What are the Best of Sensors Expo Awards?

The awards focus on applications and innovations in the world of sensors. These prestigious awards were presented by the Executive Editor of Sensors, Mat Dirjish, at Sensors Expo & Conference on Wednesday, June 10th. The 2016 Awards process will be announced in the Spring of 2016. 

Awards were presented in the following categories:

  • Innovation Award: This award seeks to recognize advances in sensor and sensor-related technologies, either in the form of novel technologies or as significant improvements in existing technologies. Nominated technologies should meet the requirement for distinctiveness, potential impact, and application.
  • Application Award: This award is for sensor applications, whether commercial or experimental. The goal is to recognize sensor use in the wider world. Nominated applications should use sensors, must be distinctive, must have the potential to change the way people work, and must serve a real need.

What are the Engineering Excellence Awards?
These awards focus on excellence among engineers in the below categories. Sensors recognized the winners on Tuesday, June 9th during the Kick-Off Party at the Hyatt Long Beach.

  • Engineers of the Year Award: Intended to recognize engineering teams working within the sensor industry. Winners must have provided an outstanding contribution to the sensors industry, either through the development of sensor technology or by its application to address real-world problems.
  • Rising Star Award: Intended to recognize a young engineer who is active within the sensors industry and has already contributed to advancing sensor technology or sensor applications.

Nomination and Review Process
The online nomination forms will provide initial qualifying information on each prospective nominee. The Executive Editor of Sensors will then review all nominations and contact nominees to secure more in-depth details as necessary. Finally, the Executive Editor will present the awards on-site at Sensors Expo & Conference to the winners. Stay tuned for information on the 2016 Awards.
