The Mercedes-Benz EQS comes with an Attention Assist feature which is fitted as standard. This system can detect typical signs of fatigue or increasing inattention during long monotonous journeys and prompts a break with a warning message. The supplementary microsleep detection analyses a driver's eyelid movements through a camera on the driver's display that is connected with the MBUX Hyperscreen of the electric vehicle. If it detects signs of microsleep, the system issues a warning visually as well as acoustically with an additional message. The premium automaker informed microsleep detection gets active from a speed of 20 kmph.
