Fire Rover, West Bloomfield, Michigan, announced that it was awarded the top prize for its fire elimination technology at The Edison Awards, which were held April 4 in New York City. The Edison Awards are given out annually by Palos Park, Illinois-based Edison Universe, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering future innovators.
Fire Rover’s technology utilizes heat detection, remote-controlled suppression, and 24/7 live monitoring services to protect businesses from the threat of fire. The company’s technology is used in a number of business applications, including in the waste and recycling sectors.
“Once again, the winners created innovations that are revolutionizing industries and becoming indispensable. One of the game-changing winners, Fire Rover, was recognized as a true innovator in industrial safety,” Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards, says.
The nominees for the Edison Awards were judged by a panel of more than 3,000 business executives that include past award winners, academics and leaders in the product development, design, engineering, science and medical fields.
