Lane Keeping Assist System and Blind Spot Monitoring

The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Blind Spot Monitoring are two features under Honda Sensing®, Honda’s suite of award winning driver-assistive technologies which is now standard on many 2020 Honda models. Together, these two features help the driver remain in the center of their lane and stay safe and alert when changing lanes.

Lane Keeping Assist

LKAS uses a camera in the front of the vehicle to detect the lane lines on the road. The system then uses this information to keep the vehicle in the center of the lane, and will adjust the steering wheel if the car begins to veer to the left or the right of that detected lane.

Blind Spot Monitoring

Blind Spot Monitoring uses radar to detect if there are vehicles in either of the adjacent lanes. If it detects that there is a vehicle, a warning signal will light up on the side view mirror. If the turn signal is activated while the system detects a vehicle in the adjacent lane, the warning symbol will flash and the system will beep until the area is clear or until the turn signal is turned off.
