SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Apr.11, 2017 – Among the numerous leading-edge technologies showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 for the automotive industry, the stand-out concepts were digital speech assistance, user-based feature personalization, data monetization channels, and tier 1 suppliers’ provision of end-to-end solutions. The most dominant technology was artificial intelligence (AI), which has found particular application in autonomous driving and contextual connected services.
Frost & Sullivan insight on CES 2017 Automotive and Transportation Highlights focuses on key announcements by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), tier-1 suppliers, as well as semiconductor and technology companies at the Consumer Electronics Show. It has categorized the announcements by electrification, connected services, infotainment/human machine interface (HMI) and automated driving.

“Partnerships have played a vital role in demonstrating automated driving concepts; a case in point is NIVDIA’s partnership with Mercedes-Benz, Audi, ZF and HERE,” said Frost & Sullivan Mobility Research Analyst Meena Subramanian. “Other high-profile applications of AI in autonomous driving include the Honda Automated Network Assistant in Honda’s NeuV vehicle and Yui’s AI platform in the Toyota Concept-i vehicle.”
AI is being used in digital assistants like Alexa to offer futuristic features such as speech infusion. Other important trends include:
- The rising use of biometrics and facial recognition in user ID and personalization across vehicles
- Startups’ offer of marketplace connection to help OEMs monetize data
- Development of a service/solution business by suppliers like Continental
“While many technologies have progressed rapidly toward commercial application, Android N still needs to be fine-tuned before it can be used by OEMs in production,” noted Subramanian. “OEMs are moving away from CarPlay and Android Auto infotainment systems, and have formed a consortium to implement open-source infotainment systems.”
