At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) beginning today, January 5, Sony Chairman, President and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida announced that the company is starting a new division called Sony Mobility Inc.
At the event, Yoshida showed a brand new prototype of its Vision S concept electric car. He also announced that this will begin the commercialization of his electric vehicles.
At Sony’s press conference in Las Vegas, the company showcased its existing Sony Vision-S sedan, which was unveiled at CES last year. This year, the company also released a new model, the prototype Sony Vision-S SUV that is in the lineup.
“The excitement we got after we showed the Vision-S really encouraged us to think further about how we can use creativity and technology to change the experience of moving from one place to another,” said Yoshida. Later at the event, he unveiled the new Vision S SUV prototype.
Further emphasizing its features, Sony’s chief claimed that the Vision-S is based on factors such as adaptability, safety and entertainment. He said safety is Sony’s number 1 priority in providing a relaxed mobility experience. To monitor safety, Yoshida noted that a total of 40 sensors have been installed, both inside and outside the vehicle.
Referring to the other features, Yoshida said they are offering 5G that enables high-speed, high-capacity, and low-latency connectivity. This connectivity will be between the in-vehicle system and the cloud, he said.
In addition, Vision-S supports mobility by providing entertainment space for the best gaming experience and the best audio.
On the other hand, Sony shared several videos on YouTube showing both Vision-S prototype EVs for people to watch.
The Japanese electronics company already has advanced technology in sensors that is essential for autonomous driving. In addition, they also have audio and entertainment systems that are increasingly in demand for the upcoming generation of vehicles.
