Sony enters the world of mobility and introduces its first car at LA CES 2020: the Vision-S. According to the Japanese company, the sports car concept has been designed to be a meeting point between safety, reliability, comfort and entertainment. This prototype incorporates Sony’s imaging and sensing technologies, as well as on-board software regulated using Sony’s AI, telecommunication and cloud technologies, in order to continuously update and evolve its features.

A total of 33 sensors including CMOS image sensors and ToF sensors are embedded within the vehicle, in order to detect and recognise people and objects inside and outside the car, and provide highly advanced driving support. Sony’s “360 Reality Audio” provides a deep and immersive audio experience through speakers built into each seat to encapsulate passengers in sound. The front seats face a panoramic screen on which rich and diverse content can be enjoyed through an intuitive user interface. The car can also rely on sensors like solid state LiDAR which uses highly accurate distance measurement to gain a precise 3D grasp of real-life spaces and on “Safety Cocoon” represents a safe-zone concept in which supports vehicle safety in various daily driving situations by detecting 360 degrees around the vehicle, enabling early preparation to help evade risk.
