There's no question cutting-edge gadgets and awe-inspiring mobile tech rules at CES, but at this year's trade show, connected cars got a lot of buzz.

The GO-NV Summit had the eyes and ears of nearly 300 international transportation industry executives who hit up the conference to learn about technology advancements transforming the transportation industry locally, nationally and internationally. This year, it focused on connected and autonomous vehicles and was hosted by the Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility and its partners.

Viva Las Vegas

And since Sin City housed the summit, the speakers paid homage to Elvis Presley by making "A little less conversation, a little more action, please," its theme -- focusing on current actions for bringing the emerging technology of advanced mobility closer to reality and noting specific accomplishments and successful public/private partnerships that have emerged in recent years.

According to the general manager of the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada , Tina Quigley, Nevada was the ideal place for an automotive conference bringing together transportation leaders from around the globe to discuss the future of autonomous and connected technology.

"In Nevada, transportation leaders have long valued collaboration and believe the best solutions are derived from partnerships that can further advance transportation technology to alleviate congestion, increase safety standards and stimulate the economy," said Quigley.

As a result, she went on to say, the state is leading the way to a more connected future by embracing and promoting advanced connectivity technology.

Moving Forward

The gathering gave industry execs a leg up in understanding what transportation companies and their partners are doing to advance connected vehicle technology, the best practices for building smart and connected communities, and how far autonomous cars still need to go before becoming a viable mode of consumer transportation.

Jay Rogers, CEO of Local Motors, explained how his company is applying innovative approaches such as 3-D printing to advance vehicle safety, sustainability and intelligence; whereas Dr. Mark Rosekind, administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration , discussed what the federal government is doing to encourage transportation technology, pointing to recent policies, regulations and collaborations.

During the summit, Nevada CAM signed a cooperative Letter of Intent with the GENIVI Alliance, an inclusive, collaborative development community of car makers and their suppliers that's driving adoption of open source in-vehicle software and open technology for the connected car. The partnership intends to bring advanced connected vehicle technology to Las Vegas to help increase awareness for pedestrian safety and improve traffic woes.

Sure, the standout features of CES will always be stuff like the Starship delivery robot and the swankiest typewriter ever, but connected car talk may be making strides in the cool category as well.
