uuHonda SensinguRoad Departure Mitigation System  
Road Departure Mitigation System  
Alerts and helps to assist you when the system detects a possibility of your vehicle  
unintentionally crossing over detected lane markings or the edge of the pavement,  
or leaving the roadway altogether.  
1Road Departure Mitigation System  
Important Safety Reminder  
Like all assistance systems, the Road Departure  
Mitigation system has limitations.  
Over-reliance on the Road Departure Mitigation  
system may result in a collision. It is always your  
responsibility to keep the vehicle within your driving  
lane.  
How the System Works  
The front camera behind the rearview mirror  
monitors left and right lane markings (in white  
or yellow) and the outer edge of the  
The Road Departure Mitigation system only alerts you  
when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in  
use. The Road Departure Mitigation system may not  
detect all lane markings or lane or roadway  
departures; accuracy will vary based on weather,  
speed and lane marker condition. It is always your  
responsibility to safely operate the vehicle and avoid  
collisions.  
pavement (bordered by grass or gravel). If  
your vehicle is getting too close to detected  
lane markings or the outer edge of the  
pavement (bordered by grass or gravel)  
without a turn signal activated, the system, in  
addition to a visual alert, applies steering  
torque and alerts you with rapid vibrations on  
the steering wheel, to help you remain within  
the detected lane.  
You can read about handling information for the  
camera equipped with this system.  
If the system determines that the vehicle is  
about to veer off the edge of the pavement, it  
will alert the driver with an audible warning  
instead of steering wheel vibrations.

If the system determines that its steering input is insufficient to keep your vehicle on  
the roadway, it may apply braking.  
u Braking is applied only when the lane markings are solid continuous lines.  
If LKAS is off and you have selected Normal or  
Narrow from the customised options using the driver  
information interface, the message below will appear  
if the system has determined that there is a possibility  
of your vehicle crossing over detected lane markings  
or the outer edge of the pavement (into grass or  
gravel border). If you have selected Wide, however,  
the message will only appear if the vehicle is about to  
cross over the outer edge of the pavement.  
The system cancels assisting operations when you turn the steering wheel to avoid  
crossing over detected lane markings.  
If the system operates several times without  
detecting driver response, the system beeps to  
alert you. After that, the warning to the left is  
displayed and the Road Departure Mitigation  
system is partially disabled.

under certain conditions. Some examples of these conditions are listed below.  
Environmental conditions

Strong light is reflected onto the roadway.  
Driving in the shadows of trees, buildings, etc.  
Shadows of adjacent objects are parallel to lane markings.  
Roadway objects or structures are misinterpreted as lane markers.  
Reflections on the interior of the windscreen.  
Driving at night or in a dark condition such as a tunnel.  
The outer edge of the pavement is bordered by objects, material etc. other than
