Yes it normally comes on when I have an early start for a breakfast meet and I am halfway through the journey. Very annoying when you cannot remember how to switch it off.

@racall The message in the multifunctional display is: "Attention Assist: Drowsiness Detected" with a coffee cup symbol. There is also a warning bleep.

I think it comes on after about 2 hours of driving or if it it detects "drowsy" driving. I have mine disabled.

It becomes active after 20 mins of driving. See pdf copy of the relevant notes from the US version of SLK Manual ( I cannot scan the UK Manual pages) which for all intents and purposes is the same as the UK's

I saw that a couple of times on sunday. Easy enough to get rid of but I take exception to the coffee cup - I'm allergic to coffee. I think there should be an option to change the image to something else.

And anyway. How does it deduce 'drowsy driving'? I was simply pootling down the M6 with the cruise control set to 75. Not in any particular hurry and it came on after about 3 hours.

I am also curious how attention assist detects drowsiness. The most informative information I found so far was that it used around 70 parameters, to decide (very helpful).

I guess they intentionally keep it a secret.

IIRC, the Russian version of the SLK has a similar type of warning: "Please stop and take a shower"
My proficiency in Russian is poor, so I could be misinterpreting the Attention Assist message.

My preferred long distance caffeine drink is a tin of Red Bull.....

As someone who use to regularly drive 1000 miles a week (In a s#!ty 65bhp diesel car..) as a computer engineer, I'd say it's quite easy for a car to detect a tired driver: The biggest giveaway is when on the motorway & Your struggling to perfectly track the white lines of Your lane and You keep making big adjustments to stay in lane. Now days, talking on a mobile phone creates the same phenomena....!!

Does it say 'coffee' then?
I'm sure mine is a picture of a steaming cup.
