Driving Aids

Driver alert

WARNING: The driver alert system is designed to aid you. It is not intended to replace your attention and judgment. You are still responsible to drive with due care and attention.

Note: The system will store the on/off setting in the information display menu through ignition cycles.

Note: If enabled in the menu, the system will be active above 40 mph (64 km/h).

Note: The system works as long as one lane marking can be detected by the camera.

Note: If the camera is blocked or if the windshield is damaged, the system may not function.

Note: The system may not be available in poor weather or other low visibility conditions.

The system automatically monitors your driving behavior using various inputs including the front camera sensor.

If the system detects that your driving alertness is reduced below a certain threshold, the system will alert you using a chime and a message in the cluster display

Switching the System On and Off

By default, the system is enabled. You may disable or re-enable the system by selecting Setting then Driver Assist then Driver Alert in the menu. When activated, the system will monitor your alertness level based upon your driving behavior in relation to the lane markings, and other factors.

System Warnings

Note: The system will not issue warnings below approximately 40 mph (64 km/h).

The warning system is in two stages. At first the system issues a temporary warning that you need to take a rest. This message will only appear for a short time. If the system detects further reduction in driving alertness, another warning may be issued which will remain in the information display for a longer time. Press OK on the steering wheel control to clear the warning.

System Display

When active the system will run automatically in the background and only issue warning if required. You can view the status at any time using the information display. Refer to the Information Displays chapter.

The alertness level is shown by six steps in a colored bar.

The current assessment of your alertness is within a typical range.

The current assessment of your alertness indicates that you should rest as soon

The current assessment of your alertness indicates that you should rest as soon as safely possible.

The status bar will travel from left to right as the calculated alertness level decreases. As the rest icon is approached the color turns from green to yellow to red. The yellow position represents the first warning is active and the red position represents the second warning is active.

Note: If you have recently received a warning; you should consider resting, even if the current assessment is with the typical range.

Note: The alertness level will be shown in grey if the camera sensor cannot track the road lane markings or if the vehicle speed drops below approximately 40 mph (64 km/h).
