NEXYAD Automotive & Transportation Newsletter #36, January 19th, 2022
We are just coming back from CES Las Vegas. This CES was very interesting:
It was however by far the best CES for NEXYAD since 2016.
Main trend at CES : the arrival of new car OEMs with electric vehicle, e.g. FISKER and VINFAST.
Last but not least, we had the opportunity to have a presention of VSI Labs demo cars.
They seem to be a key partner for NEXYAD on the American market, to shocase our cognitive AI technology solving 3 main issues : Safety Score, Safety Coach, Preventive ACC / AD.
For NEXYAD, it should be the start of our big adventure in the USA.

Henrik Fisker has presented himself the zero emission SUV Ocean at CES in Las vegas. The Fisker Ocean features the SolarSky, a large solar roof. Thus, the sun’s rays are collected and generate energy which powers the vehicle’s electric motor. The cabin features premium upholstery, floor mats and details made from recycled plastic bottles, reclaimed rubber scrap, used t-shirts and discarded fishing nets from the ocean.

VinFast is a new OEM that comes to us from Vietnam. Coming from Vingroup in Hanoi, the brand did not hesitate to hire experienced executives from, for example, GM, Pininfarina, and build partnerships with BMW, Magna Steyr, Siemens or Bosch. They presented three new models at CES, and they cover all segments from A to E. The electric SUV brand will soon be marketed in Europe and North America.

VSI Labs drove from Minneapolis Minnesota to Las Vegas (more than 1650 miles !) with their technological jewels. These two labcars are simply amazing, they embark the best of hardware, software and connectivity systems for research and demonstration purposes in the fields of Road safety, ADAS and Autonomous Driving. VSI organizes tours across the United States on the occasion of major events such as ADAS & Autonomous Technology Expo at San Jose (Ca) next march. They are certainly our best next partners in the US.
Nexyad is still very interested by computer vision technologies as we have now distributor in France that integrates our vision algorithmes into valuable product for railway safety: OTN. We found some companies that provide smart dashcams like Movon or Nextbase or Stonkam from Hong Kong, which offers a whole range of artificial vision products such as this rear-view camera systems with image reproduction on interior screens.
At last, this curiosity with an autonomous Indy racing car. We can see here a specimen of these single-seater or no-seater with electronics and artificial intelligence in place of the human pilot. CES organized a competition, the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC), on the Las Vegas racetrack with autonomous cars that can reach 175 mph.
