CES 2021 Automotive Add-ons

The Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES, features every aspect of the tech sector. Typically, CES has an in-person conference, but this year, COVID-19 restrictions meant CES “showcased companies including manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems” only online with an all-digital experience.

Many of our favorite add-on manufacturers presented products at CES.  We reviewed the product categories and pulled our favorite automotive add-ons to share with you.


Pioneer focused on the next generation of mobility at CES 2021.  There is a long-term company strategy to providing mobility solutions that make “everyday mobility smarter, safer, and more comfortable” according to the Pioneer CES 2021 microsite.  Among the many different automotive technologies discussed was “radar and lidar” for ADAS applications and Pioneer’s approach to “navigation, audio, and smartphone integration” with their Pioneer Cabin UX Solution.  Visit the Pioneer CES 2021 microsite to learn more.

Gentex Corporation

Gentex brought their mirror based products to CES 2021.  We are excited to see the “Gentex Full Display Mirror (FDM®), the industry’s first hybrid intelligent rear-vision system that uses a custom camera and mirror-integrated video display to optimize a vehicle’s rearward view.”  Much like cellular phone cameras continue to innovate with more cameras, Gentex is using “three cameras to provide comprehensive views of the sides and rear of the vehicle.”  Building on the trend of car cams, Gentex showed a mirror-integrated DVR with no wires, suction cups or dangling power cords.  See images and video on the Gentex Corporation’s CES 2021 microsite.
