LKAS enhances steering precision and provides a more confident driving experience on narrow roadways.
The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)11 is designed to assist the driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified and no turn signal is in use.
The system applies mild steering torque to bring the vehicle back to the center of the lane.
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 works at speeds of between 45 mph and 90 mph.
If LKAS determines the vehicle is deviating from the center of a detected lane without a turn signal activated, it will 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.
LKAS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition.
System operation is affected by extreme interior heat.
The driver remains responsible for safely operating the vehicle and avoiding collisions.
