Lane Departure Warning uses a front-mounted camera to read road lines and markings, and issues an audio alert if it senses the vehicle drifting or veering out of its lane. When necessary, Lane Keep Assist applies slight corrective steering measures to keep your G80 within its lane.
LANE KEEP ASSIST
The Genesis Lane Departure Warning System with Lane Keep Assist is designed to notify the driver if the vehicle is leaving the lane of travel by shaking the steering wheel and flashing a display signal. Under certain circumstances, it may also provide light steering counter-assist to help guide the vehicle back into its lane. It is a supplemental assist, and does not replace the need for extreme care and attention by the driver.
The Lane Departure Warning System will not work under all circumstances. It functions when it is able to detect painted lane markings. It cannot function if the lane markings cannot be seen clearly if the lines are faded, or during dusk without headlamps on, with snow, rain, sleet, dust, leaves or standing water on road, sudden changes in brightness such as shadows, tunnel exits/entrances, low sunlight angle causing reflections, multiple lane markings or criss-crossed lines, tar crack sealer and cracked or broken road surfaces. It also may not function on very rough roads, when walls, curbs or concrete barriers are close by, or if following another car too closely. Since it “sees” the lane markings using a camera in the upper windshield area, it is imperative this area be clear and free of blockage such as stickers, dirt, snow, tinting material, markings and labels. Avoid putting objects on the dashboard that may reflect light or images onto the system camera area.
Lane Keep Assist is not a substitute for safe driving practices, but is a supplemental assist only. The driver is responsible for always maintaining command and control of the vehicle and must keep hands on the wheel at all times. Do not drive if you are drowsy. Drivers must read their Owner’s Manual thoroughly before using Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist.
