2013 Ford Fusion - Lane Keeping System

2013 Ford Fusion Lane Keeping

The new 2013 Ford Fusion is packed with so many new driver-assist features, but you may be asking what are driver assist features? Well, they essentially extend the driver's own senses to keep you safer on the road. Features like the new 2013 Ford Fusion Lane Keeping System will be used as the foundation for safety in future vehicles.

The 2013 Ford Fusion Lane Keeping System is actually pretty straight forward. Lane Keeping helps drivers avoid unintentional lane changes through the use of a lane-detecting camera mounted in the front windshield. When the camera sees the vehicle is getting too close to the white or yellow line it will alert them by gently vibrating the steering wheel. Vibrations aren’t the only things the Lane Keeping System will use to keep you on course. The 'Lane Keeping Aid' takes it step further by applying “steering torque” to the wheel, informing the driver of which way they need to move the wheel in order to get back in the center of the lane. Both features can be used at the same time, or separately.  It's also important to note that the driver can easily override both systems.
Here's a detailed breakdown of the entire Lane Keeping System:
