ADAS Calibration, Check & Service
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are automation systems to make vehicles safer. Many manufacturers now provide ADAS features as part of standard equipment in their later models. If your car has ADAS features, the system will need calibration when certain types of repairs like windscreen replacement are performed. For repairs or calibration of ADAS in Bury, Oldham Manchester and the surrounding areas, you can depend on Volksmaster. We are one of the very few garages in the North West outside of the main dealer to offer this service.
How ADAS Makes Your Car Safer
ADAS has many features and each one is designed to reduce the possibility or severity of a particular type of accident. The type of system installed, the way it operates and the safety features available on a vehicle can vary between manufacturers and models.
Most ADAS features are designed to warn or take automatic corrective action when the possibility of an accident is detected. It works by using a set of cameras, radars, infrared sensors and other equipment to detect or correct potentially dangerous situations. Here are some common ADAS features.
1. Adaptive cruise control
This system is designed to prevent your car from colliding with a vehicle in front of you. It ensures a safe distance between your car and the vehicle ahead. The way the system operates can vary. It could be radar based or camera based.
2. Adaptive headlights
Adaptive headlights is a feature that tries to improve visibility in low-light conditions. It takes its cues from the way you use the steering wheel, estimate available light using cameras and tries to ensure that your path is adequately lit.
3. Autonomous emergency braking
This system uses lidar, radar or cameras to anticipate possible collisions. In situations of imminent danger, it automatically applies the brakes to slow the car down. This helps prevent the accident or lessen its impact.
4. Blindspot awareness
This radar-based feature alerts you when a vehicle is in your blind spot and reduces the chances of lane change accidents.
5. Lane-departure warning
This is a camera-based system that alerts you when you stray out of your lane. It warns you either by an audible alarm or a vibration in the steering wheel.
6. Traffic sign recognition
This camera-based feature reduces the chances of missing a traffic sign. It displays an alert on the dashboard whenever a road sign is detected.
7. Pedestrian alert and collision avoidance
Improves safety by taking action when there is a possibility of the car hitting a pedestrian.
8. Rear-collision warning
This feature helps you avoid being hit by a vehicle from behind.
9. Park assist
This feature helps you park accurately without bumping into neighbouring vehicles or objects.
The Need For ADAS Calibration
ADAS features depend on cameras, radars and other detectors to monitor road conditions and detect danger before taking action. These systems will work correctly only if the sensors and other equipment is accurately aligned with respect to the direction of the vehicle. When these components are displaced due to accidents or repairs, realignment is necessary for correct functioning of the system.
Many manufacturers require calibration checks even after a simple adjustment like a wheel alignment because it could upset the alignment of the sensors for lane departure and adaptive cruise control. Similarly, a windscreen replacement can change the angle of the cameras on which many features like adaptive headlights and lane departure warning depend on.
Where To Get ADAS Calibrated
The facility for ADAS calibration may not be available in all garages. It requires clear floor space to park the car and position the equipment. Special equipment, software, support, training and documentation from the manufacturer is also needed. The requirements are not standard and it can vary from one manufacturer and model to another. A significant investment is needed, especially for European cars, something that can be beyond the budget of a small garage.

I can not recommend Nathan @ Volksmaster van centre Oldham enough, bloody excellent service.
Excellent customer service, amazing knowledge, shares what he knows to help me understandable make an informed decision.
He understands that if my truck is off the road I am not earning so he fits my sporadic availability in to suit me not him.. this is so helpful.
If there were more stars they would get them..
I would advise anyone to completely dismiss VW Manchester van centre and go for Volksmaster, they are just better all round and totally honest with you unlike VW Manchester.Andy Carson05/10/20

My car had been back to VW Oldham twice and they couldn’t sort out the fault with my air con. Took it to Volks Master and they fixed it and it is working better than it ever has. Fab garage and really helpful staff. Highly recommendCaroline Schofield15/07/20
I've used Volksmaster for years. they are good mechanics, who explain what is wrong and what are the options. prices are reasonable (much cheaper than a dealer) and service is friendly.Andrew Booth14/07/20
It was not easy to find a garage I could trust. To know what they are doing and be honest about what needs to be done. I know a fair amount about car mechanics, so Im not easily fooled and can identify a con-merchant. If the garage takes the time to fully explain what is wrong with your car and how they will fix it, and does not mind you asking questions, then its a fair sign that they can be trusted. I have been taking both my VW van and Golf there for almost 2 years. I am very happy with their work.Rula Safi03/07/20
The reception and staff could not be more helpful the service was carried out on time and the car was given a full clean inside and out definately recomend volksmaster for car serviceMalcolm Watson30/06/20

Absolutly fantastic service that has excelled in every area.I run a very busy car tyre and service centre and one of my services developed a problem while in our care. To cut a long story short our service light reset knocked out or reprogramed a module on the car causing all windows and horn to stop working. Ryan who answered my initial call and worked on the car was fantastic and really helped get the car sorted. Only dealer level diagnostics and reprogramming would sort this problem out and it was done without messing about. It was all done the same day. I am so happy to have chosen VolksMaster over the dealers as they were much cheaper and knew their stuff.Guy's and Girls thank you so much for today you really don't know how happy I am for what you have done.Many Thanks Paul...Paul Widall13/06/20
Excellent service and went above and beyond to help with warranty company. I will definitely recommend and will definitely use again.
I brought my Audi here, following a recommendation from an AA mechanic. I dealt with Mike, who was brilliant. Work was done extremely quick, very efficient and communicated well the whole way through. Also very helpfull in providing me with statements and documents to support my claim to the ombudsman after my warranty company refused to pay for the work.
Thanks guystobi oputa10/06/20
Fantastic customer service every time. Been coming to the same garage for over 10+years and never been disappointed.Heidi Taylor09/06/20
I would highly recommend this place. Very professional. Personally spoke with Mike who was really helpful and gave brilliant advice. He was very honest and genuinely helped us. They are very clean and thoroughly clean car after done which is essential with the current situation.
The service is impeccable, quality of the work is outstanding. I will definitely be going here for all future work.Saim Ghazanfar ali05/06/20
It’s very rare I write a review, but today the service received from Volksmaster was exceptional!
With the COVID-19 issue at the present time they have developed procedures for keeping distance when in the office and disinfecting all parts of the car they touch before the service and when finished.
As for the service, I am very pleased. Everything completed and they also highlighted issues from previous servicing.
As for the cost, I am deliriously happy. Never again will I have the hassle of dealing with an AUDI main dealer who charge the earth and do unnecessary work. (Bye Bye Main Dealers)Colin Buckley27/05/20
Cannot praise them highly enough - recommended by a friend for their attention to new Covid 19 situation when they had a car situation 2 weeks ago- had a situation requiring immediate action myself and the good hygiene controls had become even better. Fixed screen in reception - key disinfected in and out/ key elements of car disinfected in and out and great price for job. The 'new' way forward. Thank you. Stay safe. Well done for embracing new normalMags Poulton07/05/20

Always friendly and helpful, really know their stuff.They will advise honestly and charge fairly.i would not use any other.Roy Clare13/03/20
Great service Great service, really good prices and they keep you informed of what's going on. This is my fourth time using Volksmaster at Oldham and I wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Works are done quickly and at a fair price. Any extra works found when the car is in are highlighted and they let you know and give the options of what you want doing. The staff all seem like they actually want to do the best for their customers which is not common of other places I've used for car works. Only one niggle, that's the online quote request facility on the website. It doesn't seem to work. I've tried it twice and no one ever gets in touch so am guessing it's got a glitch, however, whenever you telephone you always get dealt with efficiently and courteously.Jonathan D12/03/20
