What our winners are saying…

“AutoSens has emerged as a leading forum to capture the heartbeat of automated driving for ADAS and fully autonomous vehicles, and I am thrilled to have won the Young Engineer of the Year Award. While this is an individual honor, I really wanted to congratulate the entire Algolux R&D team for their outstanding achievements these past few years. It is their work at the intersection of computational imaging and computer vision that is being recognized for the 4th time at AutoSens. We look forward to innovating even more in 2021!” Felix Heide, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Algolux “We are proud and excited to receive the prestigious “2020 Vision” AutoSens Award, honoring significant progress throughout the vehicle perception ecosystem. Winning this award is a valuable recognition of all the hard work and effort the TriEye team has put in developing our world-first CMOS-based SWIR sensing solution. We are committed to enhancing road visibility to reduce risks of car accidents in all weather and lighting conditions and we will continue to work toward that vision.” Avi Bakal, CEO & Co-Founder of TriEye “Thank you all for this unexpected honor, which I appreciate all the more because everyone on the short list is outstandingly qualified. My work in imaging is actually my second career, which I started it when I was sixty. It’s been a real honor to help the industry improve the quality of a wide variety of cameras and a pleasure to get to know some amazing people along the way.” Norman Koren, Founder, Imatest “Winning the AutoSens Product of the Year Award means a lot to our team.
