The lane departure warning system Audi lane assist helps the driver to stay in lane, thus preventing accidents. If the vehicle begins to wander out of its lane, the assistance system warns the driver by means of vibrations in the steering wheel. Audi lane assist does not actively intervene in the driving situation.
Audi lane assist detects lane markings by means of a camera on the front of the vehicle. The system is operational as soon as the camera detects road markings on both sides of the vehicle's lane. If the vehicle starts to drift towards one of the detected lane markings, vibrations in the steering wheel warn the driver that the vehicle is moving out of its lane. No warning is given if the driver is indicating with the turn signal. The system is designed for driving on motorways and main roads, and works at speeds above approx. 60 km/h.
