Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

What’s the Benefit?

LKAS11 can help provide a more confident driving experience on narrow roadways.

The Feature:

The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)11 is designed to determine whether the vehicle is unintentionally leaving the center of a detected lane, and can help bring the vehicle back to center if it determines this is the case.

  • The system, a part of the Honda Sensing® suite of active driver-assistive technologies, uses a windshield-mounted camera to look for lane markers, and the Electric Power Steering (EPS) to help steer the vehicle.
  • The system is able to identify Botts’ Dots and other lane markings, and is intended for highway use, working at speeds of between 45 and 90 mph.
  • If LKAS determines the vehicle is deviating from the center of a detected lane with no turn-signal activation by the driver, it will apply modest steering torque to attempt to steer the vehicle back into the center of the lane.
  • This can be especially useful when traveling on narrow roadways, such as carpool lanes.
  • The LKAS system is not intended to take over driving or steering the vehicle—control of the vehicle remains the driver’s responsibility; drivers must keep their hands on the steering wheel for the system to operate.
  • LKAS only assists the driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist.
