The 2020 Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Fair (CES) opened on July 7 with a growing mix of artificial intelligence and 5G technology and car companies, with many new products and cutting-edge travel options.
Many companies, including traditional car companies and well-known electronics manufacturers, have released eye-catching new products at the exhibition, depicting the increasingly intelligent, safe and clean industry development direction.
Sony, the Japanese tech giant, displayed its first pure electric concept at the show, while Sony chief executive Ichiro Yoshida also announced Sony's formal entry into the technology sector.
The electric car, called Vision-S, brings together many of today's cutting-edge technologies, including 33 sensors, multiple widescreen displays,360-degree audio, lidar and camera, among others. Vision-S was created by Sony with several industry leaders, some of which came from manufacturers such as BlackBerry and Bosch, according to the company. In addition, the Vision-S interior dashboard features an integrated screen that not only clearly displays driving information, but also allows for recreational activities.
Sony said the concept car combines technologies such as sony's imaging and sensing, ai, communications and cloud. Because of the large number of sensors, the car's perception is even greater than the human eye, and in the age of smart cars it will bring a safer and more convenient experience.
At this year's CES exhibition, Mercedes-Benz released the concept car called VISION AVTR, whose core concept is sustainable use of resources. The Fiat Chrysler Automotive Group has released several versions of plug-in hybrid jeeps; BMW has also demonstrated the latest i3 concept; Ford has demonstrated innovative connectivity technology for the Mustang Mach-E model; and GM will incorporate Amazon's Alexa voice assistant service.
Hyundai Motor Group has proposed three mobile travel solutions for urban air travel, personalized customized models, and a central hub that integrates transportation and community activities.
At the same time, Hyundai unveiled the PAV (" Personal Aircraft ") concept car, named “e-A1” with a pair of wings and four propellers, primarily dedicated to addressing congestion in future big cities and tension in public facilities. Modern cars want to take advantage of the mobility of the air, greatly reduce the transportation time, and through the combination of vehicle aerodynamics and the design of the cabin in the car to bring passengers a comfortable and safe driving environment.
Because individual aircraft can take off and take off vertically by electric, it brings a kind of urban air travel without runway. Air travel is also seen by modern cars as an important innovative business in the future, which can help solve the problems faced by major cities such as traffic congestion and change people's way of travel.
鈥淲e have seen the dawn of a new era in which people will travel to the sky above the city,鈥? said Shen Zaiyuan, executive vice president of Hyundai Motor Group and head of urban air travel. Urban air travel will solve the problem of traffic congestion, so that people can spend their precious time on things they care about and like.
In addition, japan's toyota announced during the exhibition that plans to build a prototype of a \"future city\" at the foot of mount fuji to cut behavior into a broader industrial layout. The city will be powered by hydrogen energy batteries and will be a testing ground for technologies such as self-driving cars,\" smart homes \", and artificial intelligence. Toyota did not disclose the exact cost of the project. Construction of the project is scheduled to begin next year, and several executives say they have conducted a massive investigation and budgeted for it.
With the application of artificial intelligence and 5G technology, the new travel mode of \"self-driving \", intelligent network couplet and so on has more powerful technical support, and the technology merchants and car companies have appeared in the exhibition to show the new products of related technology.
5G technology allows for more accurate communication between self-driving vehicles and allows for information exchange between vehicles and roads. Valeriann is one of the companies working on the technology. Valerann, a joint venture between the UK and the US, specializes in the installation of sensors on roads. These sensors can detect traffic and weather conditions and give guidance to vehicles.
Jill Pratt, head of the Toyota Institute in Japan, has previously said the company's self-driving safety technology,\" Guardian,\" will launch in the 2020s. The technology will also be available to other automakers. \"Guardian\" is known to be more superior than the current market for advanced assisted driving systems, but is not a technology that can \"liberate hands \".
Qualcomm Technologies, a unit of the company, launched its new Snapdragon Ride platform at the show. The platform can meet the complex operational requirements from L1\/L2 advanced driving assistance to L2 to L4\/L5 automatic driving. Snapdragon Ride is scheduled to deliver to the mainframe plant and Tier1 supplier for early development in the first half of 2020, with cars carrying the platform expected to start production in 2030.
The launch of the Snapdragon Ride platform expanded Qualcomm's portfolio in the automotive sector. Qualcomm Technology claims that the platform is one of the current advanced and scalable open self-driving solutions in the automotive industry, including Snapdragon Ride security system-level chips, Snapdragon Ride security accelerators and Snapdragon Ride self-driving software stacks.
In addition, the company will demonstrate the next generation of smart car fully connected control architecture; bosch has established a “driverless car experience ” at the exhibition, showing driving-aid technology, including automatic parking, to pave the way for the next driverless car; and daimler ceo conlinsson will elaborate on how future people and cars interact.
