How Does the ATTENTION ASSIST® in a Mercedes-Benz Work?

The ATTENTION ASSIST® system, an industry-first from Mercedes-Benz, has an innovative sensor and precise algorithm that lets drivers know when they’re getting too drowsy to be on the roads. Below is a look at how it works:

  1. In the first few minutes of a drive, the system uses more than 70 parameters to evaluate your driving style.
  2. As you continue on your journey, the system detects specific steering corrections which are indicative of the beginning signs of driver fatigue.
  3. ATTENTION ASSIST® then considers and accounts for several external factors, including road conditions and crosswinds, as well as how you’re interacting with buttons, switches, and controls in the vehicle.
  4. If the system assesses all these factors and decides that you are experiencing drowsiness or driver fatigue, it will sound an alert and suggest that you stop for a break.
