Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) systems are part of the Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS), which are equipped in the latest passenger vehicles sold in the Southeast Asia (SEA) countries. Both technologies are very beneficial to gain improved safety performance for vehicle occupants and benefiting other road users such as pedestrians and cyclists by alerting the driver and making automatic trajectory correction when the vehicle is deviating away from the correct path while in motion. Nevertheless, there is yet any test protocol established by the New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) to evaluate both technologies tailored to the SEA’s environmental conditions. Hence, this is a preliminary investigation of the new test protocol developed for LDW and LKA based on SEA’s environmental conditions. The proposed protocol incorporated the effect of both dry and wet conditions, which is unique to simulate the main weather elements in the region. On-road tests using actual passenger vehicles were conducted using a rain simulator to simulate the rainy weather. The preliminary tests were performed on straight road conditions. Results show that the proposed protocol was able to assess the effectiveness of LDW and LKA in both dry and wet conditions. Further actions shall be carried out in the later stage of this project to validate the proposed protocol using other vehicle models sold in SEA that equipped with similar technologies.
