2015 CES Hotspots: IoT, robots and ultra-hi def TV

SAN FRANCISCO — Analysts and veterans of the International CES expect to see plenty of 4K ultra-high-definition televisions, new smartwatch uses, and a large section of the show floor dedicated to robotics. Of course, the silicon behind these technologies and more also will be on display.

Those attending next week should get ready for a little more walking than usual. The Consumer Electronics Association, the host of CES, has “optimized three areas in the CES layout, and they've added the Palazzo [Hotel Casino] to the Sands, Venetian, and Las Vegas Convention Center,” Tim Bajarin, president of the technology consulting firm Creative Strategies, told EE Times. “They have a lot of specialty zones… Last year, they had health and fitness. This year, we will have one on robotics.”

As it was at the 2014 show, the health and fitness section of the show floor likely will be bustling. Analysts also expect increasing discussion around standards for the Internet of Things.
