CES 2022: Keolis reviews the latest innovations in the mobility sector

An in-person discovery of global mobility trends

Following the all-digital CES in 2021, the 2022 show reopened its doors to some 40,000 participants, including 30% international visitors, 30% regulars and 2,300 exhibitors. Despite a smaller attendance than the 2021 edition (which welcomed 172,000 visitors), the event restored the in-person experience and gave visitors a sneak peek at many different innovations. Alongside other major transportation players, Keolis explored all the latest technology innovations and new uses in mobility.

Passenger experience, AI, safety: innovations carve out their niche

CES 2022 revealed a significant acceleration of the mobility trends observed during the previous editions of the show. First, a quality user experience is the watchword in every sector: especially in urban mobility, vehicles are becoming new sites of socialization, prioritizing comfort and entertainment before, during and after the mobility experience.

Artificial intelligence also rose to the forefront of the scene: including voice and visual analysis, cybersecurity and threat detection to boost the security of transportation. In the robotics field, AMECA, the world’s most realistic smart humanoid, shocked everyone in attendance: its ability to reproduce human facial expressions is perfectly suited to keeping its human counterparts engaged and entertained. Originally intended for fairs and theme parks, its scope of use may be extended to support customer relationships.

Finally, this edition of CES showcased significant advances in driver assistance solutions, which have become more efficient and less costly. This is notably the case with LiDAR sensors, which became an object of stiff competition for innovation at the show. These laser radar systems offer detection and perception features that can improve the safety of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). These cutting-edge laser radars, notably seen as essential sensors for autonomous vehicles, are especially interesting for Keolis, which is one of the leaders in the autonomous vehicle market with more than 94,000 kilometers traveled by autonomous vehicles across 35 sites around the world by the end of 2019. LiDAR sensors are expected to play a major role in improving the efficiency of smart transportation and user protection systems, including speed monitoring and control, vehicle profiling and navigating crosswalks.
