Electric vehicle (EV) chargers with MSI logos might become a thing in 2024, as part of the brand's bid to become as well-known for automotive or industrial smart tech as it is for gaming laptops. Some of the MSI tech for cars support standards including NACS, whereas others employ AI to enhance driver or charge point operator (CPO) safety.

MSI has successfully opened its exhibition of personal electronics at the Venetian expo center; however, the OEM has another CES 2024 installation at Westgate Las Vegas for its less PC-related smart tech. It includes the brand's new AI DVR, a Driver Monitoring System intended to prevent dangerous driving by checking for potentially hazardous events, signs of fatigue included, in real time.

The MSI Al Box does more or less the same thing for objects, people and other vehicles included, in order to help prevent accidents. The Westgate show also previews the OEM's latest MS-C903 and MS-C902 Ultra-Thin Smart Industrial Computers with Tiger Lake-UP3 and Alder Lake-P U-series processors respectively for use-cases and settings such as smart billboards and industrial AIoT hubs.

However, attendees just might be most interested in the new EV chargers that could go best with one's new Raider GE78 laptop. The Premium or AI variants of the new Eco Series range might best fit that description, equipped with app, cloud, RFID and QR code support to allow access to NACS, US Type 1 SAE J1772 or European Type 2 IEC-62196 charging.

Those specs are facilitated by 7-inch displays and augmented by features such as an AI license plate scanner. Alternatively, they are joined by Eco Life and Eco Premium chargers at CES 2024, which also have MSI's Energy Management Systems (EMS), although their 3-phase output is capped at 22 kilowatts (kW).

All in all, the year of possibly seeing many more MSI logos on smart tech outside the gaming abode might have begun.
