AImotive and Sony partner to develop ADAS capability for Vision-S prototype

AImotive, the most highly-funded automated driving technology company in Europe, is working with Sony to develop its automated driving software stack with Sony’s Vision-S Prototype (main picture and below).

According to Sony, the Vision-S – announced at CES 2020 – is conceived to re-imagine mobility as we know it, by integrating the advanced ADAS and automated driving systems with the latest electric vehicle technology and an innovative entertainment system.

Sony disclosed an update of the Vision-S concept on January 11 at the all-digital CES 2021, highlighting that prototypes are already being tested on public roads.

AImotive and Sony are working together to ensure that AImotive’s suite of technologies provide targeted L2+ ADAS capabilities to ensure high safety standards.

Izumi Kawanishi, senior vice president of Sony in charge of artificial robotics business, says: “AImotive brings excitement to the automated driving industry, creating scalable and reliable automated systems.

“Working with them to further develop technology for the Vision-S concept is a decision that we believe will contribute to the future of mobility.”

László Kishonti, CEO and founder at AImotive, says: “We are super excited to be working with internationally respected Sony.

“This is a great collaboration for us, helping us better understand the key challenges in developing and integrating advanced ADAS technologies from well-respected industry leaders. We look forward to working closely with Sony to complete realizing the Vision-S Prototype.”

AImotive will be announcing new and significantly enhanced versions of its respected production-ready aiDrive software stack for L2–L4 automated driving, as well as its popular aiSim development, simulation and validation tools later in Q1 2021.
