What is Lane Keeping Assist System?
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) is an advanced safety feature in modern automobiles that helps drivers maintain their lane while driving on the highway. It is a type of driver assistance system that utilizes cameras and sensors to detect lane markings and alert the driver if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane. Once activated, LKAS will monitor the vehicle's position on the road and will provide corrective steering inputs to keep the vehicle within its lane. By doing this, LKAS reduces the driver's workload and creates a safer driving experience, particularly for long trips on the highway where driver fatigue can be a significant factor.
It is important to note that LKAS is not a fully autonomous driving system, but rather a driver assistance system meant to aid the driver in maintaining proper lane position. Therefore, it is still essential for the driver to remain alert and attentive while using LKAS and to keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.
How does it work?
At Pro-Adas, our technicians take great care to ensure that your vehicle is properly calibrated for LKAS ADAS. Our experienced and highly-trained technicians begin the calibration process by connecting a scan tool to the car’s computer. This allows them to access the manufacturer’s diagnostic information about the car, including its control systems and components.
Next, the technician will inspect the vehicle’s exterior to ensure that it is in proper working order. This includes checking for any obstructions that could interfere with the calibration process. Once all these steps have been completed, the technician will perform a series of tests on the car’s sensors, including lane departure and forward collision sensors.
After the tests have been completed, the technician will adjust the car’s steering wheel angle and position to ensure it is calibrated properly. The technician will then check and verify that the settings are correct before resetting all of the vehicle’s systems. Finally, they will reprogram the LKAS ADAS system according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Are there any safety features associated with LKAS?
Yes, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) comes with several safety features that can help prevent accidents and improve driver awareness on the road. One of the primary benefits of LKAS is that it can keep your vehicle centered in the lane, reducing the risk of drifting and lane departure. If the car senses that it is beginning to drift out of the lane, the system will apply corrective steering to bring it back on track. This feature can be especially helpful when driving on highways and other high-speed roads where lane departure can be particularly dangerous.
Another safety feature associated with LKAS is forward collision warning. Many LKAS systems are equipped with sensors that can detect when a collision is imminent and alert the driver through visual and auditory warnings. Some systems can even apply automatic emergency braking, braking the car in order to avoid an accident or reduce its severity.
It's important to note that while LKAS can enhance safety on the road, it should never replace attentive driving. It's still important for drivers to stay alert and aware of their surroundings at all times, and to never rely solely on the LKAS system to prevent accidents.
Can I do the calibration process myself or should I get professional help?
It is not recommended to calibrate the LKAS ADAS system yourself, as it requires specialized knowledge and equipment. It is important to have a qualified technician perform the calibration, as this ensures that the process is done correctly and all safety precautions are taken. Furthermore, only trained professionals will be able to check for any malfunctions or issues that could interfere with the calibration process. By trusting a professional with your LKAS ADAS calibration, you can ensure your car is functioning properly and safely on the road.
