Mercedes is looking for ways to help prevent the massive number of fatigue related auto accidents across the US each year. It seems the method they have decided to use to help alert drivers when fatigue could be an issue is called Attention Assist.
The automaker will integrate the new system into its E-Class vehicles. Mercedes claims that the system is an independent judge of fatigue and when it recognizes signs of fatigue, it will chime and flash an image of a coffee cup inside the speedometer.
MB says that it identified 70 parameters that measure fatigue with key parameters being steering input. The company is mum on exactly what the system looks for and how it gathers the data. I guess it looks at things like panic stops. MB says that the system will notify drivers who are distracted too.
