Volkswagen, DoorBird and LG execs open doors at CES 2016 with their keynote speech

Volkswagen CEO Dr. Herbert Diess, DoorBird CEO Sascha Keller and Richard Choi from LG helped to open CES 2016 in Las Vegas on January 5 with their keynote speech. The keynote included the presentation of the new VW electric car which VW uses to demonstrate the connection between the IoT and the automotive world.

Imagine you’re in your car on your way home and you’re expecting friends to come over to watch a soccer game, but you’re running late. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could open the door for your friends comfortably from the car while you’re still on the road? The union of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the automotive world will make  such scenarios reality in the future.ph

At this year’s opening show of CES in Las Vegas Volkswagen CEO Dr. Herbert Diess invited DoorBird CEO Sascha Keller as guest speaker and representative of the Internet of Things. In front of 2000 invited guests, the two CEO’s and Richard Choi from LG talked about their plans and visions for cars and the synergy between the Internet of Things and the automotive world.

In the course of the presentation of VW’s newest electric car Dr. Herbert Diess welcomed Sascha Keller on the stage of the Chelsea theater at the Cosmopolitan hotel. Sascha Keller was  invited to demonstrate the concept of the “connected car” with the help of the intelligent video door station DoorBird.

dbAlready since 2010  the successful Berlin based Startup with its cloud based video door station has implemented the idea of being  ‘at home’ when you are far away. In case the soccer friends show up a little earlier you can now comfortably open the door via smartphone from anywhere. And now you can open the door safely and conveniently from the car without taking the smartphone out of your pocket. The integration of DoorBird with Volkswagen’s infotainment platform makes this possible. “The connected home starts at the front door. And now, together with Volkswagen and DoorBird, the connected car and the connected home is already reality”, said Sascha Keller.
