TOKYO -- Sony will work on technologies for autonomous cars by combining its expertise in image sensors with artificial intelligence technologies of robot developer ZMP.

     Sony plans to start mass-producing image sensors for driverless cars in December. These will boast roughly 10 times the sensitivity of typical automotive sensors, making it possible to detect obstacles in low light. ZMP software technologies will instantly analyze the huge volumes of data collected by the sensors.
