Axalta, a global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, is pleased to announce it won three bronze Edison Awards in the categories of Innovative Services, Sustainability and Engineering and Materials Science.

Named after Thomas Edison, the Edison Awards have recognized and honored some of the most innovative new products, services and business leaders in the world since 1987.

 

"We are proud to be an Edison Award recipient for the third consecutive year," said Robert Roop, Axalta's chief technology officer. "Axalta’s focus on continuous innovation of our coating solutions is the key to our company’s success. Receiving three Edison Awards for innovations in three different categories is further validation of Axalta’s commitment to developing new technology to serve our customers." 

 

Enabling advancements for autonomous vehicles

 

In the Innovative Services category, Axalta's LiDAR Gonio-Retroreflectometer System (ALGRS) won a bronze 2021 Edison Award.

 

This patented optical system measures the LiDAR reflectivity of vehicle coatings for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) or autonomous vehicles. ALGRS allows Axalta's chemists and designers to create LiDAR-compatible coatings without compromising appearance or color.

 

ADAS, like emergency braking and collision avoidance, depends heavily on LiDAR technology to improve vehicle safety and advance autonomous vehicles. The novel coatings analysis provided by ALGRS enables new color development and formulations that assure the LiDAR detectability of painted coatings over the wide range of traffic conditions that exist in the autonomous environment.

 

“ALGRS represents a major advancement in...
