Van Hool 2014 CX45 Motorcoach Lane Departure Warning System Evaluation

This report documents an evaluation of a 2014 Van Hool Motorcoach equipped with a lane departure warning system. The main objective of this work was to perform test track research on lateral crash warning systems applications for motorcoaches. This work supports the 2012 U.S. Department of Transportation’s Motorcoach Safety Action Plans and Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) requirements. The system was evaluated for warning capabilities when presented with real-world driving situations in the safety of the test track. Test scenarios included lane change maneuvers for both straight-lane and curved-lane tests. Test results indicate that alerts were issued within 0.2m after crossing the lane line for straight line tests. The system performance on the curved left-side tests was comparable to the straight line tests. However, in curved right-side tests the system did not produce warnings in 3 out of 20 tests and produced warnings further into the lane change.
