BNP Media's Autonomous Vehicle Technology recognizes the most innovative technologies, products, and services of the year in its main areas of coverage: vehicle autonomy, connectivity, electrification, and mobility services

TROY, MI / ACCESSWIRE / December 5, 2019 / For the 2020 edition of its AVT ACES Awards (#avtaces), BNP Media's Autonomous Vehicle Technology print/digital issue, website, and enewsletters are highlighting in December 2019 the top companies and their new mobility innovations in the past year. Over the past few months, the editors and other industry experts evaluated numerous companies looking for those with the most innovative products and best reputations in their industries. Winners of the AVT ACES Awards were determined over the past few months by the editors based on contributor, industry expert, company, and reader inputs.

The awards recognize the most innovative technologies, products, and services of the year from your company in the areas of vehicle autonomy, connectivity, electrification, and mobility services (ACES). They include broader transportation ecosystem innovations around supporting topics such as city planning, architecture, and telecommunications, and other built-environment areas as well as standards development.

The AVT ACES recognize production and prototype innovations and the work or result of top partnerships, collaborations, and consortia. The theme of collaboration is stronger now than ever as incumbent original equipment makers and suppliers as well as tech companies and startups recognize that not even the largest and most capable of companies can address all of the challenges of new mobility technology, engineering, and development.
