Lane Keeping Assistance
Lane keeping assistance helps you correct the course of your vehicle. The system uses a forward-looking camera that detects lane markings in front of the vehicle. It applies a brief corrective action (steering or braking) or it can provide additional steering force and make a warning sound if your vehicle starts to drift outside the lane without using a turn signal.
- These systems may only operate over limited speed ranges. Most systems operate at speeds over 70 km/hr.
- Drivers must turn on these systems by using a button on the dashboard.
Things to keep in mind
- These systems must be able to identify lane markings to work.
- These systems do not react if you show intent to make a lane change through a steering movement, or by using the turn signal.
- These systems do not react on tight bends, if lane markings are poor or missing, or if you take your hands off of the steering wheel.
- These systems require the driver to keep his/her hands on the wheel.
- Drivers are encouraged to read the owner’s manual to become familiar with the system and the conditions when system operation is different or is not guaranteed.
