1Road Departure Mitigation System  
Road Departure Mitigation System  
Alerts and helps assist you when the system detects a possibility of your vehicle  
crossing over detected lane markings, or approaching the outer edge of the  
pavement (into grass or gravel border) or a detected oncoming vehicle.  
Important Safety Reminder  
Like all assistance systems, the Road Departure  
Mitigation system has limitations.  
Overreliance 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, the outer edge of the pavement  
(bordered by grass or gravel) or a detected  
oncoming vehicles.  
The Road Departure Mitigation system alerts you  
when the system detects that you are approaching  
the outer edge of the pavement (into grass or gravel  
border), an oncoming vehicle, or drifting into another  
lane without using a turn signal.  
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not detect  
all lane markings or every instance of lane drift.  
The Road Departure Mitigation system may not  
detect that you are approaching the outer edge of  
the pavement (bordered by grass or gravel) or an  
oncoming vehicle.  
If your vehicle approaches any detected lane  
markings, the outer edge of the pavement  
(bordered by grass or gravel) or a detected  
oncoming vehicles when the turn signals have  
not been engaged, the system activates.  
u If the system cannot detect lane markings  
(in white or yellow), no assistance will be  
provided to avoid approaching oncoming  
vehicles. In addition to a visual alert, the  
system assists with steering and alerts you  
with rapid steering wheel vibrations to  
help you remain within the detected lane.

The system cancels assisting operations when you turn the steering wheel to avoid  
crossing over detected lane markings or approaching the outer edge of the  
pavement (into grass or gravel border) or an oncoming vehicle.  
1Road Departure Mitigation System  
There are times when you may not notice the Road  
Departure Mitigation system functions due to your  
operation of the vehicle, or road surface conditions.  
If the system operates several times without detecting driver response, the system  
beeps to alert you.  
You can change the settings for the Road Departure  
Mitigation system.  
If LKAS is off, the message below may appear if the  
system has determined that there is a possibility of  
your vehicle crossing over detected lane markings,  
the outer edge of the pavement (into a grass or  
gravel border) or oncoming vehicle.

1How the System Activates  
How the System Activates  
The Road Departure Mitigation system may  
automatically shut off and the safety support  
indicator (amber) comes and stays on.  
2 Indicators P. 90  
The system activates when all of the following conditions are met:  
The vehicle is traveling between about 45 and 90 mph (72 and 145 km/h).  
The vehicle is on a straight or slightly curved road.  
The turn signals are off.  
The Road Departure Mitigation system function can

Driven on the inside edge of a curve, or outside of  
a lane.  
The system makes a determination that the driver is not actively accelerating,  
braking, or steering.  
Driven in a narrow lane.

Road Departure Mitigation system Conditions and Limitations  
The system may not properly detect lane markings (in white or yellow), the outer  
edge of the pavement (into grass or gravel border) or an oncoming vehicle under  
certain conditions. Some examples of these conditions are listed below.  
Environmental conditions  
There is little contrast between lane lines and the roadway surface.  
Driving in bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.).  
Driving on a snowy or wet roadway.  
Driving into low sunlight (e.g., at dawn or dusk).  
Shadows of adjacent objects (trees, buildings, guard rails, vehicles, etc.) are  
parallel to white (or yellow) lines.  
Sudden changes between light and dark, such as the entrance or exit of a tunnel  
or the shadows of trees, buildings, etc.  
Strong light is reflected onto the roadway.  
Driving at night or in a dark place such as a tunnel (due to low-light conditions,  
lane lines, the road surface, or oncoming vehicles may not be illuminated).  
The distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you is too short, and  
lane lines and the road surface are not visible.  
The outer edge of the road is bordered by objects, materials, etc. other than grass  
or gravel.

Faint, multiple, or varied lane markings are visible on the roadway due to road  
repairs or old lane markings.  
The roadway has merging, split, or crossing lines, such as at an intersection or  
crosswalk.  
The lane markings are extremely narrow, wide, or changing.  
Part of the lane markings are hidden by an object, such as a vehicle.

uuHonda Sensing®uRoad Departure Mitigation System  
Vehicle conditions  
When lighting is weak due to dirt covering the headlight lenses, or there is poor  
visibility in a dark place due to the headlights being improperly adjusted.  
The front of the camera is covered by dirt, fog, rain, mud, wet snow, seals,  
accessories, stickers, or film on the windshield.  
Driving at night or in a dark place (e.g., a tunnel) with the headlights off.  
When the driver operates the brake pedal and steering wheel.  
There is residue on the windshield from the windshield wipers.  
An abnormal tire or wheel condition (incorrect sizes, varied sizes or construction,  
improperly inflated, compact spare tire, etc.).  
The vehicle is tilted due to heavy load in the cargo area or rear seats.  
Tire chains are installed.  
The suspension has been modified.  
The vehicle is towing a trailer.  
Examples of limitations on detection due to the condition of oncoming  
vehicles  
The oncoming vehicle or vehicle ahead of you is sideways.  
The oncoming vehicle jumps out in front of you.  
When the oncoming vehicle blends in with the background, preventing the  
system from recognizing it.  
The headlights of an oncoming vehicle are lit on one side or not lit on either side  
in a dark place.  
The distance between your vehicle and the oncoming vehicle is too short.  
Part of the oncoming vehicle is not visible due to the vehicle ahead of you.
