A Smart Way
to Get Around Vegas

 L 

ogistics are crucial at CES to avoid transportation challenges. To accomplish this, TransitScreen
helped transform CES 2017 into a smart city,
bringing transportation choices together in real time
to help innovators and dealmakers get around the show.

We worked with show transportation coordinator Rhode
Planning & Management Solutions and CES show management to provide CES attendees with live wait times for the
most important options available to them: shuttles, taxis and
monorail. We also added live information about local public
and private transportation, like buses, to round it out.
Attendees can access this information on any mobile device
using our product, TransitScreen GO. We also made it accessible using Physical Web beacons provided by our partners at

behavior, which is why we also put a screen
at the transportation information booth.
We have learned the easier it is for people to access this information, the better.
That's why we're ramped up for 2018,
with five screens set up at key show locations, and direct integration into the CES
app. This information is available when
people are making their decisions at exit
points before they get stuck at a bus stop
or a taxi line. CES attendees will find
TransitScreen at the exits of the Las
Vegas Convention Center's Grand Lobby
and South Hall 1, the Venetian exit closest to the shuttles, and the Sands Expo
near the Venetian Ballroom.
We believe smart cities are smart because
their citizens are more informed and can
achieve a higher quality of life. When transit users have real-time information, they
spend less time waiting and more time
doing what matters to them - for the
people at CES, that means innovating,
creating and building new technology.

Aira, IEA's Startup winner combines artificial
intelligence and augmented reality with human
interaction to enable the blind to access information on demand. The company uses camera-equipped smart glasses that allow people
with vision loss to connect to a network of certified agents for assistance that provide the
wearer with information on navigating streets
to shopping and workplace tasks. "Dashboard
agents can see whatever the blind person sees
in real time in less than half a second," Aira
CEO Suman Kanuganti said. "It's pretty amazing how our explorers are taking this technology and discovering a multitude of ways to
incorporate it into their daily lives."

Tom DeVesto
IEA's Small Business
Executive

Patrick Sherwin
CEO and Founder

Tom DeVesto, IEA's Small Business Executive
has been designing CE brands known for their
outstanding sound quality and launching innovative products at Advent, Kloss Video, Cambridge
SoundWorks and Tivoli Audio for 40 years.
In 2016, he founded Como Audio. He also introduced the concept of selling electronics to
consumers on a website called hifi.com -
a frontrunner to Amazon. He said, "I hope that
people start demanding higher quality resolution
and higher quality music reproduction because
it sounds different - it sounds much better."
GoSun, IEA's Small Business winner developed
a patented technology that cooks a meal in
minutes within its solar-powered, fuel-free stove.
GoSun is bringing its technology to emerging markets to address issues in health, sustainability
and energy poverty. Currently GoSun is releasing
hyper-efficient electric-hybrid cooking solutions.
CEO and Founder Patrick Sherwin said, "It's hard
to believe that just five years ago I was prototyping
these products in a garage and now we have
15,000 customers in more than 60 countries."
