This feature helps drivers recognize when their attention to the road is becoming diminished, enhancing their awareness.
The CR-V was the first Honda to come with a Driver Attention Monitor.
This feature uses an angle sensor to measure the degree of steering-wheel corrections by the driver to maintain a proper lane position.
If it senses too much correction activity, it will notify the driver to take a break.
If normal attention levels are detected, the monitor will display three or four bars in the driver-selectable Driver Attention Monitor screen in the Driver Information Interface.
If the system detects an inadequate level of attention, the system will override any of the other selected screens, and display either one or two bars and a message advising the driver to take a break.
If the detected level of attention worsens, the system will display a heightened visual warning as well as an audio alert, and will vibrate the steering wheel to further warn the driver to take action.
The Driver Attention Monitor is always on in the background; the warnings can be customized via the Settings menu available from the Display Audio home screen:
Touch SETTINGS, then VEHICLE.
Select DRIVER ASSIST SYSTEM SETUP, and then touch DRIVER ATTENTION MONITOR.
Choose either TACTILE AND AUDIBLE ALERT; TACTILE ALERT; or OFF to disable those alerts entirely.
