A windshield dynamic camera calibration is a process used to fine-tune and validate the accuracy of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) cameras mounted on a vehicle’s windshield. Unlike static calibration, which occurs in a controlled environment, dynamic calibration takes place during real-world driving conditions. This procedure is essential when a vehicle’s ADAS cameras have been replaced, recalibrated, or if the vehicle’s alignment has been significantly altered.
During dynamic calibration, the vehicle’s cameras continuously collect data while the car is driven under specific conditions, often at various speeds and on different types of roads. The data gathered is compared to the expected readings and parameters set by the vehicle’s manufacturer. Any deviations or inconsistencies are then adjusted in real-time to ensure the cameras are accurately detecting and interpreting road elements like lane markings and obstacles.
Dynamic calibration helps maintain the proper functioning of ADAS features, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist, by ensuring the cameras’ alignment is adjusted to real-world conditions, enhancing safety and driving assistance system reliability.
