This time’s CES tech show was a little different. Concerned about infectious disease, most tech players in Washington have not made an annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas, where the world’s largest electronics manufacturers usually start new goods.
That has n’t stopped numerous Northwest businesses from making a splash by making the trip. Among them is Bellevue- grounded truck manufacturer PACCAR, which introduced another zero- discharges vehicle offered under its Kenworth brand.
The truck, the Kenworth T680E, has an estimated range of 150 country miles and is designed for indigenous work. It’ll be available as a tractor or box truck. According to PACCAR, it can be completely charged in about three hours.
“Kenworth is at the forefront of zero emissions solutions,” said Kevin Bayney, Managing Director of Kenworth and Vice President of PACCAR. The truck, he continued,”offers our guests a truly zero emigrations result that will help them meet their own green program pretensions.”
The T680E is the 3rd and bigest electric vehicle put forward by Kenworth. The company began taking orders for three of last time and has recorded over 50 orders so far. PACCAR also build charging terminus for electric vehicles.
The Spokesperson- Review reported that at CES, Spokane- grounded medical device incipiency Parrots has demonstrated”Polly”, an AI parrot that helps people with disabilities communicate and live singly.
The device can be placed on a wheelchair or bedside, and provides a 360-degree view for users when paired with a laptop or tablet. The device tracks eye movements to prognosticate druggies’ requirements-it can see orange juice on the table during breakfast and when druggies want a drink
Named Entrepreneur of the Year by the Association of Washington Businesses in 2021, Parrots shared space with six other Washington-based companies at CES in a booth hosted by the State Department of Commerce. Seattle startups include: iUNU, manufacturer of environmental sensors; KIRIO, Home Control Software Manufacturer; Food delivery technology developer Minnow Technologies; And Picnic, a food automation company. On Tuesday, Bictory-based video technology maker Pictory.ai, which received $ 2.1 million in support from FUSE, Voyager Capital and several angel investors, also took to the Commerce Department booth.
“ Short videotape is arising as the assiduity standard for numerous business use cases, especially in marketing and social media,” said Kellan Carter, general mate of capital establishment FUSE.
The venture includes Seattle Seahawks star linebacker Bobby Wagner on the roster of partners. “Pictor is led by a world- class platoon who have formerly created and successfully developed software companies.”
Major Washington tech players also take part in CES, albeit virtually. Microsoft introduced a new computer chipset designed for stoked reality spectacles, but Chinese electronics maker TCL Technology blazoned that Bellevue- grounded T-Mobile was one of the first US companies to offer its phones at a lower price. Awards latterly this time.
Amazon has promoted cloud computing offers on Amazon Web Services and changes to its consumer products line – Fire TV is coming to cars, ring systems will soon detect break-ins and fire. Alexa orbit on NASA’s first Artemis mission, lunar orbit, is expected to fly unmanned later this year.
In 2021, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and French Group PSA merger announced a broad partnership between multinational carmaker Amazon and Stellantis. Stellantis brands involve Dodge, Jeep and Peugeot, as well as Fiat and Chrysler.
