Sony has now shown road tests of the Vision-S concept car
The biggest news from CES 2020 was the surprise unveiling of the Sony Vision-S electric car. Now come 2021, the concept has become something closer to reality as the Japanese tech icon unveiled a video of the car undergoing road safety tests at CES 2021 which began earlier in the week. . The Japanese company was working with Canadian automaker Magna and had also tested the car for autonomous driving in Tokyo. For now, the company has not released details on the marketing of the vehicle, but as shown in a video of the vehicle being tested in Austria, on public roads.
Sony is claiming for now that it isn’t going to build cars, but the video gives a glimpse of the company’s AirPeak drones. Sony says it has conducted public testing of the Vision-S concept to validate security systems. The car was meant to be a showcase of various technologies that Sony is bringing to the table, including a suite of sensors and imaging technologies, in addition to new infotainment system technology that will be relevant to the automotive industry.
This new video also shows the front and center driver information and infotainment system. It all works, which is impressive.
Sony has said in the past that the car has Autonomous Level 2 technology with 33 sensors combined. He also said that the level of autonomy will increase, maybe the position of the Japanese giant will change by next year, when we hope that we return physically to CES.
