The Edison Awards, celebrating 26 years of honoring the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services, announced today that Clearpath Robotics was voted the Silver winner in the category of Applied Technology for Kingfisher M200 Unmanned Surface Vessel at the Annual Awards Gala in Chicago. Clearpath Robotics Account Executive, Robin Albrecht, joined hundreds of senior executives from some of the world’s most recognized companies to accept the award on behalf of Clearpath Robotics.

“Our judges recognized Clearpath Robotics as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.

The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.

Being recognized with an Edison Award™ has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name around the world.

“We are truly honored to be included among this elite group of innovative companies,” said Matt Rendall, CEO of Clearpath Robotics. “Kingfisher M200 has made significant advancements in environment surveying technology, and to be recognized with this award is a great step forward for Clearpath Robotics.”

One of the evening’s many highlights was the presentation of the prestigious Edison Achievement Award to Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chairman and CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated. The award honors innovation leaders and business executives who have made a significant and lasting contribution to innovation throughout their careers. The Edison Achievement Award serves as inspiration to future innovators and to the world at large.
