I keep hearing about Lane Keep Assist. What is it?

Lane keeping assist nudges a vehicle that is drifting out of its lane back into the intended lane of travel. This technology is frequently, but not always, included when a vehicle has a lane departure warning system.

To prevent the vehicle from drifting out of the lane, the steering makes a small correction or a small degree of braking force is applied to the front wheel opposite of the one about to drift out of the lane. When the correction occurs, the driver must center the vehicle in the lane of travel.

If the driver fails to center the car, it will drift to the opposite side of the lane where the lane keeping assist will once again steer or brake to prevent a lane departure. At this point, the car is essentially bouncing between the lane markings. Ultimately, without driver intervention, the angle of lane departure becomes too severe and the lane keeping assist system cannot prevent the vehicle from leaving the lane.
