TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A device developed by Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan’s largest high-tech applied research institution, and another product rolled out by ITRI’s spinoff have both won CES 2019 Innovation Awards, according to a news release issued by ITRI earlier this month.
ITRI’s Hybrid Power Drone with High Payload and Duration alongside ELECLEAN’s Disinfectant Spray were each named CES 2019 Innovation Award Honorees in the Robotics and Drones category and the Home Appliances category, respectively, the institute said in the news release.
The annual CES Innovation Awards program honors outstanding product design and engineering in brand-new consumer technology products.
“ITRI’s Hybrid Power Drone with High Payload and Duration is an octocopter that can hover up to 45 minutes at 30 kg payload, which is over three times the endurance of a drone powered solely by lithium battery,” the news release said. [FULL STORY]
