How the ATTENTION ASSIST® “Take a Break” Mercedes-Benz Notification Works

With ATTENTION ASSIST®, Mercedes-Benz continues to be a leader in automotive technological innovation. Using data-driven metrics, the machine learns about your particular driving style so that it can tell when something is off. ATTENTION ASSIST® Mercedes-Benz vehicles are consequently paragons of safety technology. Here’s how it works:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST® Assessment: Using up to 70 parameters, the system of sensors on Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® vehicles quickly assess your driving habits within the first few minutes after you start the engine. 
  • ATTENTION ASSIST® Detection: Drowsy driving is a dangerous but often unnoticed condition. But the experts have figured out the particular ways it affects your steering, so ATTENTION ASSIST® Mercedes-Benz vehicles detect this. The system also accounts for changes in road conditions that may also affect your steering.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST® “Take a Break” Mercedes-Benz Alert: If the system finds that you may be experiencing fatigue, it’ll suggest that you “take a break” so that you can recuperate and drive safely.
