This term is part of the following categories: Safety, Technology, Human factors, Sensors, Vehicle system

 

Version: 3.0, Release date: October 2020

Definition: Vehicle system that uses cameras or other inputs to detect impending lane exceedances by the vehicle and provide visual, auditory or haptic feedback to the human driver.

NOTE: Unlike lane centring and lane-keeping assist, this system does not actively apply any control inputs to the vehicle. Current systems rely on lane markings of sufficient quality and visibility to support the function. The system can be cancelled by use of the turn signals.
