Last week on the NMA Auto Tech Watch blog, I showcased all the interesting products coming out of the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) with regards to auto tech. This week, more articles are coming your way plus another load of announcements, interviews, etc. coming out of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show or the official title North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) which closes today, January 20, 2019. This will be the last year that NAIAS takes place on the heels of CES. Detroit plans to reboot the NAIAS in June 2020 due to the competition with CES and probably the always frigid winter weather that everyone has to cope with in January in Detroit.
Anyhoo…here are some of the articles we were able to find from both events. Enjoy!
