Lane Departure Warning (LDWS)
Keeps you on the right track
The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) is intended to prevent inadvertent lane changes and roadway departure accidents by alerting the driver if a crossing of the lane markings at either side is imminent.
LDWS is based on machine vision technology. A camera behind the windscreen is used to track the vehicle’s position relatively to the lane markings. If the vehicle is about to leave its lane at the right-hand or left-hand side, the radio is muted and a distinctive rumble strip sound is given from a speaker at the corresponding side to alert the driver to steer away from that side. Nuisance warnings are prevented by system logic to recognize intentional lane changes.
