Seat Leon Cristobal Concept Is The Safest Car In The Company’s History 14

SEAT has unveiled the Leon Cristobal concept at the Smart City Expo in Barcelona, Spain.

Named after the patron saint of drivers, the Leon Cristobal concept is being billed as the safest car in the company’s history as it features six different systems that have been designed to reduce the risks of being involved in a collision. The systems are probably not what you would expect but they target the main causes of accidents such as drowsiness, distractions, speeding, and alcohol consumption.

In order to tackle these problems, which cause 80% of all traffic accidents, the concept features a built-in breathalyzer that will prevent the car from being used if alcohol is detected on the driver’s breath. Another unique feature is the so-called “drive-coach” which is a voice assistant that provides personalized safety warnings.

Designers also installed a video camera-based display mirror that eliminates blind spots and provides a better field of vision. There’s also a Mentor mode that allows parents to limit the vehicle’s speed and monitor its location when their children are driving . Another interesting mode is the Guardian Angel setting which activates all 15 of the car’s active and passive safety systems.

Should something go wrong, the concept’s black box will send images and data to a smartphone following a collision.

Besides showcasing the Leon Cristobal concept, the company showed 10 eMii prototypes which will soon become available to employees of Metropolis:Lab Barcelona and Pier 01 as part of a car-sharing project. The Smart City Expo also held the Autonomous Driving Challenge grand finale which tasked 50 students from nine universities to develop autonomous driving software that could drive a scale model vehicles through a closed course.

Seat will present a new concept car based on the Leon, during the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, from November 14 to 16.

Christened Seat Leon Cristobol, the study is described as being “the safest vehicle in the history of the brand”, whose name comes from “the patron saint of drivers and travelers”.

It features advanced safety equipment such as the Drive Coach, a technology that emits safety warnings and minimizes driver distractions, and Black Box, which sends the recorded data and images to a smartphone, in the event of a crash.

The Spanish automaker has fitted the Leon Cristobol with other safety gizmos that they will detail during the event, when they will also present a smartphone app that’s aimed at improving mobility in Barcelona. The app will inform users of construction work and hazard areas, advising them to change their route.

Seat will also display the zero-emission eMii prototype, before the first cars are delivered to employees of the Metropolis:Lab Barcelona and Pier 01, to be tested around the city.
