Members of the technology industry came together in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV, one of the largest tech events of the year. More than 115,000 attendees from across the globe had an opportunity to connect, gain insights and be inspired by developments changing the world.
Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, CES features every aspect of the tech sector. During the four-day event, 3,200 exhibitors showcased their products and services in all areas of emerging technologies, including 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, internet of things (IoT), smart cities, and electric and connected vehicles.
The automotive and transportation sector is expected to be one of the most impacted by technology in 2023 –39% compared to other sectors, according to a study by IEEE, an organization dedicated to advancing technology.
The study, titled “The Impact of Technology in 2023 and Beyond: an IEEE Global Study,” surveyed global technology leaders from the U.S., U.K., China, India and Brazil. When asked what areas of technology will be among the five most important in 2023, responses included cloud computing (40%), 5G (38%), metaverse (37%), electric vehicles (EVs) (35%), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) (33%).
This year, an increasing number of OEMs exhibited at CES as part of the vehicle technology section. Concept cars, connected vehicles and autonomous mobility were all on display. In addition to traditional OEMs, technology companies showcased their entry into the auto- motive market.
