Motor Image Enterprises (MIE)
, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in Singapore, is proud to introduce a Driver Monitoring System (DMS) in its most popular model, the Subaru Forester, to the Singapore market. Unique to Subaru, the DMS is the headline feature of the 2021 Forester, making Subaru's signature SUV even safer and more convenient. 

The driver's seat in the latest Forester provides eight-way power adjustment and a two-memory function. However, DMS upgrades the functionality to the next level by recognising up to five different registered drivers and recalling their preferred cockpit settings. Using an infrared camera, DMS scans the driver's face when he gets behind the wheel. This is similar to how facial recognition works on tablets and smartphones.

The DMS' infrared camera is integrated neatly with the hood of the Multi-Function Display atop the Forester's dashboard
Once the driver has been identified by the DMS scanner as a driver registered in the system, it will automatically adjust the following based on the driver's last saved preferences. Starting with the driver's seat position, the door mirror positions, the climate control settings, the Multi-Function Display's content and the combination meter displays content.

DMS can register up to five driver profiles, complete with a choice of eight icons, which include a paw print, a butterfly, and a pair of checkered flags. In addition, the DMS gives the Forester an even higher level of preventive safety and supplements the model's EyeSight Driver Assist Technology to make every drive as safe as can be.

DMS monitors the driver's eyes while they are driving the Forester whilst the vehicle is in motion and helps ensure that the driver is focused on the road ahead. If DMS detects that the driver is distracted, drowsy or sleepy, which could cause a road accident, the system will alert the driver with a buzzer and a visual alert.

Slight distraction, drowsiness or sleepiness will prompt DMS to flash 'Keep Eyes on Road' in the multi-info display between the instrument meters. Serious drowsiness or sleepiness will prompt DMS to flash 'Stay Alert!'. As an innovation in motoring safety and convenience, Subaru's DMS has won accolades in Europe, Australia and the United States.
