The Peugeot Traveller i-Lab VIP 3.0 Shuttle concept is being unveiled at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show and presents a vision of the future for innovative and holistic business customer transportation.
Connectivity inside the Peugeot Traveller i-Lab provides a unique and streamlined experience. For on-board guests, travelling becomes an inspiring journey, conducive for business, with four individual seats arranged opposite one another around a giant 32″ touch-screen tablet.
The 32″ giant tablet is supported by an arch pivot to move the screen within the cabin. Sliding and reclining, it can be used in two ways to get the job done either as an individual tablet, or a tablet split into four screens for just as many users. Developed in partnership with Samsung, the Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth®, charging docks, and virtual reality headset caters for all communication needs to complete the connected journey experience.
“The Peugeot Traveller i-Lab makes everything so easy and streamlined. The on-board technology is cutting edge transforming everyday life. The arch supporting the touch tablet embodies this versatility by fostering and encouraging exchanges between passengers while on the move.” Alessandro Riga, Peugeot Traveller i-Lab Interior Designer.
For the driver, the Peugeot Traveller i-Lab’s technological equipment ensure safety with journeys made with automatic road sign recognition and driver inattention monitoring devices.
The Peugeot Traveller i-Lab represents the brand’s vision of the future for a VIP shuttle. The first step towards this future has been taken with the launch of the new generation of connected 3D navigation on the Peugeot Traveller i-Lab. The new generation of Peugeot connected 3D navigation informs the driver in real time and in a contextualised way to optimise journeys according to traffic conditions and the passenger’s agenda.
The Peugeot Traveller i-Lab concept study is an extremely high mobility cloud access platform, providing up-to-date connectivity for passengers with the help of partner Samsung. The shuttle pairs all devices to connected services to completely transform the everyday operation of those within.
“A trailblazer in emergency call systems, Peugeot is developing new connected services. Connected navigation is available on the PEUGEOT Traveller from launch and is the first step towards an enhanced future.” Brigitte Courtehoux, Connected Vehicles and Services Director.
Voice recognition provides additional security by allowing the driver to control navigation, telephone and media functions without taking their eyes off the road. The 7″ touch screen in the cabin area act as an interface with the on-board park-assist system, VisioPark 1.
The Peugeot Traveller i-Lab monitors the driver’s vigilance to prevent collisions. The driver inattention monitoring system alerts them after two hours of continuous driving, then every hour if they haven’t stopped. This equipment also measures the vehicle’s dynamic attitude via the camera and steering wheel angle sensor. A visual and audible alert encourages the driver to pay better attention to their standards of driving if it can detect the driver is getting tired or losing concentration.
“With the Peugeot Traveller i-Lab, the brand confirms its goal of applying its dynamic strategy to all segments. The Peugeot Traveller i-Lab has a high level of safety, service and hyper-connectivity to meet the increasing requirements of business customers that want a streamlined and high-quality experience.” Jérôme Micheron, Peugeot Strategy Director.
