How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® Work?

An industry-first technology from Mercedes-Benz, the ATTENTION ASSIST® system keeps drivers protected from the dangers of driving drowsy. Pairing a precise algorithm with an innovative sensor, ATTENTION ASSIST® can tell if drivers are getting too drowsy to be on Union City roads. Here’s a quick overview of how the system works:

  1. Once you begin driving, the system assesses your normal driving style across over 70 parameters.
  2. The system will then learn those behaviors and look for specific steering corrections which suggest you may be getting drowsy.
  3. Going beyond your individual habits, the ATTENTION ASSIST® feature will also account for multiple external factors, including road conditions and crosswinds. Along with those factors, it will also consider how you’re interacting with controls, buttons, and switches in the vehicle.
  4. If, after assessing all the information, ATTENTION ASSIST® concludes that you’re experiencing drowsiness or driver fatigue, it will deliver a visual and audio alert to signify it’s time for you to take a break.
