LANE DE­PAR­TURE WARN­ING AND LANE KEEP­ING AS­SIST

Techlife News - - News -

If your at­ten­tion wan­ders and your ve­hi­cle starts to drift out of the lane, a lane de­par­ture sys­tem warns you with a beep, vi­bra­tion or vis­ual cue on the in­stru­ment panel.

If the ve­hi­cle also is equipped with lane keep­ing as­sist, it will go be­yond just a warn­ing: It will make a mi­nor steer­ing or brak­ing cor­rec­tion to keep the car in its lane. Com­mon names for these sys­tems are LaneSense (Chrysler), Ac­tive Lane Keep­ing As­sist (Mercedes-Benz) and Lane De­par­ture Alert with Steer­ing As­sist (Toy­ota). NHTSA rec­om­mends lane de­par­ture warn­ing but does not yet rec­om­mend lane keep­ing as­sist.
