Lane Departure Warning (LDW) - operation

Updated 7/23/2018

Lane Departure Warning is one of the functions in the Driver Alert System - sometimes also referred to as LDW (Lane Departure Warning).

The function is intended for use on motorways and similar major roads in order to reduce the risk of the vehicle accidentally leaving its own lane in certain situations.

LDW is complemented in the combined instrument panel with intuitive graphics in different situations. Here are some examples:

  • The LDW symbol has GREY side lines - the function is in standby mode because the speed is below 65 km/h.
