The Rinspeed Senso is an advanced future concept from 2005 that explores the idea of monitoring the drivers feeling and mood, and making interior environmental adjustments accordingly.

Ignoring the quite frankly vulgar bodywork and moving straight to the Senso's interior, the Senso measures the drivers biometric information by the use of a pulse rate monitoring wrist watch, and a 'Mobile Eye' camera recording driving behavior. This camera monitors how well and how often lane changes are made, proximity to vehicles in front and traveling velocity. The data gathered is then run through an onboard computer algorithm which evaluates the drivers overall state of mind.

Based on scientific research and the drivers disposition, the Rinspeed Senso produces visual, acoustic and aromatic stimuli to allow the driver to achieve 'relaxed attentiveness'.

Depending on the required stimulus, four small LCD monitors emit dazzle-free ambient light into the drivers line of vision, they include; stimulating orange and yellow, relaxing blue and violet or neutral green color.

The visual display is backed up by specially composed, digitally stored sounds, and specially developed scents which flow in through the ventilators.

Should the Senso 'sense' the driver is feeling tired, by tracking eye movement, the seat will vibrate to alert the driver. Its quite a clever car really.

Back to the body, Apparently the exterior was influenced by architecture. It didn't work. The end result looks more like a badly produced 3rd-rate film prop.

The 1385 kg Rinspeed Senso is powered by a 250 bhp Porsche Boxster S engine, modified to accept petrol and natural gas. This clean burning fuel reduces CO2 emissions by up to 30%. It is also capable of propelling the Rinspeed Senso to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds.
