Mercedes-Benza celebrate tenth anniversary of Attention Assist
Whether with milk and sugar, black, whether brewed or espresso, from a large pot or in a tiny cup: coffee has fans all over the world. And the Germans love it too. On average, Germans drink around 164 litres of coffee each per year.
As a homage to these aromatic beans, the International Coffee Organisation has proclaimed yesterday to be International Coffee Day.
Mercedes-Benz also uses the wake-up effect of coffee: ten years ago, Mercedes-Benz presented the drowsiness warning system Attention Assist as a world first. This assistance system can recognise typical signs of fatigue and prompt drowsy drivers to take a break.
The intuitively recognisable symbol for this is a stylised coffee cup in the instrument cluster.
Il simbolo intuitivamente riconoscibile per questo è una tazza di caffè stilizzata nel quadro strumenti.
Attention Assist is now standard equipment in all Mercedes-Benz car model series. More than 14 million vehicles featuring it have already been delivered to customers.
