Electronics giant Sony are hedging their bets on mobility taking over mobile communications as the next big trend in tech, and have unveiled an autonomous electric car, the Vision-S.

As a bellwether of the tech industry, Sony’s entry into autonomous vehicles is sure to make waves across the landscape of both automotive and tech.

Revealed as a surprise at CES 2020, the Vision-S car is suitably packed with technology and sensors, as could be expected from Sony. Features include 33 sensors inside and out, AI to detect and recognise people and 360 Reality Audio inside the cabin.

Sony chief executive Kenichiro Yoshida commented: "It's not an exaggeration to say that mobile has been the mega-trend of the last decade. I believe the next mega-trend will be mobility.”
