How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® Work?

Mercedes-Benz introduced the ATTENTION ASSIST® system to help drowsy drivers stay alert. An innovative sensor uses a unique algorithm to analyze over 70 parameters in the first few minutes of motion to understand the driver’s personal driving style. When the system detects a change in course or direction, it will suggest steering corrections and determines whether to alert the driver to pull over and rest. Here’s how it works:

  1. Using 70 parameters, the system assesses your individual driving style.
  2. As you continue on your Hackettstown journey, the system detects unusual steering motions which may indicate driver fatigue.
  3. ATTENTION ASSIST® takes into consideration external factors like road conditions and weather, as well as your interaction with vehicle controls.
  4. After assessing all these factors, the system will determine whether you are experiencing drowsiness or driver fatigue and use an audio alert to suggest you stop the vehicle.
