Lane Departure Warning technology serves as a useful preventative measure for drivers. It is an automated system that warns when it senses an unintentional lane departure. The system will work both when lane lines are visible and when lane lines are not in view.
It utilizes sensors to detect lane markings as well as crosswinds, steering angle, and lane angle to determine the lane’s position. In some cases, cruise control functions may be disengaged if lane markings are not in view. Lane Departure Warning technology is a great way to help keep drivers aware of their surroundings or any sudden lane changes.
