How does the Lane-Keeping System in the Mach-E differentiate between intentional and unintentional lane departures?
The Lane-Keeping System in the Mach-E differentiates between intentional and unintentional lane departures through various sensors and algorithms. It uses a combination of camera-based lane detection and steering assistance to detect the vehicle’s position within the lane. When the system detects an unintentional lane departure, such as drifting without a turn signal, it can provide steering torque to help the driver stay centered in the lane and issue visual or audible alerts to notify the driver of the deviation. Additionally, the system may consider factors such as the vehicle’s speed, the angle of departure, and the driver’s input to determine the nature of the lane departure, helping the system respond appropriately to different driving scenarios enhancing safety and driver assistance.
Does the Lane-Keeping System in the Mach-E provide visual or audible alerts for unintentional lane departures?
Yes, the Lane-Keeping System in the Mach-E provides visual and audible alerts for unintentional lane departures. The system offers both an alert mode and an aid mode. In alert mode, the driver gets a warning with three short steering wheel vibrations when unintentional lane drifting is detected. In aid mode, the system applies steering torque to help direct the vehicle back into its lane when unintentional lane drifting is detected. The system also deactivates when the turn signal is engaged to avoid interference with intentional lane changing. These features contribute to enhancing driver awareness and safety during driving.
Is the Lane-Keeping System in the Mach-E automatically turned on with MyKey?
Yes, the Lane-Keeping System in the Mach-E automatically turns on with MyKey. When the vehicle is on using MyKey, the Lane-Keeping System will turn on automatically with “Alert Mode” selected. This feature provides a layer of safety and assistance for drivers using MyKey.
Can the Lane-Keeping System be disabled in the Mach-E?

The setting will be stored until manually changed unless a MyKey is detected. If the system detects a MyKey, it defaults to “On” and the mode sets to “Alert.”, allowing drivers to control the activation of the Lane-Keeping System based on their preferences.
