Amidst CML’s customer meetings, four thousand exhibitors and one hundred and eighty thousand attendees, we reviewed the most popular technology areas of CES, Las Vegas. There were three key product groups attracting the most viewers and interest, and each had increased their occupied floor space significantly since last year.
Drones were on display from twenty six exhibitors with applications ranging from sports coverage to search and rescue. The US market for drones is expected to double this year.
Augmented reality joined virtual reality to double its exhibition size since 2016. Products ranged from glasses to headsets and crash helmets, offering experiences as varied as gaming, shopping and foreign travel.
Nearly one hundred and fifty exhibitors and nine car manufacturers populated the twenty thousand square metres assigned to vehicle technology. Overriding themes were Artificial Intelligence (AI) and autonomy with a number of concept self-driving cars.
CML welcomes the significant investment in these next generation products as they are key target applications for our smart metal platform technology. We look forward to sharing news of our latest projects and partners soon.
