While there were a lot of smart tablets, watches and garments that attracted attention at CES 2015, powered by the NVIDIA Drive CX platform, NVIDIA is proposing that cars will be come a powerful hub for hyper-connectivity. The NVIDIA Drive CX is a chipset that's specifically tailored towards autonomous car technology. Envisioning radars and sensors being replaced by cameras in the future, this smart car system would be able to easily identify obstacles and other motorists when navigating the roads.

On the inside of the futuristic car envisioned by NVIDIA, there's a digital dashboard system that plays of the brand's ability to bring quality graphics to the table, mimicking the way materials like bamboo and carbon fiber look and reflect light in the real world with a high degree of precision. Thanks to the powerful Tegra X1 processor, NVIDIA claims that this would all be possible.
