Traffic Jam Assist
The traffic jam assist system uses a camera mounted to the upper portion of the windshield to detect and monitor left and right white (or yellow) traffic lane lines. Based on inputs from the camera, the system can apply steering torque to keep your vehicle in the center of the detected lane.
How Traffic Jam Assist works
When you are in heavy traffic and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) is active, the traffic jam assist system, upon detecting the traffic lane lines, will apply steering torque to help keep your vehicle in the center of the lane.
When you use the turn signal to indicate a lane change, Traffic Jam Assist is temporarily deactivated. It is reactivated once the vehicle is traveling in the center of the lane and the system has detected the traffic lane lines.
When the driver takes full control of the steering, the steering assist function is temporarily canceled.
The torque applied to the steering may not be noticeable when the driver has full control of the steering, or when the surface of the road is rough or uneven.
Important Safety Reminders
Traffic Jam Assist is for your convenience only. It is not an autonomous driving system and always requires driver attention and control. The system does not work if you take your hands off the steering wheel or fail to steer the vehicle. Traffic Jam Assist is convenient when it is used on expressways or freeways. You can read about handling information for the camera equipped with this system. Front Wide-View Camera P. 598
The Traffic Jam Assist only alerts you when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. The Traffic Jam Assist may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed, and lane marker condition. It is always your responsibility to safely operate the vehicle and avoid collisions.
Traffic Jam Assist may not work properly under certain conditions:
Traffic Jam Assist Conditions and Limitations P. 580
Lane Departure Warning Function
When the vehicle enters the warning area, Traffic Jam Assist alerts you with slight steering wheel vibration or an audible alert as well as a warning display.
Traffic Jam Assist Activation
Traffic Jam Assist is activated when all of the following conditions exist:
- LKAS is activated.
- The lane in which you are driving has detectable lane markers on both sides, and your vehicle is in the center of the lane.
- The vehicle is traveling between about 0 and 45mph (0 and 72km/h).
- You are driving on a straight or slightly curved road.
- The driver is gripping the steering wheel.
- The shift position is in (D, (S* or (L*.
Do not use Traffic Jam Assist in any of the following situations:
- You are traveling on a road with sharp curves.
- The system may not allow your vehicle to respond in a manner best suited for the road conditions.
- You are entering a toll booth, interchange, service area, or parking area.
- You are driving in adverse weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.).
- The surface of the road is slippery; for example, it is icy or covered with snow.
- The tires may slip, causing you to lose control of the vehicle.
Refer to the following page for proper handling of the LKAS:
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) P. 563
Refer to the following page for steering buttons and displays:
Operation Switches for the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow*/Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)*/Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)/Traffic Jam Assist* P. 497
How Traffic Jam Assist Works
Keep your vehicle near the center of the lane while driving.
- The LKAS indicator changes from white to green, and white lines change to green once the system starts operating after detecting the left and right lane markings.
If your vehicle veers too far to the right or the left of the white (or yellow) traffic lane lines while Traffic Jam Assist is active, deactivate Traffic Jam Assist and have your vehicle inspected by an authorized Honda dealer. In some cases the system cannot properly detect the traffic lane lines and, as a result, will not provide steering assistance. Traffic Jam Assist Conditions and Limitations P. 580
If the driver takes their hands off the steering wheel or does not adequately maintain control of steering, the warning below will appear.
If the driver does not grip the steering wheel after the warning above has repeatedly appeared, a warning buzzer will sound and Traffic Jam Assist will be canceled.
