Lane departure warning system (LDWS) is intended to prevent inadvertent lane changes and roadway departure accidents by alerting the driver if a crossing of the lane markings at either side is imminent.
Keeps you on the right track
LDWS is based on machine vision technology. A
camera behind the windscreen is used to track the vehicle’s position relatively
to the lane markings. If the vehicle is about to leave its lane at the
right-hand or left-hand side, the radio is muted and a distinctive rumble strip
sound is given from a speaker at the corresponding side to alert the driver to
steer away from that side. Nuisance warnings are prevented by system logic to
recognize intentional lane changes.
* LDWS is standard on CF / XF vehicles with MX-11 or MX-13 engine to be registered in an EU or EFTA country and meeting the following conditions:
- 4x2, 6x2 or 6x4 chassis
- over 8 tonnes GVM
- not being Off Road (CF Construction models) or Special Purpose Vehicles (e.g. fire engines)
