If Lamborghini will place a trial of blockchain tech, why can’t Sony build a car? Japanese electronics titan unveiled the Vision S. This concept electric car is about to showcase what Sony can do for the cars of tomorrow. Sony has announced this car at the technology show CES 2020.
Vision S has a pair of 268-horsepower electric motors. It is enabling a 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a swift 4.8 seconds and a decent top speed of 149 mph (240 km/h). The zero-emissions sedan is equipped with 33 sensors. These sensors detect people and objects not just outside of the car, but also inside the cabin with individual rear seats and giant glass roof.
The Sony car has sensors – lidar, radar, and cameras. Also, there is a 360-degree audio with a huge, wraparound screen to entertain the driver.
“This prototype embodies our contribution to the future of mobility and contains a variety of Sony’s technologies,” Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said at the unveiling. The car features a panoramic screen that stretches the length of the dashboard. It is making the instrument panel and center screen fit into one contiguous screen. There are also rear-facing screens on the backs of the front headrests.
Sony has developed this car in collaboration with big names such as Nvidia, Continental, Bosch, ZF, and Qualcomm.
