ADAS Radar and Camera Calibration

ADAS systems (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are designed to ensure driving safety and comfort and are becoming increasingly common in latest-generation vehicles, even in the utility segment.
Functions include autonomous emergency braking, assisted speed control, lane keep assist, pedestrian and traffic sign recognition, to name just a few.

The ability to provide professional services for these systems is no longer an option but a practical necessity if you want to keep pace with the times and offer your customers a top class assistance.

To help vehicle repair professionals work on these sophisticated active safety systems, TEXA has developed a complete range of modular, multi-brand tools that satisfy the needs of glass replacement specialists, body shops, multi-brand garages and tyre fitters.Products: RCCS 2 (Radar and Camera Calibration System), available in three versions CCS (Camera Calibration System), ACS (All Around Calibration System), Radar blind spot calibration reflector and ADAS TRUCK kit.

RCCS 2: TEXA’s radar and camera calibration system comes in three versions

RCCS 2 allows you to work independently in all phases of repair and even check ride height on cars and light commercials to offer your customers a simple, safe and highly professional service.
RCCS 2 comes in three versions: WITH WHEEL CLAMPS, WITH TYRE CLAMPS, WITH RIDE HEIGHT CONTROL KIT, CCD SENSORS AND WHEEL CLAMPS
RCCS 2 (Radar and Camera Calibration System)
RCCS 2’s high-performance optical alignment lets you perform all kinds of calibration work on radar and camera systems quickly and accurately.
The system comes in two versions:WITH WHEEL CLAMPS,  WITH TYRE CLAMPS
Latest generation laser technology
These new distance meters are TEXA’s latest solution for guaranteeing the high level of professionalism and precision now demanded from the world’s garages.

RCCS 2 with integrated ride height control

By choosing an RCCS 2 with ride height control kit, you can offer customers rapid and professional service. This solution simplifies the work of aligning the vehicle with the multifunctional structure and also permits accurate checks to be made on its status.
The kit features four electronic CCD detectors with infrared sensors for installation on the RCCS 2 structure and on the wheels, using four-point wheel clamps. Thanks to the light weight of the detectors and the absence of connecting cables between the front and rear, the system is extremely practical and ensures absolute precision in measuring the positions of the vehicle’s corners.

Excellent accuracy is also guaranteed by TOE AND THRUST ANGLE CHECK, a software application that lets you perform two types of check in a few simple steps: a quick check on the alignment of the RCCS 2 system with respect to the vehicle’s thrust angle and the garage floor, and a check on wheel alignment.

These checks must be completed in preparation for the next phase of radar and/or camera calibration.

Self-centring wheel clamps

TEXA’s winning solution for perfect vehicle alignment is based on new self-centring, quick-fit wheel clamps that can be fitted with pointing bands or the innovative CCD detector system (RCCS 2 with digital calibration kit).

Precision panel adjustment knob

The RCCS 2 structure features a practical knob at the rear for accurately adjusting panel position and ensuring perfect perpendicularity to the vehicle.

The CCS, a multi-brand kit for Camera Calibration

While in the past, if the windscreen was damaged or broken, all you had to do was replace it, now it is necessary to restore the proper operation of the cameras dedicated to driver assistance.
The CCS (Camera Calibration System) has been designed to create the best combination according to the technician’s operational needs. It is composed of a robust support on which the several panels divided by make are to be positioned.
The CCS can also be used with a graduated mat and two supports to centre the axle on the wheels through laser levels (optional).
The manufacturing features of the Kit make it a solution that is extremely easy to use, handy and easy to carry, even for use outside of the workshop.
The CCS is perfect for those who cannot permanently dedicate an area of their workshop to the calibration of cameras: in fact, once the operations on one or several vehicles is complete, all the equipment can be disassembled and easily stored away.

IR Calibration Target

This extremely useful accessory permits rapid and extremely accurate calibration of the vehicle’s infrared camera, a device that is essential to road safety as it helps drivers identify persons or animals ahead in the dark.

Positioned in front of the vehicle, the IR Calibration Target simulates the presence of a warm body.

Reflector for blind spot radar calibration

It is an essential device to calibrate the ultrasonic radars installed in vehicles such as HYUNDAI, HONDA, KIA, LEXUS, MAZDA, MITSUBISHI, SUBARU, TOYOTA.

It is composed of a metal reflector cone, a laser and a goniometer jig to help the operator position the pyramid cone correctly.

The reflector developed by TEXA is flexible as it can be used for the front, side and rear radars.

ACS (All Around Calibration System)

The ACS system is particularly useful as it permits the calibration of 360° cameras and Doppler devices* on vehicles of the VAG Group (AUDI, SEAT, SKODA, VOLKSWAGEN AND LAMBORGHINI).
The ACS system comprises an aluminium structure that holds two horizontal panels and practical, vertical supports for two additional magnetic plates. The base incorporates three holders for the laser distance meters needed to verify the correct alignment of the structure with respect to the vehicle.
This TEXA solution is extremely practical and comes with wheels for rapid, easy movement. This is an important characteristic as it allows a single operator to perform all operations quickly and easily, saving resources and time for other jobs.
 

ADAS TRUCK Kit

Some truck and commercial vehicle manu-facturers require specific equipment for the proper calibration of driver assistance systems, which include cameras, radars and sensors that govern the Adaptive Cruise Control.
TEXA offers an adjustment system that includes a measuring bar, panels divided by make – dedicated to cameras and laser devices – that are essential for the correct alignment and calibration of WABCO, TRW and TRW/Knorr radars.
The ADAS TRUCK Kit also includes a set of clamps with laser pointer, a laser to adjust the Adaptive Cruise Control and the mirror adapter for WABCO radars.
Furthermore, the IDC5 software guides the operator step by step in the case of vehicles that carry out the self-calibration through on-road adaptation procedures.
