Default Consumer Electronics Show : CES 2016

The automotive market remains a driving force behind the strength of the global consumer technology industry.

This year’s CES extravaganza, which will take place in Las Vegas between January 6-9, dedicates 25% more floor space to its 115 auto-related exhibitors including nine top-tier manufacturers.

BMW ConnectedRide concept - To highlight the two-wheeled future, the company modified a K1600 GTL with a laser headlight and controls for a helmet-integrated head-up display. The result could make riding safer if these developments ever come to market.

Future envisioned by BMW :
Park By Waving
Bumper Detect
Light & Charge
i8 Mirrorless - 3 cameras Stitched Into One Smart Display
i3 Extended Rearview Mirror

Chevrolet : Bolt EV Debut (First auto brand to work with Facebook to debut a vehicle using Facebook Live)

Faraday Future : 1000-hp EV concept FFZERO1.

Ford : Showcased a new partnership with Amazon that will help keep vehicles connected to their smart homes of the future. Ford's third-generation SYNC connectivity system will connect with Amazon's Echo voice-recognition system.

Ford also announced a push to develop a drone-to-vehicle communication system that would potentially assist the United Nations in assessing damage in emergency zones. Drones would deploy from the bed of F150 pickups, survey damaged areas and communicate real-time information to the SNYC connected system. Future applications could include agriculture, forestry, bridge inspection and other work, according to the company.
