This is the era of smart and intelligent machines, capable of delivering detailed data that corresponds to human needs. But what if I told you the Peugeot Instinct Concept can dictate your mood and adjust the driving style according to that?
Before we dive into how the technology works, let’s talk about the powertrain that powers this beauty. Peugeot says they’ve equipped the Instinct concept with a plug-in hybrid powertrain that delivers 300-PS or 295-HP.
When displayed on the stand, the Peugeot Instinct Concept was showcased to be the so-called ‘Internet of Things’ platform. To further explain this, you would need to watch the video above – the car integrates the Samsung Artik Cloud system and syncs it with the user’s devices in order to obtain data about the drivers lifestyle.
This allows the car to seamlessly preconfigure its settings according to the user’s activity outside the car – this means it can alter driving style mood, audio volume, ambient lighting, seat and interface settings based on how it thinks the driver might want them.
Also capable of altering the behaviour depending on what the driver may want, the Peugeot Instinct Concept can fetch data from the driver’s smart devices (watch, smartphone) and dictate if he had any exercise or went to the gym – thus adjusting for a comfortable and smooth ride back home. The car can also sync with the driver’s diary and install meeting appointments on the navigation system to ensure the driver is ready and on time.
Not to mention the car’s ability to go fully autonomous if the driver deems necessary. This is achieved via the i-Device placed next to the 9.7 inch center console display which replaces a traditional steering wheel and pedal once activated. The seats also aid to optimize autonomous mode by fully reclining and offering optimum space.
Additionally, the Peugeot Instinct Concept features a very unique headlight design that integrates cameras within capable of scanning the road ahead and communicating with the onboard driving assistance systems.
