          Sony has made a critical move when it comes to safety in this vehicle. They've taken safety to the next level by use of technology at its best. The four main highlights as far as safety is concerned are as below:

  1. Oval Sensing-  

  2. This car comes with a total of 33 automotive-grade sensors surrounding the vehicle which creates a cacoon like structure which Sony calls as Oval Sensing. These sensors are a combination of cameras, sony's CMOS sensors, radar's/ultrasonic sensors, Solid-State LiDAR to provide a 360 degree sensing around the car. 

  3. Driving Assistance- 

  4. Another safety feature for the users is the driving assist. All the sensors surrounding the vehicle continuously monitor the traffic conditions and provide you with easy driving assistance like an advanced cruise control which can maintain a particular distance between next vehicle and your vehicle, self-park, auto lane change, etc. This makes driving easier and much safer even reducing the stress on the driver. 

  5. Advanced Camera Monitoring System- 

  6. The Vision-S has advanced camera systems which automatically detect the vehicles and pedestrians before the driver and give alerts accordingly. This car doesn't have side mirrors instead has a set of cameras at both the sides which display the output on anti-glare display for the driver.

  7. Driver Monitoring- 

  8. The internal sensors will recognize drivers and co-passengers state of mind inside the vehicle using facial expressions and body movements. These sensors calculate your concentration and fatigue levels and will send you necessary alerts and even change cabin temperature and lighting accordingly.

Price And Availability

Well coming to the price, this is just a concept car whose price isn't revealed at the expo. CES is a platform which is meant to display innovations and concepts. So most of the technology and prototypes displayed there have a very thin chance that they'll actually come to the consumer market. But looking after the efforts Sony has made for this vehicle let's hope it's available to consumers in the near future.

For those of you who are really looking forward to this car, here's a bonus video!
