Driver Alert System

The Driver Alert System recommends that the driver take a break when necessary, as inattentiveness and increased fatigue can in the worst case result in leaving the lane. The system detects deviations from normal driving behaviour and supports the driver on long journeys.

Above a speed of 65 km/h, the system continuously analyses the driver’s behaviour and draws conclusions with regard to the driver’s fitness to drive.

Various signals are evaluated such as steering behaviour, for example. If fatigue is detected, an optical and an acoustic signal urge the driver to take a break. In this way, the Driver Alert System helps the driver to make the right decision.
