Visual perception is the most important input for driving decisions. In this study a novel attention model presented for attending salient features in visual scene, that can be used for autonomous driving or advanced driver assistance systems. Proposed attention model constructs a holistic approach for driving task. The output of the model can be used as input to driving decision systems. Proposed model is a deep neural network model that inputs extracted features to an RNN model with attention mechanism. Proposed model trained and evaluated on state of the art driving attention datasets BDD-A, DR(eye)VE and general saliency dataset CAT2000.
