New Code: Road Edge Warning

The Lane Departure Warning system issues a warning at speeds above approx. 40 mph/65 km/h if the vehicle is about to leave the lane on roads with lane markings. The steering wheel begins vibrating gently.

As presently set, it detects only road markings (i.e. painted lane markings). With the following code change, it can also detect roadside curbs or grass mediums.

KAFAS->3000 TLC_CODING, 10->ROAD_EDGE_WARNING_ENABLED->grass_curb (default is nicht_aktiv) (Other possible settings, curb, grass)

In order for this to work, you of course need to have the Lane Departure Warning System option (SA5AD).

Just be careful testing that you do not end up scratching your rims

None of these code changes are possible without the resources, tools and advice provided by Shawn, Sean and others.

Nice one to add if you have the Lane Departure Warning. Nice find!

DreamCar,

Like you said, you have to get pretty close to the curb to get the vibration of the wheel. You do see the indicator come up when it "sees" the curb.

By the way, there are ways to "narrow" the lanes so a vibration comes up when you are farther apart from the line/curb. I just find it annoying, because it gives you a very narrow window for staying in the lane.

Dreamcar,

I've been testing this for quite a while, thanks to JEG23. It absolutely acts differently when not activated. Previously it wouldn't pick up curbs/grass berms, but it does now. Good stuff.

Different subject. When are you getting your new car? Still holding out for the 2014 LCI?

Did anyone code this feature on a F15? The F15 has the lane departure option but couldn't find the KAFAS module.
