March 11th, 2019 by


ATTENTION ASSIST® gives Costa Mesa drivers added peace of mind during long trips, as well as during their daily commutes to work in Irvine. Learn more about how Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® safety technology works, along with which new models offer it, from the team at Fletcher Jones Motorcars.

How Does Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® Work?

An industry-first by Mercedes-Benz, ATTENTION ASSIST® uses a sensor and detailed algorithm to detect fatigued driving behavior. See how it works below:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST® analyzes driving behavior in the first few minutes of your ride and assesses your personal driving techniques using over 70 parameters.
  • While you are driving, ATTENTION ASSIST® identifies certain steering corrections that indicate drowsiness and fatigue. ATTENTION ASSIST® also considers external factors, including road conditions, crosswinds, and your interaction with vehicle controls.
  • After considering these external factors, ATTENTION ASSIST® will send you an alert that suggests you take a break from driving if it determines that your driving behavior is due to fatigue.
