LAS VEGAS, NV, USA - The race is on to CES Asia 2017 where vehicle technology will be out in full force at Asia’s premier tech event, including the latest from four major auto manufacturers – Honda, Hyundai, NEVS and Volvo – with more to be announced soon. New vehicle technology aims to make drivers and passengers safer, smarter and more connected than ever. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, licensee for the World Trade Center Las Vegas, and co-produced by Shanghai Intex, CES Asia 2017 will take place June 7-9, 2017, in Shanghai, China at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).

“Self-driving technologies and connected car capabilities are changing our world - from thousands of lives being saved on the roads each year, increased mobility and reductions in traffic and resulting carbon emissions to ride sharing options and a new world of device-to-device communication for real-time sharing of information between vehicles, roadside infrastructure and pedestrian devices,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Cars have never been smarter, roads have never been safer and the possibilities for this not-so-distant future will be on display at CES Asia 2017.”

Major vehicle technology companies will be on hand at CES Asia showcasing the full supply chain of vehicle tech, including Baidu, Continental, NavInfo, OnStar/GM, Pioneer and Volvo. Featured automotive technology will be on display both on the show floor and in outdoor exhibit space.

According to CTA research, factory-installed technologies, from entertainment systems to driver-assist features, make up an estimated 50 percent of the collective value in new vehicles, up from about 25 percent just 10 years ago.

More than 240 notable companies are already slated to exhibit, including 3M, Audio-Technica, Continental, Digital China, DJI, Fossil/Misfit, Garmin, Gibson Brands, Haier, Harman, Huawei, Konka Group, LeEco, Monster, Onkyo, OtterBox, PPTV, Scosche, Suning, UPS, USPS, Valeo, Voxx, Wacom and Yuneec. Ultimately, CES Asia 2017 is expected to draw more than 30,000 attendees and more than 1,100 global media to cover some 450 exhibiting companies showcasing innovation across 19 product categories, including major growth areas such as drones, the Internet of Things (IoT) and virtual reality.
