BusinessCar Awards 2016: Windscreens - Autoglass
26 January 2016
The world of windscreen repair might seem like an unchanging place but Autoglass has been busy over the past year proving it's anything but. This has had a big role to play in why it won our glass repair category.
With many windscreens now being the crucial interface for advanced driver-assistance systems, Autoglass has leapt into action to make sure any replacements preserve safety systems' accuracy.
The company can now provide 'static' and 'dynamic' calibration for replaced windscreens - with vehicles either parked in front of a calibration board, or driven for a certain time to allow the in-car cameras to log enough 'street furniture' - to confirm that cameras are angled correctly.
This is particularly important as poorly aligned in-car cameras wired into car safety systems can compromise occupant safety.
