Pod Concept (2001)

Key Features:

  • The pod takes the car from being just a tool to being a partner
  • The pod (the name evoking an image of a protective capsule that gently envelops and protects family members) has an electronic personality to help it detect the feelings of the driver and to express itself
  • The pod detects irregular driver biometric data such as pulse and perspiration rate, using the data as a warning to indicate the degree of driver impatience. The car then communicates with the driver and urges caution
