How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST Work?

With ATTENTION ASSIST, Mercedes-Benz drivers can navigate Niagara-on-the-Lake more safely. It’s all made possible by an innovative sensor and a precise algorithm that allows the system to alert drowsy drivers who appear to be experiencing too much fatigue to be on the road.

Here’s how the technology works:

  1. Within the first few minutes of your Pelham drive, the system utilizes over 70 parameters to assess the intricacies of your driving habits.
  2. As your journey presses on, the system picks up on specific steering corrections that are known to indicate the initial signs of driver fatigue.
  3. ATTENTION ASSIST then considers and accounts for numerous external factors, including road conditions and crosswinds, as well as how the driver is interacting with vehicle controls, buttons, and switches.
  4. If, after assessing these factors, the ATTENTION ASSIST system concludes that you are, in fact, experiencing driver fatigue and drowsiness, an alert will sound and suggest that it’s time to take a break from the road.
