Main Exhibits

Connected Zone

The newest version of the EMIRAI4 * (2019) smart-mobility concept car features next-generation driving-assistance technologies, advanced human-machine interface (HMI) technologies and other Mitsubishi Electric technologies for vehicle electrification, autonomous driving and network connection. During CES 2019, Mitsubishi Electrics will present two new technologies in the EMIRAI4 with its realistic texture expression technology, called Real Texture ® and ground-illuminating indicator technology. The Real Texture LED dashboard display realistically expresses the appearance of metallic-like surfaces by adjusting gloss and shadow according to the person’s viewing angle. Ground-illuminating indicators for turning, door-opening, etc. project animated illuminations on road surfaces around the vehicle to provide highly intuitive, easy-to-see warnings about intended movements for enhanced road safety, even in bad weather including snow. A demonstration car for the North America market will feature a multi-display system and a drone-assisted vacant-parking-search system. Sample applications of advanced location services that are being studied jointly ** by HERE Technologies and Mitsubishi Electric will also be on display.
