Kia Soul. Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system detects the lane markers and road edge on the road with a front view camera at the front windshield, and assists the driver’s steering to help keep the vehicle in the lanes.

When the system detects the vehicle straying from its lane or road, it alerts the driver with a visual and audible warning, while applying a countersteering torque, trying to prevent the vehicle from moving out of its lane or road.
