PYMNTS: In-Car Voice Makes Itself Heard at CES


Before CES even opened to the industry, in-car voice technology was making itself heard. On Monday (Jan. 3), the first of two media days preceding the opening of the show, connected mobility supplier Cerence received an award for its in-car voice assistant, Mercedes-Benz released details about two voice technologies featured on its new prototype electric car and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) projected that auto tech will grow 7% in 2022.

These companies are among more than 200 from the transportation and vehicle technology industry — a record number for the event — represented at this year’s edition of the annual tech event. A total of 2,200 companies are taking part in person or in the event’s digital venues.
