DAW (Driver Attention Warning) system

When the "Check DAW (Driver Attention Warning) system" warning message appears, the system is not working properly. In this case, we recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by a HYUNDAI authorised repairer.


  • The Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system is not a substitute for safe driving practices, but a convenience function only. It is the responsibility of the driver to always drive cautiously to prevent unexpected and sudden situations from occurring. Pay attention to the road conditions at all times.
  • The system may suggest a break according to the driver’s driving pattern or habits even if the driver doesn’t feel fatigue.
  • The driver, who feels fatigued, should take a break, even though there is no break suggestion by the Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system.


The Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system utilises the camera sensor on the front windscreen for its operation. To keep the camera sensor in the best condition, you should observe the followings:

  • NEVER install any accessories or stickers on the front windscreen, nor tint the front windscreen.
  • NEVER locate any reflective objects (i.e. white paper, mirror) over the dashboard. Any light reflection may cause a malfunction of the Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system.
  • Pay extreme caution to keep the camera sensor out of water.
  • NEVER disassemble the camera assembly, nor apply any impact on the camera assembly.
  • Do not disassemble the camera temporarily for tinted window or attaching any types of coatings and accessories.

If you disassemble a camera and assemble it again, we recommend that you take your vehicle to a HYUNDAI authorised repairer and have the system checked for calibration.


The Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system may not properly operate with limited alerting in the following situations:

  • The lane detection performance is limited. (For more information, refer to "Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system" in this chapter.)
  • The vehicle is violently driven or is abruptly turned for obstacle avoidance (e.g. construction area, other vehicles, fallen objects, bumpy road).
  • Forward drivability of the vehicle is severely undermined (possibly due to wide variation in tyre pressures, uneven tyre wear-out, toein/ toe-out alignment).
  • The vehicle drives on a curvy road.
  • The vehicle drives through a windy area.
  • The vehicle drives on a bumpy road.
  • The vehicle is controlled by the following driving assist systems:
    - Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system
    - Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA) system
    - Smart Cruise Control (SCC) system


Playing the vehicle audio system at high volume may offset the Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system warning sounds.
