Peugeot pushes autonomous concepts

With a stated ambition to have a fully-autonomous production car for sale in 2020, Peugeot is using next week’s Geneva Motor Show to to conceptualise how occupants might use it, writes Brian Byrne.

The Instinct concept will feature connectivity systems through which the occupants can seamlessly access their home, work and leisure digital resources through the internet ‘cloud’.

The concept showcases Samsung’s Artik Internet of Things connectivity system.

A 300hp plug-in hybrid powertrain is part of the concept.

The PSA Group will begin testing autonomous car systems on open highways next month, having spent some time over the last two years piloting the technology under control conditions.
