Have you been wondering, “What does the coffee cup mean on my Mercedes-Benz dashboard?” This symbol indicates that Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® is turned on. So, what is ATTENTION ASSIST®? Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® is a Mercedes-Benz car safety feature that is standard on a wide selection of new Mercedes-Benz vehicles, including the CLA and E-Class. This intelligent safety feature monitors driving behavior and alerts Bullhead City drivers when they show signs of fatigued driving.
How Does My Mercedes-Benz Detect Drowsiness?
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 in Kingman, 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.
What is the Benefit of Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST®?
With ATTENTION ASSIST® in your Mercedes-Benz, you can have more confidence in the safety of yourself, your passengers, and other drivers on the road in Henderson. From desert hikes to luxury dining with friends, there’s plenty to do in the greater Henderson area, but when you’ve been behind the wheel for a while, it’s possible for fatigue to set in. Driver fatigue causes your attention level to fall, increasing the risk of a serious accident. If Mercedes-Benz ATTENTION ASSIST® detects even a slight chance of drowsiness, you’ll see the coffee cup dashboard symbol light up and understand that it’s time to get off the road and rest for a while.
