I understand from Which magazine that the new "E" class monitors and checks the drivers actions and reactions to the controls, and if it determines that the driver is acting drowsy a buzzer sounds and a coffee cup symbol lights on the dash. Presumably if you do not react to this warning in suitable time there is a big spike under the seat cushion that gets deployed.

All this talk of there being a spike is ridiculous. What actually happens is if you ignore the coffee cup it starts pulling to the left and making the drive just that bit more attention seeking.

MB have been doing this for years.

Well MB should use the system as on the Lexus where it follows the white line in the road, with that you can just sleep peacefully
