SC-1 Sociable Cart, Sony - Yamaha
Enrich daily routine of mobility through augmented perception of exterior with art.
MATURITY LEVEL MOCKUP
CO-DEVELOPED BY SONY & YAMAHA
SC-1 aims at enriching the daily routine of mobility through augmented perception of exterior with artistic imagination and finally enable the passengers trust of the autonomous vehicule by experiencing its supernatural perception of surrounding.
An interesting project focusing on passengers experience and the emotion created by a show merging surrounding and art. A complete opposition of techno-push concepts enabling the passenger to work or be more active.
SC-1 is an electric fake autonomous vehicle (driven remotly vehicle) for 5 people created joinly by Sony and Yamaha replacing windows with high definition displays and sensors.

Enhance the exterior perception for passengers
When getting in the car and driving, the passengers see perfectly the surrounding thanks to the 5 displays and the cameras.
At night, high quality displays and cameras provide a much better vision of exterior than looking at reality through the door.

food for thoughts ...
How to consider the vehicle as a link between passengers and surrounding and between passengers?
Don't we need art and imagination in addition to just convenience, comfort, ergonomy and status?
How to design the desirable autonomous experience for the ex-driver?
Can we think displays as windows on the world: from e-mirror to e-windshield to building e-window?
