Summary Information

The technology for a DGPS-based Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) has not been deployed for automobiles on the market. The following is an estimate from Minnesota DOT (Mn/DOT) for the potential costs of a DGPS-based LDWS based on expected market penetration and an initial start cost of $8000 per unit (including the cell phone modem that transmits the location). As a result of market penetration, modeled off of mandatory and non-mandatory equipping, they predict costs will drop to $500-$1,000 at the end of 20 years.
