The world’s largest annual electronics extravaganza “Consumer Electronic Show (CES)” is ready to showcase a range of conceptual products including robots, Artificial Intelligence (AI) devices and self-driving vehicles. These new products are guiding consumers towards a future driven by smart technology.
Prominent Tech companies that entered the field of self-driving car and AI in 2016 are exhibiting updated designs of their products in the ongoing event. These companies are preparing to display the diverse range of products based on Augmented Reality (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Virtual Reality (VR).
CEA serves as an annual electronic trade show, which is hosted and organized by the US Consumer Technology Association. The event takes place each year in January at the Las Vegas Convention Centre. The event provides an opportunity for innovators to display new products and technologies in the consumer electronic industry.
Technologies to Lookout for
Connected and self-driving cars – while the year 2016 was full of technological setbacks in autonomous vehicles, it also witnessed minor but cheerful success. For instance, the Sweden-based car manufacturer Volvo agreed on making a fleet of self-driving vehicles for Uber. Likewise, several other automakers such as Honda, Nissan and Hyundai also reportedly played an important role in providing software plugins for such autonomous cars. The event is anticipated to bring in more advanced intelligent driverless systems, making vehicles smarter.
Ultra-high Definition TVs – the last edition was all about high fidelity 4K TVs showcased by industry giants such as LG and Samsung. This year is expected to set the stage for low-cost high-quality technologies that will be aimed at consumers in developing countries. TCL, LG, Sony, and Samsung are expected to lead the segment.
Smartphone – it has been one of the most attractive sections of the CES in the past couple of editions. This time around, the section may perform averagely as the industry has become overcrowded. As a matter of fact, smartphone manufacturers have now shifted their focus on AR and VR technology with new segments of 360 degree cameras and VR headsets at lower prices.
Summary: The Consumer Electronics Show is all set to invade the city of Las Vegas
