    4 – Trumpf Track&Trace Localisation System, awarded the Red Dot Award 2019: best of the best

    Statement by the jury: Reduced to the essential, the perfect design of Track&Trace skilfully places the system’s highly specialised functions centre stage. The clear design language has been harmoniously adapted to indoor use in industrial environments. As an innovative locating system, it provides enhanced insights into the material flow of networked production processes by means of mini-satellites and markers. The system thus opens up a new approach towards digitisation in environments that have hitherto not been suitable for this purpose.

About the Red Dot Design Award:
In order to be able to professionally judge the many facets of design, the Red Dot Design Award is differentiated into the three disciplines of Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design, and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. The Red Dot Award is one of the largest design competitions worldwide. In 1955, a panel of jurors convened for the first time in order to evaluate the best designs at the time. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec developed the name and the brand of the award. Since then, the coveted "Red Dot" award has become the internationally renowned seal for outstanding design quality. More information at www.red-dot.de.
