How Does My Mercedes-Benz Detect Drowsiness with ATTENTION ASSIST®?
An industry-first by Mercedes-Benz, ATTENTION ASSIST® uses a sensor and detailed algorithm to detect fatigued driving behavior. See how it works below:
ATTENTION ASSIST® analyzes driving behavior in the first few minutes of your ride and assesses your personal driving techniques using over 70 parameters.
While you are driving in Pahrump or Summerlin, ATTENTION ASSIST® identifies certain steering corrections that indicate drowsiness and fatigue. ATTENTION ASSIST® also considers external factors, including road conditions, crosswinds, and your interaction with vehicle controls.
After considering these external factors, ATTENTION ASSIST® will send you an alert that suggests you take a break from driving if it determines that your driving behavior is due to fatigue.
What is the Benefit of Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST®?
With ATTENTION ASSIST® in your Mercedes-Benz, you can have more confidence in the safety of yourself, your passengers, and other drivers on the road. There’s always a new adventure to be had in Las Vegas, but when you’ve been driving all day, it’s possible for fatigue to set in. Driver fatigue causes your attention level to fall, increasing the risk of a serious accident. If Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® detects even a slight chance of drowsiness, you’ll see the coffee cup dashboard symbol light up and understand that it’s time to get off the road and rest for a while.
