Recalibrate motor vehicle Advanced Driver Assistance System sensors
Business Sectors (Suites): Vehicle Fitting
Developed by: IMI
Approved on: 31 Dec 2021
This standard is about recalibrating sensors in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) following removal and replacement of vehicle units/panels to facilitate vehicle fitting activities.
ADAS includes systems for driver safety, pedestrian safety, motion/stability control and collision avoidance systems.
You must be able to:
P1 use appropriate personal and vehicle protective equipment when carrying out recalibration activities
P2 support the identification of **Advanced Driver Assistance System****s** by reviewing vehicle technical data
P3 confirm and record presence and type of **Advanced Driver Assistance Systems** and **sensors**
P4 follow up-to-date and relevant industry codes of practice at all times
P5 prepare and check the required calibration **equipment** following manufacturer’s instructions prior to use
P6 use all tools and **equipment** required for your recalibration activities, correctly and safely throughout
P7 use **recalibration** **techniques** which are relevant to the ADAS system type
P8 identify and record any system deviation from acceptable limits
P9 carry out all recalibration activities following:
P9.1 manufacturer’s instructionsP9.2 recognised recalibration methodsP9.3 health, safety and environmental requirementsP10 work in a way that minimises the risk of:P10.1 damage to other vehicle systemsP10.2 damage to other components and unitsP10.3 contact with leakagesP10.4 contact with hazardous substancesP11 ensure the calibration environment Is as identified by the manufacturer’s instructionsP12 recalibrate ADAS se*n*sors correctly to ensure that they operate to meet vehicle system requirements and function to the vehicle manufacturer’s specified tolerancesP13 record the recalibration has been successfully completed and meets vehicle manufacturer’s specified tolerancesP14 ensure your records are accurate, complete and passed to the relevant person(s) within the agreed timescale and in the format requiredP15 complete all recalibration activities within the agreed timescaleP16 promptly report any anticipated delays in completion to the relevant person(s)

This section contains examples and explanations of some of the terms used but does not form part of the standard.
Examples include manufacturers’ recommended work times, job times set by the company or a job time agreed with the customer.
Collision avoidance system
For example, forward collision warning, surround view sound, night vision, lane departure warning, AEB (Autonomous emergency braking), adaptive cruise control and stability control.
For example, night vision, glare-free high beam and pixel light, automatic parking, blind spot monitor, driver drowsiness detector, driver monitoring system, traffic sign recognition.
For example, lane change assistance, hill descent control
For example, pedestrian detection and warning systems.
These can be any of the following – light vehicles and commercial vehicles.
Additionally, these vehicles may be SI, CI, Hybrid, Electric or Alternative fuel vehicles.
