At CES 2019, Panasonic reiterates Smart City focus

January 8, 2019

Cameras and turntables aside, at CES 2019, Panasonic Corporation is showcasing ideas for intelligently integrating physical products with new digital platforms powered by human insight technologies.

Key to this is Connected Mobility, with the brand showcasing an environmentally conscious, safe and comfortable lifestyle by supporting the mobility of people and things and proposing new ways of utilizing mobility. On their stand, the 48v ePowertrain & SPACe_C was on display, an upgraded version of the 48v ePowertrain Platform first introduced in CES 2018.

Also featured is the conceptual model of the SPACe_C (for Sharing Panasonic Autonomous Connected e-Mobility) which is comprised of a powertrain base and a detachable cabin on top.  The SPACe_C is designed to closely connect people with products and services, support people’s lives, propose new applications for small mobility vehicles in tourist and urban areas, and revitalize communities.

Automotive Cybersecurity – Panasonic is introducing a security system that can significantly reduce costs of identifying and fixing vulnerabilities by combining an AI-assisted cyber-attack detection specifically developed for automotive applications.

Four four zones, namely Connected Mobility, Intelligent Living Spaces, Immersive Experiences, and Human Insights Technology, highlight how Panasonic’s proprietary technologies are merging the physical and digital, the real and the virtual worlds to create better experiences for customers.

In addition to the main booth at the LVCC, Panasonic also has the Lumix division prominently showcased, as also a Technics booth with CD Players, Headphones and a Direct Drive Turntable System.

Panasonic is located at Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), Central Hall (#12908)
