CES 2022 actually happened—with enormous amounts of empty space in between those exhibitors who didn’t stay home. The Consumer Technology Association, organizers of the show, struggled to put a positive spin on the situation, saying the number of participants ultimately rose as small and medium-sized businesses didn’t have any other opportunity to meet prospective customers. Yes, well. At least physical distancing wasn’t a challenge. And traffic was so much less congested than usual.
Thanks to remarkable hybrid/online organization, though, it was great visiting even without meeting all these face-masked visitors. Many exciting companies, technologies, and products, as usual.
New automakers like Turkey’s Togg; in the mist of the EV tsunami; Sony speeding up in the race with Apple and Xiaomi to be the first electronics-entertainment company to launch an EV; Cockpit electronics and software; ADAS and driver monitoring, and interior air quality were highlights of the auto tech-centered parts of the show.
This newsletter edition is fully dedicated to information gathered during last week CES. We hope you enjoy it! Stay tuned all along the year as we keep tabs on whether, when, and how all these innovations and concepts turn into commercial reality; that one of the main reasons DVN Interior exists.
