What Is Lane Keeping Assist?  

Lane-Keeping Assist is a significant feature of this technology in the era of advanced driver assistance technology. In autonomous technology, LKA is one of the leading parts of it. It helps your vehicle to prevent unnecessary drifting out of your lane. It will alert you by light, sound, and other types of warnings. If you miss those warnings, it will gently pull your vehicle back to the middle of the lane.  

How Does Lane Keeping Assist work?  

LKA works through a forward-facing video camera. It keeps an eye on lane markings ahead of the car and ensures that the vehicle doesn’t get too close to the lane markings. Some LKA settings warn by giving an audible signal before it steps in. It allows you to reset the car before its impacts on steering manually. But you are not responsive toward its manual warning; it gently takes it back to the middle. Maybe it sounds a bit aggressive but remember, safety should be the priority.


Is It Worth It?  

If you are a daily user of the main road or highway network, LKA is your guardian angel for you. But spending more time in urban areas will not be the best option for you. Though it is intelligent technology, it can’t be an alternative for safe and attentive driving. This technology is not strong enough against bad weather. This system cannot detect potential crashes or road boundaries. So, you can entirely rely on this system.
