In an era where all products and data are connected, VISION-S Prototype is also part of the network. Data is synchronized in real time and the software is repeatedly updated over the network. Moving from the conventional group of independent systems to a system that has the potential to continue growing in real time, with the VISION-S Prototype, Sony is pursuing a car that never stops evolving.
The car's network connection allows for smooth integration with your smart devices. Once the mobile app is controlled remotely, the car starts preparing to leave. It starts the vehicle, adjusts cabin temperature and seat position, and automatically unlocks the doors when the driver approaches. As soon as you get in, you can leave in comfort.
The ToF camera and driver monitoring cameras ensure that the environment inside the vehicle's cabin is optimized for the individual. The camera performs personal identification and recognizes the condition of the occupant. If it detects a sleeping passenger in the back seat, the car will automatically control the climate around that seat to a suitable temperature. The system continues to evolve through everyday use, learning your preferred temperature and music, driving preferences and routes, and actual driving data to make the space even more comfortable.
The VISION-S Prototype includes the ability to connect to 5G networks. To fully leverage 5G performance, even when the vehicle is traveling at high speeds, we are working with our telecom industry partners to pursue real-time capabilities and enable sophisticated autonomous driving and remote control.
