The fatigue detection warning is a function which is useful on monotonous roads (motorways, high-speed roads etc.).

It analyses driver behaviour and takes account of events to inform you of any risk of fatigue such as:

- steering wheel movement;

- driver actions on other devices (indicators, windscreen washer etc.);

- time spent driving without stopping;

-...

This function is an additional driving aid in case of risk of fatigue. This function does not take the place of the driver.

Under no circumstances should this function replace the driver’s care or responsibility whilst driving.
