What Is Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST®?

Car Keys

ATTENTION ASSIST® from Mercedes-Benz is a smart safety system that helps you to avoid driving when you are no longer alert. It works by learning your normal driving habits and noticing changes that may be signs of inattention. For example, when ATTENTION ASSIST® says “take a break,” this Mercedes-Benz technology is telling you to stop for a cup of coffee!

How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® Work?

Exhaustion can creep up gradually, so it’s no wonder many drivers find themselves suddenly yawning while driving in South Riding. When you receive a warning from ATTENTION ASSIST® to take a break, your Mercedes-Benz is telling you that you may be putting yourself, your passengers, and other drivers at risk. But how exactly does ATTENTION ASSIST® make this assessment? Here’s how it works:

  • The moment you start your vehicle, ATTENTION ASSIST® evaluates more than 70 parameters and sets a baseline.
  • As you drive, ATTENTION ASSIST® watches for signs of driver fatigue like slowed reaction times and specific steering corrections. Data from other systems monitoring road surfaces, weather conditions, and Centerville traffic is factored in for a more complete account of your driving.
  • If ATTENTION ASSIST® determines that you’re becoming distracted or tired, it will send an auditory alert and flash a coffee cup icon on your dash until you take steps to respond.

ATTENTION ASSIST® is a powerful feature, but it’s just one part of a suite of safety features that work together in your Mercedes-Benz.
