    Model 3 camera should be able to tell how the driver's head is positioned. If its looking forward, fine - otherwise nag.

    Yes, I understand its the torque. I can't easily figure out the turn needed to non disengage but satisfy the nag. Its a hit & miss - so I prefer just jiggling the volume wheel.

    BMW has it with their Extended Traffic Jam Assistant System.

    I wouldn't be surprised in the least if it doesn't become a requirement for L3 driving. That way the car can monitoring the driver to make sure he/she is awake, and is ready to take over if the car ever needs to request it. They don't have to be paying attention to the road, but they can't be sleeping.

    So mostly it would act as a driver drowsiness system, and there are car companies that do this without any kind of self-driving.
