What Is The Driver Alert System?

Driver alert alerts you if it determines that you are becoming drowsy or if your driving deteriorates. This also includes driver alert works, driver alert precautions, driver alert limitations, and driver alert indicators.

How Does Driver Alert Work?

Driver alert uses a front camera sensor located behind the interior mirror to calculate your alertness level based on your driving behavior in relation to the lane markings and other factors.

Driver Alert Precautions

WARNING:  You are responsible for controlling your vehicle at all times. The system is designed to be an aid and does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.
WARNING:  Take regular rest breaks if you feel tired. Do not wait for the system to warn you.
WARNING:  Certain driving styles may result in the system warning you even if you are not feeling tired.
WARNING:  In cold and severe weather conditions the system may not function. Rain, snow and spray can all limit sensor performance.
WARNING:  The system will not operate if the sensor cannot track the road lane markings.
WARNING:  If damage occurs in the immediate area surrounding the sensor, have your vehicle checked as soon as possible.
WARNING:  The system may not correctly operate if your vehicle is fitted with a suspension kit not approved by us.
WARNING:  The system may not operate properly if the sensor is blocked. Keep the windshield free from obstruction.

Note:   If something is blocking the camera or damaged the windshield, Driver Alert may not function.

System Warnings

The warning system has two stages:

  • A temporary warning is issued to advise you to take a rest. This message only appears for a short time.
  • If you do not rest and the system continues to detect that your driving deteriorates, it issues a further warning. This remains in the instrument cluster display until you cancel it.

Note:   The system does not warn you if the vehicle speed falls below approximately 65 km/h.
