Those deep in tech may have been surprised but acknowledge the logic as solid. Sony as the global leader in image sensors packed a total of 33 sensors (including CMOS image sensors and ToF sensors) in order to detect and recognize people and objects inside and outside the car and provide highly advanced driving support.
Sony’s “360 Reality Audio” provides a deep and immersive audio experience inside the ride as well via speakers built into each seat to encapsulate passengers in sound. The front seats face a panoramic screen on which rich and diverse content can be enjoyed through an intuitive user interface.
Sony Corporation President & CEO Ken Yoshida states that “Creativity is a powerful driving force that moves Sony forward. When it is combined with our technology, it is unstoppable.”
5G Proof of Concept Trial
Sony conducted a proof of concept trial by capturing video of a live football game with a 5G-connected camera, showing how 5G can allow for more creative and untethered camerawork while also reducing set-up time and costs. Visitors to the Sony booth saw a video introducing this initiative, and also the equipment used during the trial including Sony’s PXW-Z450 shoulder camcorder, Xperia 5G mmWave device that enables high-speed data uplink, and a prototype transmitter box that encodes and transmits high-quality video in real-time
