Fatigue d e tection
Driving tired can be deadly, but Volkswagen’s on hand to pass you a big mug of techno-coffee. Its Fatigue Detection system evaluates steering wheel movements continually, along with other signals including drifting out of lanes, when you’re travelling over 40mph. If it reckons you’re beginning to doze, an alert will flash on the dashboard and a loud “BONG!” will issue forth. In future it will also take temporary control.
