DMS in the New 2019 Subaru Forester 2.5i-S

What do reviewers say about the Driver Monitoring System in the 2019 Subaru Forester? We found out. 

At drivermonitoring.com we know that more and more car manufacturers are adapting driver monitoring systems into their new car models. It began with the premium car manufacturers, then as a part of the premium package in mass-market cars. And it’s looking like driver monitoring technology has come to the mass-market to stay. Could this be a result of an increased focus by institutions such as EU, UN, and EuroNCAP? 

The next car model out to include a driver monitoring system is 2019 Subaru Forester 2.5i-S. In a review made by caradvice.com.au, the new safety features are described like this: 

”‘Driver Monitoring System’ watches whoever is behind the wheel, and will warn them against drowsiness and distraction. It pinged me quite a few times looking around in slow-moving traffic. What’s also cool is the Forester will recognise your face and set your seats, mirrors and climate control to how you last had it.”

It’s clear that the new car model has a lot of other in-car AI features to be proud of as well. caradvice.com.au concludes: 

”There is Subaru’s autonomous braking (called EyeSight), and reverse automatic braking as well. Along with lots of sensors that monitor brake lights, lane departure, blind spot and rear cross traffic, the Forester also keeps an eye on the driver.”
