Mercedes-Benz E-Class ensures safety with its Attention Assist System


You can always expect to be pampered by Mercedes-Benz. Every car from this automaker boasts of unique gadgets and devices that promise optimum comfort and easy maneuverability. Their latest offering, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will now make sure that you don’t fall asleep while driving. The E-Class is fitted with the Attention Assist, which monitors the car’s driver, using 70 parameters to determine if he or she is dozing off. And if the car detects a drowsy driver, it immediately sounds a warning tone and lights up a coffee icon on the speedometer display. The system’s judgment is based mainly from monitoring the steering-wheel input, as a tired driver will drift then make sharp corrections. Definitely useful, the Attention Assist will certainly help avoid accidents and ensure a safe journey. I personally feel more cars should come equipped with such systems.
