The fatigue monitoring system, which combines a pair of infra-red cameras and continuous vehicle positioning data, is available on the brand’s Audi Q5-rivalling DS 7 Crossback. Because the cameras point at the driver, the car can monitor behaviour for signs of drowsiness or distraction, then warn them to take a break.

In particular, the cameras are looking for signs of weariness in the movement of the eyes, eyelids or neck. If any of these are detected, an audible alert is activated and a warning notice appears on the digital instrument cluster.

“Distracted and tired drivers are a serious safety threat on roads across the UK and it is the cause of thousands of accidents a year, with some ending in fatalities,” said the company’s head of product, Vince Clisham. “This serious issue can benefit from the latest technologies available, which is why we have made our DS Driver Attention Monitoring technology available across the range on DS 7 Crossback. Coupled with DS Night Vision and DS Active LED Vision headlights, DS Automobiles is able to lead the way on improving the safety on the roads.”
