it comes under the umbrella of sony’s new vision-S initiative, which is focused on mobility. the car features 33 sensors ’embedded’ within the car to monitor both inside and out including fusion technology which derives data from different sources to ensure safety, and time-of-flight (ToF) in-cabin sensors that can detect and recognise people and objects inside the car.

the technology used in the vision-S enables features such as self-parking, advanced cruise control and ‘auto-lane change functions.’ an ultra-wide monitor can be used for entertainment and information purposes, linked up to the company’s 360 reality audio, which provides immersive audio via speakers built into each seat.

the vision-S can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 4.5 seconds thanks to two 200 kilowatt motors – located at its front and rear – powering the four-seater car, which weighs 5,180 pounds. sony hasn’t confirmed if it will put the car into production so it remains just a demonstration of its electronic capabilities.
