Article by Christian A., on January 7, 2011

At the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the auto industry was present as its new products and technologies will be shown off and two of these keynote addresses will come from this industry as well. General Motors Co. will showcase its two-seat concept, the Electric Networked-Vehicle, or EN-V.

This won’t be the first time that GM will make an appearance at the show. Former CEO Rick Wagoner, a 2008 keynote speaker, introduced a concept car, the plug-in hybrid Cadillac Provoq.

And in 2007, Ford Motor Co. and partner Microsoft Corp. introduced the Sync voice-activated communications and entertainment system in the show. Since then, Ford and its partners have featured their technological advances in this show.

Ford CEO Alan Mulally will give a keynote address on Friday, his third consecutive CES appearance. On Thursday, Audi CEO Rupert Stadler is scheduled to deliver a keynote address. A significant part of this show is the technology related to electric cars.

On Friday, there will be a panel discussion titled: "A Computer on Wheels: Meet the Electric Car." Scheduled on Thursday is SAE International's annual CES session, which focuses on connected car technology.

On Friday, the panel will discuss driver distraction where David Strickland, administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is one of the panel members. [via autonews - sub. required]
