Japanese electronics giant Sony presented the Vision-S electric car at the Consumer Electronic Show at the International Technology Show, which greatly surprised the participants of the event.
It is reported that the model is designed to demonstrate various Sony technologies. "The model is equipped with 33 different sensors, has several displays and a surround sound system. There is also a permanent internet connection," the statement said. "We are stepping up our efforts to contribute to the future of the auto industry," said Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida while presenting the electric car.
However, the Japanese company did not specify whether there are any plans to launch mass production of the vehicle. " It was quite a shock to be honest with you. It highlights how the company is reinventing itself. " said Bob O'Donnell, president and founder of TECHnalysis Research.
Among the features of the car is an identification system that can recognize passengers as well as gesture control. In addition, Sony developed powerful image sensors that can be used to analyze the road ahead of the car.
