Exploring Relationships Between Observed Activation Rates and Functional Attributes of Lane Departure Prevention

It has been observed that the use of lane departure warning/prevention systems is lower than other driver assistance systems and that activation rates vary by vehicle manufacturer. This study examined the performance of lane maintenance systems from four automakers: Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, and Volvo to identify differences in functional characteristics. In tests, a driver induced lane drifts on curves and straightaways. The systems from Volvo and Chevrolet, the manufacturers associated with higher observed lane departure prevention system use rates, provided steering input earlier and more often avoided crossing lane markers by more than 35 cm as compared with systems from other manufacturers.
