The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) drives nearly one million attendees to the Motor City yearly. This year will be one of the biggest yet with 750 different cars and trucks on display from nearly 50 exhibitors. Innovation and technology top the list of goals for the automakers as they appeal to global and local markets. Beyond the sleek exteriors and welcoming interiors that entice car buyers, the auto show is an opportunity for collaboration and networking among industry professionals.
With an elaborate floor plan that resembles a puzzle, some industry heavyweights occupy more floor space than others. Ford Motor Company’s 49,106 square feet shows they’re ready to “Go Further” with their Autonomous Vehicle Development. This next level in transportation features cameras and laser projectors that operate the vehicle without any human interaction. Its release is planned for 2021.
