How to Add the Lane Keeping System with FORScan
The Lane-Keeping System is an advanced system designed to help drivers stay centered in the lane. It works using a forward-looking camera mounted behind the rearview mirror of you vehicle to monitor the lane markings on the road and detect if you're unintentionally drifting out of the lane.
This video will show how you can add the Lane Keeping System in your vehicle using FORScan. Special thanks to Nick the car guy for creating this insightful step-by-step FORScan guide.
The Lane-Keeping Alert alert system warns drivers if they are drifting out of the lane by vibrating the steering wheel and showing a warning on the screen. When the driver is slow to react to an unintentional drifting, the system can offer a steering torque assistance to help your vehicle get back to the correct lane.
The system reacts based on the mode settings set up by the driver. These mode settings are:
Alert Mode: The steering wheel vibrates when an unintentional drifting is detected.
Aid Mode: When an unintentional drifting is detected, steering torque is activated to direct the vehicle back to the center of the lane.
Alert + Aid Mode: The steering torque is automatically activated to steer the vehicle back to the right lane as soon as an unintentional drifting is detected. The steering wheel will then vibrate if the unintentional drifting continues.
The Lane-Keeping Alert alert system is designed for multilane roads, it deactivates automatically when the vehicle is running below the speed of 43mph. You can also deactivate it manually.
The technology also records how often your vehicle has veered away from its lane. It displays a coffee cup on the display, suggesting that it is time for the driver to stop the vehicle and take a break.
To make such changes from the FORScan guide above, you will need a trusted OBD2 adapter. These featured OBD2 adapters are considered the best FORScan adapters available in the market today.
Note: For FORScan coding modifications, we recommend using the OBD2 USB adapter for it provides a more stable connection.
