Technological developments today demand automotive manufacturers to continuously improve safety and security systems in driving. One of the advanced features in the vehicle is applied to the safety system. Usually these features can only be found in medium-high class vehicles. One of the safety features commonly found in luxury cars is the Lane Departure Warning System.
This feature is designed to alert the driver if the vehicle starts to move out of the proper lane or marking line inadvertently. This is to anticipate if the driver loses concentration, due to exhaustion or sleepy while driving which would make the driver negligent in maintaining the speed of his car. This warning will be given in the form of an alarm sound or an indicator light.
This Lane Departure Warning System feature works with a camera mounted on the rear view mirror of the car. The camera will monitor the speed of the vehicle through the lines on the road, so this feature will work best if the line marking on lane is clearly visible. If the camera detects that the vehicle has left the identified track, either to the left or to the right, a warning will be given.
