In certain demanding situations LKA may find it difficult to assist the driver correctly - in which case it is recommended that LKA is switched off.
Examples of such a situation could be:
- 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.
