How Does Mazda’s Lane Departure Warning System Work?

Active safety technology is extremely popular on vehicles today. Designed to help prevent accidents, many automakers offer various active safety features or an active safety package which allows customers to purchase a vehicle with the active safety features that they want. Mazda offers many active safety features from lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, radar cruise control and lane departure warning.  

Lane departure warning system was designed to reduce the risk of accidents by warning the driver of unintentional lane departures. Please be aware that all active safety features have its limitations and lane departure warning system may not perform as expected due to factors such as bad weather including rain, snow, fog and road conditions such as indistinct road markings and tight curves.

The lane departure warning system detects line markings on the road surface and warns the driver of unintentional lane departures. When the lane change is accompanied by the turn signal or acceleration, the system recognizes the maneuver as intentional and does not sound an alarm.

Mazda’s lane departure warning system is included in its i-ACTIVSENSE which is an umbrella term that covers a series of advanced safety technologies which use milliwave radars and cameras. You can read more on Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE here.
