Using a forward-facing camera mounted above the inside rearview mirror, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)59 works proactively to keep the ILX centered in a detected lane.
- If you drift away or steer out from the center of a detected lane without signaling, the Lane Departure Warning gives you an audio alert and message on the MID. If the LKAS system has been engaged, it will then gently tug the steering wheel and help guide the car back to the center of the lane.
- Though the system initiates a slight tug, the driver can easily hold course as the system will not take control of the wheel.
- On straight or gently curving roads, the LKAS works to keep the car in the center of the detected lane.
- The system will not steer the car indefinitely. If it senses no steering input from you for a certain period of time, the system presents a message instructing you to begin steering again.
