ADAS Systems will be affected by the repair process

Wheel Alignment Verification

ADAS calibration cannot be performed until the vehicle’s wheels have been properly aligned.

  • Validate Tire Pressure
  • Thrust Line Verification
  • Confirm steering angle sensor
  • Perform any necessary repairs


Fuel level and ride height affect calibration. We validate the current status of these factors and proceed with calibration.

  • Validate Fuel Level (Compensation weight added when not a full tank)
  • Vehicle calibration(s)
  • Test Drive 
  • Final health check/scan

Health Check (Post Scan)

A calibration is not complete without the documentation to support it. We complete a post scan of the vehicle and provide you with reports validating the work that has been performed.

  • Complete post scan
  • Provide documented certification of calibration
