The Chrysalide concept synchronises a range of innovations related to PSA Group's multi-sensory approach to build a unique experience of in-car well-being. Drawing on the four senses, it functions like a cocoon enveloping motorists in an atmosphere of comfort.
Enhancing well-being for a safer drive
Because unpleasant – and potentially dangerous – situations can be legion on the road, the PSA Group has developed the Chrysalide concept to improve ergonomics and increase in-car well-being as well as road safety. Relaxed – or energised, when the system detects a drop in attention levels – the driver adopts safer driving behaviour.
“Just sitting behind the steering wheel is enjoyable once again since it delivers an experience in well-being that you won’t find anywhere else”
Béatrice Daillant-Vasselin – Head of the multi-sensory project
The vehicle as a theatre for a total sensory experience
The Chrysalide concept synchronises several items of vehicle equipment to bring motorists an experience of total well-being by acting on the four senses:
- Smell, with a fragrance dispenser developed by French perfume professionals.
- Hearing, through a three-dimensional acoustic treatment.
- Sight,with an intelligent lighting system.
- Touch, through massaging and versatile seats.
Two programmes – relaxing and energising – alter the global atmosphere of the vehicle by combining several sensory components to work on the stress or inattention of the driver.
