How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® Work?

An industry first from Mercedes-Benz, the ATTENTION ASSIST® uses an innovative sensor and precise algorithm to assess if a driver is getting too drowsy to be on the roads. Here’s how it works:

  1. Within the first few minutes spent on Chino roads, the system uses over 70 parameters to assess your individual driving style.
  2. As you continue on your journey to Corona, the system looks for specific steering corrections which can indicate the early onset of driver fatigue.
  3. ATTENTION ASSIST® then accounts for external factors, such as crosswinds and road conditions, and considers how you’re handling the controls, buttons, and switches in the vehicle.
  4. If the ATTENTION ASSIST® system concludes that you’re experiencing drowsiness or driver fatigue, it will sound an alert and suggest stopping for a break.
