LAS VEGAS — This year's CES event officially opened to the public on Tuesday, Jan. 7. Taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, as well as various venues all over the city, CES attracts people from across the globe. 

While previously known more for consumer electronics, in recent years the event has attracted a large number of vehicle manufacturers, as well as suppliers of electrification services, advanced driver safety technologies and autonomous driving systems. 

While many displays are to attract attention and generate discussion, CES also provides a real-world glimpse into how our lives will change in the coming years.
