Kia’s DRIVE WiSE a Lane Keeping Assist System

May 7th, 2020 by

Kia Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) is a feature included under Kia’s DRIVEWiSE Driver Assistive technologies. LKA is a safety system that helps prevent accidents by warning the driver and controlling the steering function if sensors detect that the vehicle is departing from its current lane.

How Does it Work?

With the help of a front view camera in the windshield, LKA detects the vehicle’s position within the lane and the edges of that lane. If the system detects that the vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of its current lane, visual and audible warnings will alert the driver and the vehicle will steer itself back into the lane.

If the driver activates the turn signals to move from one lane to another, these warnings will not activate because the system will detect that the lane departure is intentional.
