Automotive Industry at CES 2020

Apart from all the future technology of consumer entertainment goods like 8K curved TVs, Camera, iPod and other things automobile industry will also unveil some magical technology. Which has the power to transform the future transport industry in the world.

Important keynote talk

Industry’s key people will deliver the keynote at different topics to and those are from Samsung, Daimler, CTA, Delta, Quibi, U.S Department of transportation and many others. Related to the autonomous – electric – shared and connected transport here I have listed just two which is very important.

Daimler Keynote Address – Monday, Jan. 6 at 8:30 PM

Ola Källenius – Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. It is expected that Ola Källenius will present a groundbreaking concept car which is inspired by one of the most innovative entertainment brands. In other words, this concept car will show a completely new form of interaction between humans, technology and nature.

The Path to the Future of Work – Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 2 PM

Ivanka Trump, Advisor to the President, and Gary Shapiro, President and CEO, Consumer Technology Association will take part in the discussions over the employment of the workforce in the tech industry. Specially for the automotive sector the world is witnessing the job cut at a mass level and future also not look very convincing. So, it becomes necessary to have a clear dialog among the administration and the industry to have a clear vision for moving towards electrified, shared and connected transport.

Important conferences related to transport industry-

Similar to the keynotes, there are many planned conferences going to be there. In addition, the featured Speakers list of CES 2020 includes the name like-

Carl Esposito (Senior Vice President and President, E-Systems/Lear),
Chris Moyer (VP & CTO/Exelon) and
Maya Pindeus (CEO/Humanising Autonomy).

Connected services:

The transport system is getting complex day by day. In this situation it becomes very necessary to bring synchronization among all the vehicles on the road. Interestingly, this can be done by allowing all the vehicle to talk with each other same time. In conclusion, the internet will play a major role here. This technology will minimize the road accidents and also enhance the driving experience through the connected car technology. The key participants in this conference topic are-

Gil Reiter (VP of Product Management and Marketing/SafeRide Technologies).

Autonomous Public Transportation:

Autonomus shuttle and self flying taxies are going to be the important part of public and individual transport in future. Above all, there is a higher change for these technologies to go main stream in the future. Therefore, the experts from same industry will have a discussion over this and the key participants are-
Ryan Kelly (Head of Marketing and Communications/Virgin Hyperloop One),
Alisyn Malek (COO/May Mobility),
Joann Muller (Transportation Correspondent/Axios) and
Michael Thacker (Executive VP, Technology and Innovation/Bell Helicopter)

Partnerships Drive Innovation for Autonomous Vehicles:

The challenge to adopt in vehicle technology is the huge investment. The major one is design, development, testing and manufacturing of any new vehicle technology. However, every one is not ready to bet on that high risk with this much of high investment. So, the industry is looking at each other to collaborate so that they could successfully develop the new technology at shared investment and by minimizing the risk. In this conference leader will have discussion to develop the autonomous vehicle. Key participants are-
Nishant Batra (CTO/Veoneer),
John Bozzella (President and CEO/Global Automakers),
Laura Major (Chief Technology Officer/Aptiv Autonomous Mobility).

IoT and AI Revolutionizing Transportation:

The coming decades will be of electric, autonomous and connected transport. So, the ‘Internet of things’ and ‘artificial intelligence’ will play a major role to transform the vehicle driving experience. In addition, the device connectivity, electric Powertrain, shared mobility and connected vehicle technology will be the main agenda for this conference. Key participants are-
João Barros (CEO & Founder/Veniam),
Alexander Hitzinger (CEO, Volkswagen Autonomy and Board Member at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Volkswagen),
