Peugeot Instinct HMI Details

The driver’s environment boasts a sleek kinematic system that comes into play when switching between Drive and Autonomous modes. The compact steering wheel and the panel housing the toggle switches fold into the dashboard. At the same time, the accelerator pedal pulls back into the pedal unit.

Regardless of the mode activated, the driver retains control over the vehicle. While this is obvious in Drive mode, this feature of PEUGEOT’s self-driving car is more surprising in Autonomous mode. The i-Device sits next to the 9.7-inch screen on the central console and can be used to command the car at any time. Simply tap to overtake the car in front or to switch from Soft to Sharp mode.

In Drive mode, the holographic cluster displays the operating data: vehicle speed, the split between the two energies used in the PHEV power chain, battery level, and so on. The digital rear-view function notifies the driver of the presence of a vehicle in the blind spot.

In Autonomous mode, these features include other information, which gains in importance as time is the only notion that really counts. All passengers are able to find out the time, the distance covered so far and the remaining journey time.

The car has 4 driving modes:

  • Drive Boost is designed for a dynamic drive.
  • Drive Relax uses the ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance Systems) to assist the driver. This includes features such as automatic main beam switching or the active cruise control.
  • Autonomous Soft mode is for comfort. The journeys may be a little longer, giving you time to watch a film, read or simply rest.
  • Autonomous Sharp optimises journey times with precise, efficient road handling.
