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, design and comfort for the driver and passengers alike are at the heart of the PEUGEOT Traveller‘s design philosophy, providing new, distinctive features that set the VIP shuttle apart from the brand’s SUV and car model range.
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 seamlessly 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 guarantees the satisfaction of its passengers with journeys made in complete safety 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. Through connectivity, uses are multiplied and transform everyday life.
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 is a VIP shuttle study that promotes a hyper-connected journey. As its name suggests, its standard features and high levels of safety deliver stress-free journeys while increasing the passenger’s opportunity to conduct business efficiencies while on the move.
From the very first glance, the PEUGEOT Traveller i-Lab asserts its VIP shuttle personality, while indicating it belongs to the PEUGEOT passenger car range. Displayed in its dark copper colour, the expressive front end has the brand’s new stylish identity with an elevated new vertical grille that integrates the iconic lion emblem at its centre.
The vehicle’s design and posture evokes the open spaces combined with luxury comfort. The exterior dimensions make it perfectly suitable for urban environments and its sub 2-metre height allows easy access to underground and city car parks. The hands-free sliding side doors are activated by a simple swipe gesture of the foot underneath the vehicle, allowing the doors to unlock and open automatically for complete ease of access.
The environment provided on board the PEUGEOT Traveller i-Lab is conducive to doing business. Isolated from the outside by dark tinted windows, passengers are provided with a comfortable area with individual seats upholstered in Alcantara® and patinated black leather trim, and leather-trimmed inner door panels. The elegantly designed roof console provides a dim light emitted by LEDs and the air supply is delicately balanced courtesy of the climate control system.
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.
