Lane Departure Warning (LDW)*

Updated 7/23/2018

The purpose of Lane Departure Warning (Lane Departure Warning) is to help the driver to reduce the risk of the vehicle accidentally leaving its own lane in certain situations on motorways and similar major routes.

Principle for LDW

(The figure is schematic - not model specific.)

(The figure is schematic - not model specific.)

A camera reads the side lines of the road/lane.

If the car crosses one of the side lines the driver is alerted with an acoustic signal.

Note

The driver is only warned once each time the wheels cross a line. So there is no acoustic alarm when there is a line between the car's wheels.

Warning

Lane assistance is merely a driver aid and does not engage in all driving situations or traffic, weather or road conditions.

The driver always bears ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the vehicle is driven safely and that applicable laws and road traffic regulations are followed.
