CES 2014: Summary of Day 3, Focus: Automotive

Never before have cars played such a large role in the CES and while we’re calling ourselves Geeks Mobile: What is more mobile than cars? Therefore, we have also been dealing in detail with the novelties in this area.
CES 2014: Summary of Day 3, Focus: Automotive

Automotive has been a very rich topic at this year’s CES. More and more cars are given the opportunity to be operated via touch-screen displays, make them work with the vehicle together, our mobile devices and, more generally, the industry always shoots better one on this relatively new topic. Never could see it more clearly than at this year’s CES, and therefore so many car manufacturers were also never represented with as much exhibition space as this year in Las Vegas.

The Wrap Up Day 3 at the show we have therefore almost exclusively times taken care of cars, our short one-hour video discuss Corvida and Sascha detail where the journey with the cars going and what we already marvel at the Las Vegas Convention Center now could .

This great work comes to the Manufacturer: It’s not just about to break new ground in terms of connectivity and networking, but still, too concerned to establish alternative drives that are to replace fossil fuels. So Toyota has shown, for example, an automobile, which is completely run on hydrogen.

Quite difficult ascended also had Mercedes: you will probably have noticed that our videos are equipped with a Mercedes-intro during CES. The company has sponsored us on this CES and also may ye seen as an indicator of how seriously one takes this event, which in itself has nothing to do only at first sight with cars. Regardless of this sponsorship is necessary to Mercedes admit though, not to have had probably one of the most beautiful concept cars at the start of the fair. For this single model that Sasha has filmed with his Google Glass, already worth looking in our Wrap Up video.

If this concept actually times to go into production, we have to live with the fact that the mobile is only reserved for the customer with a bulging bank account, because low this car would definitely not be. However, I am incredibly fascinated by how consistent this concept presented by the exterior design on the interior including a great variety of speakers, LEDs and a display for the driver, which has no equal.

Even BMW was logically represented at CES and we could take a look at their ConnectedDrive technology, where one works hand in hand with Intel and shows what is available to us here. You do not even have a smartphone while having to use ConnectedDrive, because you can put a SIM card even in the car.

The other sizes in the industry such as Audi, Chevrolet and Ford have just visited and thus we have in this Wrap Up a cornucopia full of innovation, where we see that there are just the cars as many topics as in almost any other market . The networking is high on this list, but also the aforementioned drives and also the safety point. Eventually, driverless cars will be far more than just exotic on California roads or in concepts, the manufacturer and the CES has shown that we can move forward with giant strides it.

Companies like Intel and especially Google with NVIDIA and the newly founded Open Automotive Alliance are driving the various developments in the automotive industry. We will continue to better connect with our environment out of the car, can use more entertainment and have a lot more insight about our vehicle and increase security – brave new world, you may as well just say. Have fun with our Automotive Special:

Open Automotive Alliance
