Getting on Board Will Mean Jumping into a World of Excitement
With the spread of 5G connectivity and the advancement of self-driving technology, the vehicle interior will become a place for relaxation, like a living room. In anticipation of this evolution, the VISION-S Prototype cabin is designed to be a luxurious space in which entertainment content can be enjoyed to the full. Each seat has a full-body soundstage and luxurious visual delights. In addition, the intuitive ergonomically designed UI provides a deep sense of comfort and immersion that transcends the constraints of the mobile space.
With the newly designed audio system, vehicle occupants can experience an immersive, three-dimensional sound field in the car that envelops them in sound from all directions, which is made possible by 360 Reality Audio. Utilizing Sony's object-based spatial audio technology, the artist can freely place sound in a 360-degree global sphere, providing listeners with an intense, immersive experience of the music just as intended by the artist.
A series of panoramic screens spanning the entire width of the car provide the luxury of enjoying movies, games and other video content inside the vehicle. The ergonomically designed UI is highly intuitive, with a horizontal base that takes into account the driver's line-of-sight, allowing the driver and passenger to access content independently.
The center display and passenger display work together remotely with a PlayStation® connected from home via 5G, enabling passengers to play state-of-the-art gaming in the car. The large, dynamic screen enables powerful graphic expression and can be enjoyed during time spent waiting in the car, such as while charging or parked.
Rear Seat Entertainment
The rear seats also feature 10.1-inch screens, allowing passengers to enjoy entertainment content separately.
Various Control System
The L-Swipe gesture lets you pass the display screen to the next display with a quick swipe of the screen in the shape of an L. The driver and front passenger can be linked horizontally, just as the rear seat screen can be easily operated from the front seat. In addition to the touchscreen, a variety of input styles are available, including jog dials and DualShock, which are accessible even when the seat is reclined. Our goal is to create the next generation of interaction, enabling a fully intuitive experience through which the vehicle occupant can interact naturally with the surrounding environment, including other passengers and the vehicle itself.
