What is the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)?

The Lane Departure Warning System is a safety system that helps to prevent accidents. Drivers can easily become distracted and lose full focus on the road, especially at the end of a long and tiring working day, therefore LDWS helps drivers to remain alert. Read on to find out how LDWS works.


How does LDWS work?

The Lane Departure Warning System assesses where the truck is driving and detects the lines on the road. If the vehicle is in danger of leaving the lane, this triggers a warning, helping truck drivers to remain alert. The system takes into account whether the direction indicator is being used, thereby preventing false alarms when a driver is intentionally changing lane.
