Hyundai Elantra: Driver Attention Warning (DAW) / System operation

Basic function

System display and warning

The basic function of Driver Attention Warning is to inform the driver of their ‘Attention Level’ and to warn the driver to ‘Consider taking a break’.

Attention level

• The driver can monitor his/her driving conditions on the cluster.

-- When the ‘Inattentive Driving Warning’ is deselected from the Settings menu, ‘System Off’ is displayed.
-- The function will operate when vehicle speed is between 0~110 mph (0~180 km/h).
-- When vehicle speed is not within the operating speed, the message ‘Standby’ will be displayed.

  • The driver’s attention level is displayed on the scale of 1 to 5. The lower the level is, the more inattentive the driver is.
  • The level decreases when the driver does not take a break for a certain period of time.

Taking a break

  • The ‘Consider taking a break’ message will appear on the cluster and an audible warning will sound to suggest that the driver take a break, when the driver’s attention level is below 1.
  • Driver Attention Warning will not suggest a break when the total driving time is shorter than 10 minutes or 10 minutes has not passed after the last break was suggested.


For your safety, change the Settings after parking the vehicle at a safe location.


  • Driver Attention Warning may suggest a break depending on the driver’s driving pattern or habits, even if the driver doesn’t feel fatigued.
  • Driver Attention Warning is a supplemental system and may not be able to determine whether the driver is inattentive.
  • The driver who feels fatigued should take a break at a safe location, even though there is no break suggestion by Driver Attention Warning.


  • For more details on setting the functions in the infotainment system, refer to “Vehicle Settings” section in chapter 4.
  • Driver Attention Warning will reset the last break time to 00:00 in the following situations:
    -- The engine is turned off
    -- The driver unfastens the seat belt and opens the driver’s door
    -- The vehicle is stopped for more than 10 minutes
  • When the driver resets Driver Attention Warning, the last break time is set to 00:00 and the driver’s attention level is set to High.

Leading Vehicle Departure Alert function

When the front vehicle departs from a stop, Leading Vehicle Departure Alert will inform the driver by displaying the ‘Leading vehicle is driving away’ message on the cluster and an audible warning will sound.


  • If any other system’s warning message is displayed or audible warning is generated, Leading Vehicle Departure Alert's warning message may not be displayed and audible warning may not be generated.
  • The driver should hold the responsibility to safely drive and control the vehicle.


  • Leading Vehicle Departure Alert is a supplemental function and may not alert the driver whenever the front vehicle departs from a stop.
  • Always check the front of the vehicle and road conditions before departure.
