Sony described the electric car as the first prototype to result from its new “initiative”, called Vision-S, which will be used to display its developments in the area of mobility.

To support autonomous driving, the car uses a type of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) called Solid State, that doesn’t require moving parts, to make digital 3D representations of real-life spaces. Other safety features include sensor fusion technology, meaning the data is derived from different sources, and Time-of-Flight (ToF) in-cabin sensors that can detect and recognise people and objects inside the car.

The car also incorporates an array of electronics technologies that aim to offer comfort and an “unprecedented in-car entertainment experience”. Sony hopes these features will help it “get closer to creators and users” by allowing them to “deliver reality”. This includes a panoramic screen spanning the dashboard and the company’s 360 Reality Audio, which provides an immersive audio experience via speakers built into each seat.
