Sony Vision-S SUV 5G Controlling System
VISION-S is equipped with the 5G network function. As a result, occupants can fully enjoy the cloud-based entertainment services that require low latency and high bandwidth, such as streaming movies, music, and games.
In order to maximize the performance of the 5G even in vehicles driven at high speed, we seek real-time performance by applying the technology that Sony cultivated during the development of smartphones to mobility.
Thanks to this technology, we will have new experiences of mobility, highly automated driving, and the remote-control system.
The Sony Vision-S 02 is equipped with all-wheel drive thanks to two electric motors, one mounted on the front axle and the other which drives the rear wheels.
Each produces 268 horsepower (200 kilowatts) to mirror the sedan. Acceleration figures were not disclosed, but sprinting to 62 mph (100 km / h) probably takes more than the 4.8 seconds required for the Vision-S 01 since it is 287 pounds (130 kilograms) lighter.
The greater weight additionally had a poor effect at the top speed, at 112 mph (180 km / h) or 37 mph (60 km / h) much less than the sedan.
The material similarities among the 2 go beyond electric-powered motors, as each cars are precisely the same duration and the wheelbase, with the SUV being a bit wider and obviously taller.
They share an air suspension, however with a greater generous 6.2 inches (15.7 centimeters) of ground clearance for the brand-new concept, which is sort of an inch greater than the sedan.
Sony Vision-S SUV Interior
However, Sony’s strength, and arguably the main reason it entered the automotive space, lies in the interior of the Vision-S.
Like most contemporary cars, the interior of the electric vehicle is dominated by flat screens, audio technology and the user interface – areas where the vast Sony empire already possesses a vast expertise.
Here, the electronics giant doesn’t need to collaborate, because it can simply reuse and re-optimize its existing technology; There is 360º sound from the brand’s audio division, as well as the ability to operate PlayStation hardware remotely using 5G. Lip reading and passenger detection technology is also under development.
Kawanishi tells us that Vision-S’s voice recognition technology is mostly sourced from Sony’s Xperia line of phones, as is the crisp user interface, and there are Sony-branded screens throughout the cabin.
The Japanese giant’s experience with mobile devices also contributes to Vision-S Link, a peer-to-peer application in Sony Vision-S SUV for the electric vehicle.
