Honda introduced the 'Driver Attention Monitor' on in 2017 on the CR-V, and described it in most detail at manuals/documentation of that time: https://www.hondainfocenter.com/CR-...nterior/Driver-Attention-Monitor-EX-and-aboveThis brings up a question I forgot to ask, does anyone know how the driver attention thing works in our cars? Almost through New Jersey the car kept popping up "driver attention" warnings. I don't know if Cornelius just wanted me to pull over at a rest stop and stretch my legs...
The thing I found odd was that at first I thought maybe it's a timer based thing, but it didn't happen on our way back, although we did stop at least twice more on the way back than on the way down.
Definitely more LKAS driving the way down there, and much more @ highway speed.Honda introduced the 'Driver Attention Monitor' on in 2017 on the CR-V, and described it in most detail at manuals/documentation of that time: https://www.hondainfocenter.com/CR-...nterior/Driver-Attention-Monitor-EX-and-above
The alert level can be adjusted for a drive via the DII or Infotainment menu (Off / Tactile only / Tactile & Audible), but the visual alert is always on. It resumes its default "ALL ON" condition once the car is re-started OR if the driver unfastens seat belt and opens the door while car is stopped.
- Uses angle sensor to measure degree of steering wheel corrections to maintain lane position.
- Too much correction activity can trigger the 'inattention' alert.
It does not activate when the car is traveling <25 mph, there issues with the electric power steering system, LKAS is active, the car is on choppy roads, windy weather conditions, or the driver is operating the car 'assertively' (OM p146).
I think it must also compare 'steering wheel input' patterns versus what the car thinks the right road path is (RDM? - since not active when LKAS is on?) and/or a 'normal' level of movements to the steering wheel.
Maybe there were differences between your outbound and return drive that resulted in different feedback result - like the road quality (bumpy?), lighting conditions (assuming comparison to camera lane detection), 'assertive' driving level (lane changes or acceleration), road width, or wind conditions...?
Sounds like speed was a big difference. The original CR-V design/documentation for this also mentioned that the monitor only kicked in for drives that were >30 minutes in duration, but I think Honda has 'improved' this to kick in with shorter start time since 2017.Definitely more LKAS driving the way down there, and much more @ highway speed.
On the way back got caught in several major traffic jams, and probably averaged less than 45mph total trip.
