CES 2023 Day One: Sustainable and Intelligent Solutions Tech To Address Global Challenges


The Coresight Research team is attending CES (formerly the Consumer Electronics Show), hosted by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) in Las Vegas from January 3, 2023, with the exhibits running during January 5–8, 2023. The event brings together technology vendors, innovators, retailers and people from around the world to get an early look at key consumer electronics trends in the new year. The scope of CES has expanded in recent years beyond electronic gadgets to encompass new areas such as healthcare, wearable devices and mobility. This year, the show has a strong metaverse focus.

In this report, we present insights from the first day of the event proper on January 5, 2023. 

CES 2023 Day One: Coresight Research Insights

1. CTA Discusses Pressing Challenges for Tech To Tackle

Kicking off the first official day of CES 2023, Gary Shapiro, President and CEO of CTA, outlined major global issues that tech is tackling, including sustainability, food security, accessibility and security. He highlighted that many of the featured technology solutions at CES—which features over 200 conference sessions and more than 1,000 startups this year—work toward addressing these issues, spanning digital health, mobility, food tech, smart home, transportation and mobility, and more.

Shapiro touched on tech policy, arguing that government policies need to support growth, have low barriers to entry, set ground rules and foster competition. He asserted that the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) has shifted away from protecting the consumer toward protecting existing competitors, which is stifling innovation. 

2. John Deere Presents Sustainable Ag-Tech Solutions

John May, Chairman and CEO of agricultural equipment manufacturer John Deere, spoke about the company’s focus on sustainable and intelligent ag-tech (agricultural technology) to address farmers’ needs. Farmers currently face a host of global challenges, including unpredictable weather accelerated by climate change and labor shortages. John Deere, which was founded 186 years ago, is more focused on tech intelligence and sustainability than ever before, May said. 

On February 22, 2021, the company announced a set of measurable goals to achieve economic value, productivity and sustainability for its customers. Last year at CES, John Deere introduced the world’s first autonomous tractor, equipped with sensors and computer vision, which is already deployed on farms today. Now, the company says it is focused on helping farmers execute more efficiently and sustainably.

Deanna Kovar, VP of Production and Precision Ag Production Systems at John Deere, discussed several solutions leveraging AI (artificial intelligence) and computer vision to relieve challenges facing farmers. For example, John Deere’s technology enables farmers to create digital twins of farms, which can assist with decision making, including how to plant seeds, what to plant next or what to plant this year. Kovar stated that the company is using new sensor and robotic tech to fertilize plants once they are placed in the ground. The precision of the robots reduces the amount of starter fertilizer needed by 60% while maintaining an efficient speed.

Julian Sanchez, Director of Emerging Technology at John Deere, presented several of the company’s latest innovations, including See & Spray, which was introduced in March 2022. See & Spray uses computer vision and machine learning to precisely detect weeds and apply herbicide, which can reduce herbicide use by up to two-thirds, according to John Deere. 

3. Stellantis Unveils New Electric, Sustainable Vehicles

Carlos Tavares, CEO of automotive manufacturing corporation Stellantis, kicked off the Stellantis keynote by providing attendees with updates on the company’s sustainability goals and new business units. Its “Dare Forward 2030” plan, which was first presented in March 2022, is guided by the goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2038, Tavares emphasized. In addition, Tavares shared that Stellantis is launching three new tech stacks in 2024, which will enable the company to harness data more easily and deliver customers the “simple yet revolutionary” tech that they desire. Tavares announced a new business unit, Mobilisights, which will serve as the data service business arm of Stellantis.

Linda Jackson, CEO of Stellantis brand Peugeot, unveiled Peugeot’s Hypersquare tablet-like control center, which is set to launch in 2026. Hypersquare is controlled by fingers and voice assistant and does not have any buttons or knobs. 

Jackson also revealed the new Peugeot Inception concept, a sleek car with a “feline future” design that features upgraded living and social space, intelligent storage and integration of the Hypersquare device. Jackson highlighted the sustainable aspects of this design, including no alloy or chrome adornment and efficient electric power.
