Advanced Driver Assistance Systems: 2019 Hyundai Kona

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems: 2019 Hyundai Kona

While many have noticed that advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are showing up on vehicles, there still is confusion on what is required of these systems after a collision occurs. The Ask I-CAR team frequently gets questions in regard to calibration of ADAS. Many of these questions can be answered simply by using the OEM Calibration Requirements Search. However, there are some questions that may need more details than the calibration search provides. Let’s take a look at the 2019 Hyundai Kona ADAS.

For 2019, the Kona has standard collision warning, collision braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and rear view systems. Optional systems include bind spot detection, rear cross traffic, and park assist. This means that there is a large array of cameras and sensors that collision repairers will need to be aware of, many of which will require calibrations. Information for when these calibrations are required can be found in the vehicle specific repair information, and also on the 2019 Hyundai Kona OEM Calibration Requirements Search page.

In the front bumper cover, there are four ultrasonic sensors. There are an additional four sensors located in the rear bumper. These sensors are used by the parking assist system. These sensors do not require calibration.

Behind the front bumper cover, located below the bumper reinforcement, is a radar sensor. This sensor sends information to the collision warning and collision braking systems. Calibration will be required for this sensor after certain events. The calibration procedure for this sensor is a static calibration.

In front of the rearview mirror, attached to the windshield, is a forward-facing camera. This camera sends data to the lane departure warning, lane keep assist, collision warning, and collision braking systems. There are several events that make calibration necessary for this camera. This is a static calibration procedure.

The rear lift gate houses another camera. It is located in the center of the lift gate, below the Hyundai emblem. This camera sends information to the rear view system. Calibration is not required for this camera.

Located behind the rear bumper cover, there is a radar sensor on each corner of the vehicle. The sensors are located below the tail lamps. These sensors are used by the blind spot detection and rear cross traffic systems. There are multiple events that require calibration for these sensors.
