The Honda Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) is a safety feature included with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assist technologies. LKAS is designed to make driving more convenient by helping to keep your vehicle in the middle of a detected lane, and provides alerts and steering adjustments if the vehicle is detected drifting out of its lane.
LKAS is meant to improve long, highway drives when your vehicle has a tendency to drift out of its intended lane. The system uses a windshield-mounted camera that detects the lane markings on a highway, while the Electric Power Steering (EPS) will help guide your vehicle to the middle of a detected lane. If LKAS senses your vehicle is drifting out of its lane you will receive a visual alert on the instrument panel and subtle steering correction.
LKAS generally operates on its own, but if the system needs to be activated for any reason follow the steps below:
The vehicle must be traveling at 45 to 90 miles per hour and your hand(s) must be on the steering wheel for LKAS to operate.
LKAS is a wonderful piece of driver-assist technology that is very helpful on long stretches of highway where your mind and vehicle tend to drift. If you would like to see the benefits of Honda Sensing and LKAS stop into Vern Eide Honda in Sioux Falls to test drive your favorite Honda model.
