How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® Work?

The ATTENTION ASSIST® system is an industry-first from Mercedes-Benz. With an innovative sensor and precise algorithm, it can tell if drivers are getting too drowsy to be on the roads. Here’s how it works:

  1. In the first few minutes of a drive, the system uses over 70 parameters to assess your individual 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 are interacting with controls, buttons, and switches in the vehicle.
  4. If the system assesses all these factors and concludes that you are experiencing drowsiness or driver fatigue, it will sound an alert and suggest stopping for a break.
