We have market-leading alignment equipment that uses laser technology to ensure precision alignment is achieved and it can handle all the complex vehicle geometry used in performance and prestige vehicles today.
The alignment of your suspension and drive train is essential for your safety and for the performance and efficiency of your vehicle. Here at Chartwell, we have a tailored service to ensure your alignment is set up as the manufacturer intended, regardless of the specialist accessories or upgrades you may have added to your vehicle.
ADAS SYSTEMS – These systems use sensors, cameras & radar which need expert adjustment and calibration following a repair.
Most road accidents that occur are due to human error. Advanced driver-assistance systems are systems developed to automate, adapt and enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving.
The automated system which is provided by ADAS to the vehicle is proven to reduce road fatalities, by minimising the human error. Safety features are designed to avoid collisions and accidents by offering technologies that alert the driver to potential problems or to avoid collisions by implementing safeguards and taking over control of the vehicle.
Adaptive features may automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, automate braking, incorporate GPS/ traffic warnings, connect to smartphones, alert the driver to other cars or dangers, lane departure warning system, automatic lane centring, or show what is in blind spots. These systems rely on your wheel alignment and geometry being correct in many cases, so it is crucial that all repairs are carried out with this in mind.
Many vehicles now have advanced driver-assistance systems as standard which require specialist attention to correctly adjust and calibrate them.
Examples of these systems are:
- Adaptive Lighting
- Automatic Distance Control (ADC)
- Multi Collision Braking / Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
- Lane Assist.
The staff here at Chartwell are fully trained and we carry the specialist ADAS equipment required to carry out the majority of ADAS system resets required on modern vehicles.
