It appears Sony and Yamaha Motors teamed up to develop a boxy new self-driving cart called as SC-1 Sociable Cart. It will be used around a theme park, complete with huge 4K screens on the inside and outside. Basically, it is designed to be used places like golf courses and theme parks. The electric autonomous box features big-screen TVs inside and out and will launch strictly as an experiential means rather than product consumers could buy.
Different from its earlier models, the theme cart is smarter, extra comfortable and longer- as well.

While, coming to its specs, it carries four 55-inch 4K LCD monitors, and a 49-inch 4K LCD monitor sits inside. On the other hand, on the outer side of the screen, it plays different type of content. Mostly, it can be used for advertising, while the interior screen can play a video of the exterior or stream a variety of different entertainment options.
Besides the outer look, the interior is also set up to use augmented reality for an immersive experience. Upping the creep factor, the exterior cameras can scan people walking around, read their demographics, and aim specific ads at them.
The SC-1 is a direct result of the shift that has been happening throughout the entire automotive market. The self-drive vehicle has capacity to store energy, as it is equipped with a lithium-ion battery and puts it to use with a DC electric motor. Initially, it is made for only five passengers, and it has a top speed close to 12 mph. Under certain conditions, the SC-1 can be remote-controlled, as well.
Speaking about its design, its boxy design allows for a height of about six feet, and it’s about 51 inches wide. Because it uses cameras, sensors, and LIDAR to see and read its exterior, there are absolutely no windows on the vehicle. That means there’s room for screens, both inside and out.
