1. A control system for a vehicle, said control system comprising:

  • a forward viewing camera disposed at an interior-cabin side of a windshield of a vehicle equipped with said control system and having a field of view through the windshield exterior and forward of the equipped vehicle;

    said camera comprising at least 1 million photosensor elements arranged in a two-dimensional photosensor array having rows and columns;

    a control comprising an image processor operable to process image data captured by said photosensor array of said camera to determine lane boundaries of a lane of travel of the equipped vehicle;

    wherein said image processor is operable to process image data captured by said photosensor array of said camera to determine road curvature of a curved section of a road being traveled by the equipped vehicle;

    wherein said control, responsive at least in part to processing by said image processor of captured image data, determines an end of the curved section where the road straightens; and

    wherein said control, responsive to a determination that the equipped vehicle is at the end of the curved section where the road straightens, determines a wheel angle to adjust a wheel of the equipped vehicle to such that the equipped vehicle travels parallel to a tangent of the road after the equipped vehicle has traversed the curved section and is at a straight section of the road.
