Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) are becoming more prevalent in automotive manufacturing. Even with these advancements, accidents still happen. Glass and Advanced Driver Assist Systems is a one-hour, online course that will teach technicians about systems that are related to and impacted by windshield repair, replacement, and R&I procedures. Further instruction will be provided on what technicians need to look for when determining if the system has been damaged and needs to be replaced.

Course Content
Module 1 – Types of Advanced Driver Assist Systems
Module 1 begins with an introduction to driver assist systems associated with the windshield and their related repair / replacement concerns. This module provides an overview of some of these systems and how they assist the driver. These include:

  • Lane departure warning and lane keep assist systems
  • Collision mitigation systems
  • Pre-collision systems
  • Automatic high-beam assist system
  • Night vision systems
  • Head-up displays
  • Automatic Windshield Wipers

Students will also learn how to visually inspect ADAS parts and determine if they need to be replaced.

Module 2 – ADAS Part Removal, Installation, and Calibration
Module 2 will cover windshield removal and replacement. Students will learn how to identify if the vehicle is equipped with an ADAS system and special considerations for removal and replacement of a windshield with ADAS parts. This module will conclude with a discussion on calibration requirements and safety concerns.

Module 2 covers concerns for:

  • Windshield replacement
  • HUD glass replacement
  • Camera removal and installation
  • Rain sensor removal and installation
  • High-beam assist sensors
  • Night vision cameras

Next, Module 2 will discuss determining calibration requirements including:

  • Static Camera Aiming
  • Dynamic Camera Aiming

The module will conclude with safety and liability concerns if any ADAS cannot be calibrated by the repair service. This includes recommendations for communicating any non-functioning ADAS to the vehicle owner and retaining documentation.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify various types of windshield damage
  • Identify various types of driver assist systems
  • Understand and describe how the various types of ADAS work
  • Be able to identify some of the issues regarding removing or replacing windshields connected to ADAS.
  • Identify ADAS parts located near or attached to the windshield
  • Remove ADAS parts and store properly
  • Install ADAS parts
  • Identify the two primary types of calibration
