The automaker hopes to lead the industry with innovative future car technology at CES, where fourth industrial revolution technology such as autonomous driving and artificial intelligence can easily be found.

The autonomous driving infotainment system includes a windshield that will evolve into a whole panel of displays in the future. To ensure driving is still safe, windshields will remain transparent when cars are being driven manually, but when the vehicle is driving itself the windshield will become a dark display panel used to view everything from navigation updates to movies.
