TU-Automotive unveiled the annual TU-Automotive Awards list for 2020, spotlighting winners among three featured categories including Product and Service, People, and Company. Some new categories were created for 2020, and created new criteria for each award, and eligibility was focused on accomplishments in specific time frames. The Informa Tech Automotive Group analysts and editors then turned the entries into a list of the finalists and an independent panel of judges picked the category winners.

The Automotive Safety Council (ASC) and the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) are honored to win the Collaborative Partnership of the Year Award that recognizes two or more companies have undertaken a meaningful, non-commercial partnership with the objective of advancing the development and/or adoption of automotive technology between January 1, 2019 and February 19, 2020. The Automotive Safety Council and the ATSSA trade associations collaborated to amend the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) section on pavement markings for all 50 states. Machine vision equipped vehicles will be able to see the road direction from further away allowing directional certainty sooner and be able to follow intended roadway paths with better accuracy.  The proposed changes will provide consistency in pavement markings from state to state that currently do not exist.  Additionally, these new standardized markings will allow more roadways to be read successfully and more road miles used by ADAS equipped vehicles and future AV’s with a posted speed ≥55 mph.

The 2020 TU-Automotive Award winners were honored in an all new, one year only, special virtual ceremony during the Informa Tech Automotive Group’s Festival of Automotive featuring TU-Automotive Detroit, WardsAuto Interiors Conference, WardsAuto User Experience Conference, Connected Car Insurance and ADAS & Autonomous Vehicles held August 18-20.
