It uses various sensors to monitor the driver's behavior, including slight weaving of the vehicle that results in “patterns of minor steering corrections,” Mercedes said, which studies have shown to be a key indicator of driver inattention.

When we test drove a 2010 E550 two weeks ago, it displayed the coffee cup icon on my test drive. I'm not sure the system works that well since I wasn't drowsy at all.
