LAS VEGAS - The smartphones and other small machines that used to dominate the annual CES gadget show have been overshadowed in recent years by bigger mobile devices: namely, automobiles. Auto companies typically save more practical announcements about new cars, trucks and SUVs for the upcoming Detroit auto show. But major automakers like Toyota, Kia, Hyundai and Ford have a noticeable presence at this week's tech showcase in Las Vegas. CES is a chance for automakers and suppliers of automotive parts and software to display their wilder and far-out ideas. Among the highlights Monday: Toyota says it's developing self-driving minibuses that can serve as bite-sized stores.
