At our first day at CES2020 we have seen a number of trends in mobility. These are mainly:
- Connected cars and autonomous driving
- Trucks going for Electric/Hybrid
- Urban transportation
- Logistics & Delivery
- AirTaxi´s and Flying mobility
- Disruptors in Car Manufacturing e.g. SONY
- and what can we expect from all the others that haven’t been here e.g. TESLA
In this article I will focus on our main takeaways for connected cars and autonomous driving. More articles about „New mobility“ and other areas will be released shortly by us.
BMW was showing a number of technology cases in their pavilion and offered a collection of cars to drive and take the experience whereas I have taken the i3 autonomous driving parcours (see first teaser picture upper right corner, short video right here). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpOoxHSZEok
The Audi AI:ME was one of the attractions in my view beside the e-tron Series.
We have also taken a closer look into Digital Matrix LED and further individualizing offered by that technology in that space and 3D Head-up-Display.
„“New mobility as one of the biggest megatrends – the car to become a smart device rather than just a car“(Jörg Bollow)
Mercedes with a strong focus on the EQC SUV, some others and the great AVTR presented by Ola Källenius in a Keynote here, which has a electric drive and communicates with it´s driver.
We also watched BYTON, FISKER and searched for TESLA. It was amazing to see all these and trying to understand each individual overall product strategy.
And here the SONY Vision S as a new car manufacturer in town. Followed by the fact that BOSCH, Continental and ZF will develop own IT-infrastructures that they will provide to car manufacturers.
Last but not least: Toyota with the announcement of its „Woven City“ one of the biggest plans for a SmartCity Concept in Japan. More about that shortly – stay tuned.
