Wide awake when the driver becomes drowsy.

ATTENTION ASSIST is able to recognise signs of driver fatigue or loss of attention, and prompts the driver to take a break.

ATTENTION ASSIST is able to recognise signs of driver fatigue or loss of attention, and prompts the driver to take a break.

To do this, the system continuously monitors driver behaviour and steering movements, and gives the driver a visual and audible warning of impending microsleep. This can increase driving safety, particularly on long journeys and when driving at night.

ATTENTION ASSIST operates at speeds between 60 and 200 km/h and can be configured with regard to sensitivity or switched off in the "Assistance" menu using the instrument cluster display.
