For example, the Afeela joint venture between Honda and Sony brought its car on stage remotely, driven using a PlayStation handset. In other ways it is a more realistic indicator of where the technology is heading, as our show report details on pages 94-101. Provizio demonstrated its 4D-imaging radar in the car park, and we detail the tech in Platform One on page 10. At the same time, Nvidia very clearly showed the progression of the central controller. Chinese car manufacturers such as Zeekr and Xiaomi (perhaps better known for its smartphones) are already using two of the latest Orin chips, while Li Auto will more than double the machine-learning performance for automated driving with Thor, one of Nvidia’s next-generation chips. But these are power-hungry devices, and Ambarella was showing the same capabilities with dramatically less power, as we highlight on page 8. This is hard to demonstrate underwater, so we are also covering an AUV from uWare on page 24, several more UUVs on page 56, and the IMU technologies being used across many of these platforms, both on the ground and in the air, in our Focus on page 76.
