Alerts drivers when car departs from lane
This technology assists in maintaining safety by alerting drivers when it detects that the car has strayed from its intended lane.

Technology Functionality
The system recognizes the lane in which the car is traveling. When the driver unintentionally drifts out of the travelling lane, the system alerts the driver with a visual warning on the display and an audible signal.
Technology Configuration
Using cameras installed in the front or rear of the vehicle, the system recognizes the roadway lane markers. It analyzes the location of the lane markers in the driving lane, the direction of travel and the driver’s operation of the vehicle, and when it judges a driving lane change to be unintentional, it warns the driver. When a driver switches on the turn signal and intentionally changes lanes, the Lane Departure Warning system does not activate.
The Lane Departure Warning System operates only when the lane markings are clearly visible on the road. Speed limitations apply. Drivers should always drive safely and never rely wholly on the system.
