The embedded award is presented for especially innovative products and developments in the categories hardware, software and tools. For the first time this year, prizes will also go to submissions in the new categories embedded vision and start-ups. For the 15th time in succession, a jury of industry experts will reward outstanding development achievements on the first day of the fair, which this year falls on 26 February. The coveted awards will be presented as part of the international press tour.

There are only a few days and hours left until this year’s winners and their cutting-edge ideas and developments will be announced. A total of 15 companies have been nominated in the established categories hardware, software and tools as well as the categories embedded vision and start-ups that are making their debut in 2019.

The professional jury consisting of embedded sector experts and researchers has carefully scrutinised the large number of excellent submissions before reaching an independent verdict. “We are delighted by the large number of innovative and promising ideas that have been submitted by the embedded community.
