Our team at JVIS kicked off the new year by seeing what the world’s been up to at the most influential tech event — CES.
Formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show, CES returned this year with a bang as investors, media and tech workers from across the globe gathered for the four-day tech industry event in Las Vegas to get a glimpse at the latest innovations in mobility, digital health, artificial intelligence, robotics, food tech, smart home, digital assets and more.
At such a massive event like CES, it can be a bit overwhelming and challenging to get in all of the must-see events, announcements and show floor activities. That’s why our JVIS team on-hand at the event made use of the Tesla Loop to navigate between the Central and West Halls and check out the various technologies and products on display. While we cannot disclose specific details about the JVIS technologies and products that were featured with our partners at CES, it was a thrill for team JVIS to see them in person and explore the many other CES innovations, particularly those at the intersection of tech and transportation.
The mobility industry is experiencing a major transformational period with significant innovation taking place in the development of smarter, more connected and more autonomous vehicles that are making the shift to electrification. These innovations are challenging traditional methods of transporting people and goods, and the industry is putting its focus on finding ways to improve mobility while also increasing efficiency and reducing the environmental impact.
