The selection of the most interesting automotive technology at CES 2019
CES 2019: electronic technologies for future vehicles
The beginning of the year immediately starts with one important events, set all the “i” in environment technologies not only for the foreseeable, come 2019, but the exciting some time in advance. This, of course, talking about the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) international consumer electronics show, held annually in Las Vegas where various companies will present their developments in the sphere of high technologies and technological solutions on the level of consumer electronics and appliances.
As the car became for a long time to a certain extent, electronic gadget, not the last violin in the ivent are also brands and manufacturers of avtoperevozki. What new things have pleased us with CES coming in 2019, you can see right now:
Samsung Harman International
A subsidiary of Samsung Harman International (absorption of the “Harman” happened a few years ago) introduced the first major development at CES 2019 radio Personali-Fi. According to the manufacturer, Personali-Fi – first device-independent audio solution not only for cars but also for any other environment playing.
Personali-Fi captures the personal preferences of the user through the application and stores them in the cloud. When interacting with “intelligent” gadgets that are processed by the service Clari-Fi sound is transmitted directly to the end device via Wi-Fi or LTE.
Integration in the data processing of the vehicle allows access to the microphone and the navigation system. Personali-Fi should be easy to integrate into the main unit and distribute user preferences to the available audio sources.
Computer from ZF
ZF is known for its transmissions. But suppliers from Friedrichshafen vigorously searching for the technological possibilities of conversion of their vehicles into Autonomous driving, and for that, the manufacturer just needs to explore unusual destinations. At CES, ZF presented a new supercomputer. “ZF ProAI RoboThink” able to perform up to 600 trillion calculations per second (600 tera-operations).
Thanks to this computing power vast amounts of data can be networked and processed in real-time. With such technologies, Autonomous driving in fourth (fully automated) and five levels (without the driver) is getting implemented today. And this, for a moment, one of the prerequisites for such future scenarios “robots”cars, as the services of Autonomous robotic taxi Ride-Hailing, which transports passengers using smart algorithm for shortest route to the destination of the indifference of the driver.
Emotional Kia “READ”
Kia represents the technology of emotion recognition in real-time. With the help of artificial emotional intelligence, the cabin of the car in the future will be managed, focusing on the feelings of their passengers. In particular, this means that the electronic dummy, recognizing that the person is sad, create a relaxed atmosphere that, in theory, will help to distract. The system is called READ and has been developed in collaboration with Media Lab Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT).
Not an electronics one (the new CLA from Mercedes-Benz)
Mercedes presented the new CLA electronics of the second generation. Notchback (or a coupe-shaped sedan) should be more like sports dvuhdverka than its predecessor. Distinctive feature: infotainment system is updated, now it MBUX. Changed the appearance of the sedan – new headlights and taillights are present. Added the top version of AMG 35 306-forces. But the interior will not be significantly different from the A-Class first generation.
After Tesla’s China SUV “Byton M-Byte”
The more displays, the better! Apparently was the thinking of the designers of this new Chinese electric SUV “Byton M-Byte” XXL 48-inch display is made on the entire width of the cabin. Moreover, another screen is elegantly mounted in the upper portion of the steering wheel and one in the armrest.
It is noted that electric car from China is not a simple concept, and almost fully decorated, the final version of the production model. Production will begin in the fourth quarter of 2019, with a volume of up to 300 thousand pieces annually.
Virtual reality for cars from Nissan
The fact that cars in future will be able to see around corners, Nissan would like to prove with his system I2V. The CES study shows the solution to augmented reality, which projects the data on the 3D map with a circular overview of the field of view of the driver. Using sensors and data from the electronic “cloud”, the car will be able to learn and tell the driver what is happening before them at a distance of tens of meters, including scanning intersections and displaying the events on them. This reduces the risk of accidents significantly. Plus, a hologram just looks beautiful!
Audi with a new information system
Audi also did not exhibit side, showing its new infotainment system. In 2017, the company from Ingolstadt presented the familiar operating concept of the A8 with two screens and tactile feedback. In 2019, it was shown how developed the infotainment system to meet the needs of Autonomous driving. In addition, Audi spoke about the “atmosphere of the movie while driving” and the new virtual world technology “Holoride”.
Outgoing Honda cars
At CES, Honda demonstrated how cars can communicate with each other in the future through communication technologies of the middle range “Safe Swarm”, the chain is advanced information to surrounding vehicles. This will allow to avoid collisions in different complicated situations in which not every driver will be able to assess the development properly.
While in traffic vehicle will need to agree with each other, who is on which lane will move, respectively, should reduce the number of traffic jams.
Another model from Honda. Autonomous ATV, able to think not only for themselves but also for others. In areas such as agriculture, construction and even the salvation of men, Autonomous vehicle, the robot will become an indispensable thing. Routine and dangerous work should not distract humanity from the more important things!
Quadrics has already been presented at CES in 2018, but this year Honda demonstrates improved version with more advanced options.
Taxi robot from Bosch
In Las Vegas, Bosch will illustrate the concept of the Shuttle, designed to advance Autonomous driving in big cities. The futuristic car has large Windows and therefore looks very “air”. Bosch should supply for a hypothetical new equipment, software and provide digital services. This should allow users to book a vehicle to pay or share travel with other passengers.
Continental, with the door of the future
Continental demonstrates its automatic door system “Power Door Control”. The system allows the car doors to open and close fully Autonomous. If an obstacle is detected, the door will open as much as possible. Thus, scratches, dents and even accidents can be avoided. The system will also protect cyclists from careless door open…
Nissan has equipped the Leaf with its battery of larger size, calling Leaf model E-Plus.
BMW surprised the audience with an Autonomous motorcycle:
and showed how in the small trailer can be reasonably accommodated in any place, in any weather:
Daimler showed a large the new Freightliner Cascadia. Yes, this American brand produces trucks belongs to the Germans. But the technology of Autonomous movement is almost entirely “Made in Germany”!
Toyota in turn made one of the most advanced assistants for the drivers.
Hyundai has developed a concept machine on legs:
And Harley-Davidson unveiled an electric motorcycle:
