The annual technology jamboree that is the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, has just kicked off in Las Vegas, and we’ll be there to cover all the big automotive and vehicle-related news from the show.
While early attendees limber up with forums and talks before the main show floors open, there have already been a few pre-show reveals and conferences. We covered the big Byton news here, and there’s been an announcement from Daimler which could have some interesting possible effects on the autonomous vehicle world, which you’ll find here.
It’s become increasingly tricky to differentiate cars from the electronics packages which they contain and which lends them many of their functions, so at CES the stories often begin with the suppliers who create those elements and design their functions. We’ll be hunting down many of the more interesting examples of that, as well as looking out for the carmakers who choose the show to demonstrate their latest applications of that technology.
But the enormous, sprawling show is, as they like to say in Vegas, a bit of a crapshoot so no doubt there’ll be plenty of surprises and discoveries to be found from some highly unexpected quarters. We’ll be bringing you those too. Wish us luck (or at least enough so we don’t blow the whole editorial budget on a bad poker hand)…
