Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) come in many forms: from systems that apply the brakes if they sense an imminent crash (Autonomous Emergency Braking) to ones that help maintain a constant distance from the car ahead (Adaptive Cruise Control) to others that help keep the vehicle in the lane (Lane Keep Assistance).

They operate using a wide range of technologies from cameras, to radars and lidar systems which when required can operate both independently and in fusion with other systems that help to identify and avoid potential hazards either by warning the driver, or by automatically taking over an element of the vehicle such as braking, or steering if the driver doesn’t react.


Did you know?

It is important to remember that these are driver assistance systems, and are designed to support the driver.  Not replace them.  You are ultimately responsible and liable.  So, do not over rely on them and make sure that you are 100% in control of the vehicle at all times.

We are Edinburgh’s ONLY ADAS centre capable of recalibration of windscreen mounted front facing safety cameras and bumper mounted radar devices.

Premier Windscreens use the Hella Gutmann system to re-calibrate front facing camera’s, the process normally takes around 30-60 minutes dependent on vehicle make and model,  you can then be assured the vehicle’s safety features are working perfectly thus helping to keep you safe on the road.

Most common questions, require any other questions answered please drop us a message

Do i need a repair or replacement?

 Premier Windscreens always prefer to repair before replacing with new glass which saves time, money and the enviroment. Please visit our Windscreen Repair page for more infromation.

My windscreen is cracked is it still safe to drive?

Yes, modern windscreens are basically a thick layer of resin ( Polyvinyl butyral (or PVB) sandwiched between two layers of glass. When your glass is damaged its the outer layer that has cracked. So still safe to continue using until we can replace the windscreen. Obviously if the damage is in your field of vision we would not recommend driving and many police forces would consider it a motoring offence and you may be liable for points and/or fine. 

When can i drive my vehicle after windscreen replacement?

1 hour in most instances unless technician advises otherwise.  We use the best urethane in the business made my Sika.

Please keep do not wash your vehicle for 48 hours to allow the urethane to full cure after fitment. 

Are your technicians qualified?

Yes all our technicians hold ATA or NVQ accreditation.
