How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® Work? 

The Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® system is a unique technology from Mercedes-Ben that has an innovative sensor and precise algorithm that notices if Southfield drivers are getting too tired. This is how it works:

  1. In the first few minutes of any drive around Birmingham, 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 that indicate the beginning signs of driver fatigue.
  3. ATTENTION ASSIST® then considers and accounts for several external factors, such as road conditions and crosswinds, and how you use the controls, buttons, and switches in the car.
  4. The ATTENTION ASSIST® driver drowsiness monitor is an impressive system that assesses all these factors and concludes that if the ATTENTION ASSIST® drowsiness is detected, or if you have driver fatigue, it will sound an alert and suggest that you stop for a break.
