Toyota Camry: LTA (Lane Tracing Assist)

Summary of functions

While driving on a road with clear white (yellow) lane lines, the LTA system warns the driver if the vehicle may deviate from the current lane or course*, and also can slightly operate the steering wheel to help avoid deviation from the lane or course*. Also, while the dynamic radar cruise control with full-speed range or dynamic radar cruise control is operating, this system will operate the steering wheel to maintain the vehicle's lane position.

The LTA system recognizes white (yellow) lane lines or a course* using the front camera. Additionally, it detects preceding vehicles using the front camera and radar.

Using the driving support systems

*: Boundary between asphalt and the side of the road, such as grass, soil, or a curb

WARNING

■Before using LTA system

  • Do not rely solely upon the LTA system. The LTA system does not automatically drive the vehicle or reduce the amount of attention that must be paid to the area in front of the vehicle. The driver must always assume full responsibility for driving safely by paying careful attention to the surrounding conditions and operating the steering wheel to correct the path of the vehicle. Also, the driver must take adequate breaks when fatigued, such as from driving for a long period of time.
  • Failure to perform appropriate driving operations and pay careful attention may lead to an accident, resulting in death or serious injury.

■Situations unsuitable for LTA system

In the following situations, use the LTA switch to turn the system off. Failure to do so may lead to an accident, resulting in death or serious injury.

  • Vehicle is driven on a road surface which is slippery due to rainy weather, fallen snow, freezing, etc.
  • Vehicle is driven on a snow-covered road.
  • White (yellow) lines are difficult to see due to rain, snow, fog, dust, etc.
