Vehicles equipped with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADASs) – for example, advanced emergency braking (AEB), lane keep assist (LKA) and blind-spot detection – rely on sensors or cameras that are designed and calibrated to operate within specific height ranges by the vehicle manufacturer, with a specific field of view (FOV) and orientation relative to the vehicle body and running condition (thrust angle).

The objectives of this project were to review international literature and experience of the modification and calibration of ADAS-equipped vehicles to assess the consequences of such modifications on ADAS performance and identify any measures that may have already been taken to address issues. This information was then analysed to make recommendations for New Zealand policymakers and regulators for ADASs on vehicles with altered ride height or rake angle (pitch).
