“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. 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,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA.

Major vehicle technology companies will be on hand at CES Asia showcasing the full supply chain of vehicle tech, including Baidu, Continental, NavInfo, Pioneer and Volvo.
