While overwhelming at times, the Consumer Electronics Show this year has a number of interesting automotive sessions.
As a tech journalist, I have attended the Consumer Electronics Show a number of times over the past two decades, but do I miss it? If you haven’t been, it can be quite overwhelming given that it is aimed at consumers, so imagine loud music, flashing lights, and booth babes.
It is also fun for us geeks from a technology perspective. Actually, it is interesting for anyone that likes to see cool and new technology.
Had I attended this year, I would have been on the lookout for all things automotive because there is so much happening there. NXP, Imagination, Cadence, Mentor Graphics, Marvell, ARM, Rambus, among the many automotive suppliers. The CES exhibit list includes 494(!) exhibitors in the automotive electronics category alone, not to mention at least the five automotive-focused conference sessions.
And as we here at Semiconductor Engineering ramp up our coverage of automotive electronics and security, 2016 is already shaping up to be a very interesting year…and I have a feeling I will find myself not missing CES next year.
Are you attending CES this week? Comment below and let me know what you are seeing of interest.
