Sony took out the Vision-S to the stage at the absolute end of its CEO keynote. The company did not share much information regarding the Concept car. We are not sure if this will likely be a one-off concept. It is unclear if Sony will make it a habit and gradually enter the self-driving and automobile market.
It is also possible that this concept is likely a reference car meant to inspire other automobile makers. Right before the surprise reveal, the company also shared some key announcements regarding its existing products. These include the new logo for the upcoming PlayStation 5. The company also noted that its image sensor division is currently investing in technologies including LIDAR, Time-of-Flight cameras, and more.
