uuHonda Sensing®uLane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)  
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)  
Provides steering input to help keep the vehicle in the middle of a detected lane and  
provides tactile and visual alerts if the vehicle is detected drifting out of its lane.  
Important Safety Reminders  
The LKAS is for your convenience only. It is not an  
autonomous driving system and always requires  
driver attention and control. The system does not  
work if you take your hands off the steering wheel or  
fail to steer the vehicle.  
Steering input assist  
The system applies torque to the steering to keep the vehicle between the left  
and right lane lines. The applied torque becomes stronger as the vehicle gets  
closer to either of the lane lines.  
Front Sensor  
Tactile and visual alerts  
The LKAS is convenient when it is used on  
expressways or freeways.  
Rapid vibrations on the steering wheel  
and a warning display alert you that  
the vehicle is drifting out of a detected  
Monitors the  
lane lines  
Do not place objects on the instrument panel.  
Objects may reflect on the windshield and prevent  
correct detection of the traffic lanes.  
The LKAS only alerts you when lane drift is detected  
without a turn signal in use. The LKAS may not detect  
all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will  
vary based on weather, speed, and lane marker  
It is always your responsibility to safely operate the  
vehicle and avoid collisions.  
The LKAS may not work properly or may work  
improperly under the certain conditions:  
2 LKAS Conditions and Limitations P. 541  
When you operate the turn signals to change lanes, the system is suspended, and  
resumes after the signals are off.  
If you make a lane change without operating the turn signals, the LKAS alerts  
activate, and torque is applied to the steering.  
You can read about handling information for the  
camera equipped with this system.
