Hyundai Tucson: Driver Attention Warning (DAW) / Driver Attention Warning Operation

Basic function

The Driver Attention Warning informs you of the "Attention Level" and when to "Consider taking a break".

Attention level

The driver’s attention level appears on a scale of 1 to 5. The lower the level, the sooner you must take a break.

  • Driver Attention Warning operates when your vehicle speed is 0-120 mph (0-200 km/h).


  • When the Inattentive Driving Warning is deselected from the Settings menu, "System Off" appears.
  • When vehicle speed is not within the operating speed, the message "Standby" appears.

Taking a break

  • The "Consider taking a break" message may appear on the instrument cluster and an audible warning may sound, when the attention level is below 1.
  • Driver Attention Warning does not suggest a break if the total driving time is less than 10 minutes or 10 minutes has not passed since the last break was suggested.


Only change the settings after parking your vehicle at a safe location.


  • Driver Attention Warning may suggest a break depending on your driving pattern or habit, even if you do not feel fatigued.
  • Driver Attention Warning is a supplemental function only and does not determine if you are paying attention to the driving task.
  • If you feel fatigued or want to take a break, do so as needed at a safe location.


  • The status of the Driver Attention Warning appears in Driving Assist mode on the instrument cluster. Refer to the "View Modes" section in Chapter 4.
  • Driver Attention Warning resets the last break time to 00:00 when:
    - The engine is turned off.
    - The driver's seat belt is unfastened, and the driver's door is opened.
    - The vehicle is stopped for more than 10 minutes.

Leading Vehicle Departure Alert function

Departure Alert displays the "Leading vehicle is driving away" message on the instrument cluster and an audible warning sounds.


  • When other system’s warning message appears or audible warning is heard, Leading Vehicle Departure Alert may not alert you.
  • Always check road conditions, and if necessary, take appropriate actions to drive safely. It is your responsibility to operate your vehicle in a safe manner.
