Peugeot Traveller iLab Concept
The Peugeot Traveller iLab Concept has been unveiled at the show, as an example of what business shuttles should be like. It is described as a “high mobility cloud access platform” and is labelled as a VIP 3.0 shuttle. It has a four-seat arrangement around a 32-inch touchscreen tablet which can be virtually split into four individual screens for four occupants to use, or it can be used as a single device by one person.
In addition, the iLab concept features Virtual Reality headsets, a 17-speaker three-amplifier sound system, voice recognition for driver, the brand’s next-generation navigation system, and a driver inattention monitoring system. The company hasn’t revealed if at least one of the technologies previewed on the Traveller iLab will be introduced in the production-Traveller or in any other model in the foreseeable future.
