Road Departure Mitigation System
In the event you unintentionally drift off the road, the Road Departure Mitigation System is there to assist.
- The system uses a camera to identify the side of the road, including painted lane lines, Botts' Dots and cat eye markers.
- When the system detects the ILX is about to leave the road, it warns you with an MID warning message, an amber heads-up warning and a tightening of the seat belt.
- The system then uses the active steering function of the Lane Keeping Assist System — as well as the vehicle’s autonomous braking capability — to guide the ILX back into its detected lane or keep it from departing the road altogether.
