How about coffee when you are about to fall asleep when driving? This is just one of the many cutting edge safety features on the new E-class to be delivered by Mercedes Benz. Other safety features incorporated on the model include night vision, blind spot connection and adaptive cruise control. All of these features are seen as well on the Mercedes Benz S550 but what makes the new Mercedes E-Class unique is the presence of the Attention Assist- ensures that you will not fall asleep on the road! This safety feature uses 70 parameters to check if the driver is sleeping. And once it detects that the driver is starting to fall asleep, there will be a warning tone and a coffee cup icon will light up on the dashboard. Among the parameters used in this new Mercedes safety feature are the steering-wheel input and the driver’s ability to make sharp corrections.
