Lane Keeping Aid (LKA) - limitations

Updated 7/23/2018

Lane Keeping Aid (Lane Keeping Aid) camera sensor has limitations in a similar way to the human eye.

For more information, read about camera sensor limitations and see Collision warning system - operation.


In certain demanding situations Lane assistance may have difficulty assisting the driver in the right way - in which case it is recommended to deactivate the function.

Examples of such situations may be:

  • roadworks
  • winter road conditions
  • poor road surface
  • very sporty driving style
  • poor weather with reduced visibility.

Hands on the steering wheel

In order for Lane Keeping Aid to operate, the driver must have his/her hands on the steering wheel. LKA continually monitors this. If hands are not detected on the steering wheel then a text message is shown, prompting the driver to actively steer the car.

If the driver does not follow the request to begin steering then Lane Keeping Aid goes into standby mode and will remain in this mode until the driver begins to steer the car again.
