A number of Israeli startups, including automotive 4D imaging startup Arbe Robotics and cutting-edge water generator Watergen, are also taking part in the conference as featured exhibitors or as part of other delegations.
Israeli startup UVeye, which develops smart vehicle inspection systems, said it would unveil an industry-leading system that can identify the smallest exterior defects on any vehicle within seconds, at the upcoming event.
Over 175,000 people are expected to attend the conference this year which will feature 4,500 exhibitors and more than 1,100 speakers on stage including Ivanka Trump.
“Companies across every major industry are using technology to transform their businesses, and CES 2020 will be the global stage for the latest innovation across all sectors,” said Karen Chupka, EVP, CES, in a statement. “The show will represent all facets of global business where attendees can expect the unexpected.”
