HELLA Named a 2020 Automotive News PACE Awards Finalist

HELLA's Brake System Sensor and Rain/Light/Climate Sensor are advancing to the finalist stage of the PACE Awards process

NORTHVILLE, Mich., Oct. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The lighting and electronics expert HELLA is again named a 2020 Automotive News PACE Awards finalist. HELLA has been nominated for its Brake System Sensor, a unique and new brake sensor with its CIPOS® (Contactless Inductive Position Sensor) technology that combines both the Pedal Travel Sensor and Motor Position Sensor into one integrated inductive sensor. Also the Rain/Light/Climate Sensor, a highly optimized, lightweight, small Rain/Light Sensor package, featuring a common architecture for ease of adoptability across vehicle makes and models as well as new software and hardware improvements, is a finalist for the renowned 2020 Automotive News PACE Awards. The winners will be named on March 23, 2020, at the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center in Detroit.

"HELLA's consistent dedication to problem-solving makes us a thought leader in the automotive industry. I am extremely proud of the teams that made the Rain/Light/Climate Sensor and Brake System Sensor possible. These are only two examples in our wide portfolio of technologies that offer revolutionary fixes for common problems drivers face every day," said Joerg Weisgerber, member of the Electronics executive board and responsible for the Electronics business of HELLA in North, Central and South America. "We are unbelievably honored and humbled to have not one, but two technologies selected as PACE Awards finalists this year. A recognition from such an institution in its 26th year does not come easily and took true collaboration between our technical teams and customers."

This is the third consecutive year that HELLA has been named a finalist for this prestigious awards program that sets the standard for industry excellence and innovation by recognizing game-changing technologies. Last year, HELLA's SHAKE sensor (abbreviation for Structural Health and Knock Emission) for Road Condition Detection, a first-of-its-kind solution for providing cars with the sense of hearing and touch in order to increase a vehicle's awareness of road conditions, was named a 2019 PACE Awards Finalist. In 2014, HELLA won a PACE Award for its LED Matrix Beam technology, which combines a front camera, high-performance software and "intelligent lighting" technology to recognize other vehicles as well as provide "glare-free" illumination.
