LANE KEEP ASSIST (LKA)
Lane Keep Assist
LKA is an enhancement of the lane departure warning system.
The LKA feature aids the driver to keep the vehicle in the current carriageway lane, e.g., while driving on a multi-lane road. When the vehicle becomes too close to lane markings on either side, without the direction indicators being used, the driver is made aware of it.
A rotational force is automatically applied to the steering wheel. The force can be felt by the driver and it indicates that a steering correction should be made. The rotational force can be overridden to make a lane change without use of the direction indicators.
When an override is made, and a lane change is made without use of the direction indicators, lane departure warning alerts are triggered.
When the lane departure warning system is switched on, the LKA feature can be selected via Driver Assistance menu, in the instrument panel menu.
When the ignition is switched off and on again, the last choice of lane departure warning or LKA is reinstated.
