CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree

MANN+HUMMEL named as CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree

New York, NY, January 9, 2017 – MANN+HUMMEL today announced that it has been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for Senzit, the world's first smart air filter monitor.

Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

Through smart technology, Senzit provides a new method of monitoring air filter status. Senzit will deliver a new level of connectivity across vehicle types and brands with a central portal to reduce downtime and repair costs.

Senzit is the next generation in vehicle maintenance. Operators, mechanics, and heavy-duty fleet managers no longer need to physically inspect an air filter to determine its condition. Senzit will monitor, in real-time, the air filter status for each individual piece of equipment to reduce unnecessary filter maintenance. 

“Being first-to-market in smart technology for filter monitoring is a continuation of our commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction,” said Charles Vaillant. “It’s an amazing product that lets you know exactly how many hours are remaining on your air filter, it calculates a unique prediction for each machine individually. But Senzit does much more than just air filter monitoring, it is a Jack-of-all-trades. It also tracks engine hours, daily activities, and GPS location and many more features.

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, the owner and producer of CES 2018, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

MANN+HUMMEL’s Senzit will be displayed at CES 2018, which runs January 9-12, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada. A selection of Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled New York, which features dozens of exhibitors and networking opportunities and runs 3:00-7:30 PM November 9 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York.

Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.

CES 2018 Innovation Honoree products are featured on CES.tech/Innovation, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, description, photo and URL.
