CESAEM member companies John Deere and Robert Bosch LLC were among several companies recently recognized as Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021 Innovation Award winners.

Each year, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) honors outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products. The Innovation Awards Program, which received more than 12,000 submissions for this year’s awards, recognizes two levels of honorees among 28 product categories.

  • Honoree: A product that scores above the threshold set for a specific category.
  • Best of Innovation: Given to only the highest-rated product in each category, or multiple in the event of a tie. Best of Innovation in each category is not guaranteed.
