Lane Keeping Assistance

Lane Keeping or Lane Centering Assistance helps drivers to keep their vehicle within a traffic lane.

It uses a front-facing video camera sensor to detect the lane markings to the right and left of the vehicle.

In vehicles with drive-by-wire or electric power steering, it steers gently but firmly in the opposite direction in order to keep the vehicle in the lane.

In vehicles without electric power steering, it may use the electronic stability program to brake individual wheels.

Drivers can normally override the function at any time, to retain control of the vehicle. If they activate the turn signal in order to change lane or turn, the system should not intervene.
