(Our Auto Expert) – Flying Cars and Rechargeable Robots. The future has arrived. At least that’s what anyone who attended this year’s CES in Las Vegas thinks.
A flying car of sorts from Stellantis, the parent company of Jeep, Ram, Dodge and Chrysler, has announced that it is partnering with Archer to take to the skies with a new electric vertical take-off and landing flying vehicle. I don’t know yet when it will be available for purchase.
Mercedes has announced that it is the first company in the United States to be approved for autonomous driving up to Level 3, where the driver does not have to pay attention to the road. Starting in Nevada, you can watch a movie as your new Mercedes drives to your destination. All you have to do is enjoy the ride. California and other states will soon follow suit to authorize the sale of self-driving cars.
Jeep will become an autonomous adventure brand. Besides being electric, the new Jeep can autonomously meet you eventually wherever you go after a hike.
Peugeot has announced Hyper Square, a video game controller that replaces the steering wheel. It’s a tablet-like control center used with touch tap and swipe motion, with no stems, knobs, or buttons.
The Ram 150 Revolution was one of the show’s biggest attractions. 100 features, but some key features include three rows of adjustable seats. A flank with tunnels down the entire vehicle, an 18ft long pipe or he can carry a 2×4, plus he can add two more for free if fitted with a bed extender. and Crescendo, a power ram robot charger. A recharger will come out to find the ram and charge it from below. This Roomba-like charger is fully robotic and automated.
CES is more than just technology. It’s also about our future as a race and how it can solve our biggest problems and change the world.
