New Attention Assist safety system warns of driver fatigue

It's somewhat of a tradition: with the introduction of every new premium high-deck bus, Mercedes-Benz Travego celebrates the premiere of new safety systems in buses. This is also true in the case of the Travego Edition 1: the new optionally available Attention Assist is unique among buses and will be available from the end of the year.

The system analyses parameters such as the steering angle, speed, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, journey duration, operational signals and driver changes. From the correlation of this data, Attention Assist is able to deduce the driver’s condition. If the data suggests a driver is tired or lacking concentration, a coffee cup is shown in the display to inform the driver to take a break.

New Active Brake Assist 2 brakes if stationary obstacles are detected

A further new development for the Travego is the second generation of Active Brake Assist which is available from the end of the year. The system is now able to detect stationary obstacles. Previously, the system was only able to initiate emergency braking manoeuvres if the risk of a collision with a slower moving vehicle ahead was detected. Active Brake Assist 2, however, can also initiate emergency braking in the case of stationary obstacles, such as for example an unexpected traffic jam on the motorway.

The radar-based system scans an area between 0.25 and 200 m of the lane in which the vehicle is currently driving and then continually calculates the distance to a vehicle driving ahead, as well as the difference in speed between the two vehicles; in the case of an obstacle, it calculates the distance to the obstacle. The radar technology works reliably in almost all weather and light conditions. Active Brake Assist is active in the entire speed range from manoeuvring speeds right up to 100 km/h.

As ever, Mercedes-Benz is supporting the distribution of the life-saving system Active Brake Assist: the system will be delivered free of charge in conjunction with the optionally available adaptive cruise control.
