LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic is proud to announce that its CIRRUS by Panasonic® won the CES 2020 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Vehicle Intelligence & Transportation category.  Chosen over hundreds of submissions, CIRRUS by Panasonic was awarded the distinction by a panel of judges all highly respected in their fields, including consumer technology designers, engineers and members of the media.

CIRRUS by Panasonic is a connected vehicle data platform that enables the sharing of data between vehicles, infrastructure, roadways and traffic operators in real time. The centerpiece of a smart transportation ecosystem and the largest and most ambitious deployment of V2X technology, CIRRUS by Panasonic relies on cloud analytics and data processing to provide real-time analysis as well as data transmission and storage capabilities for sharing and updating vehicles and municipalities with road conditions, operations and other safety information. CIRRUS by Panasonic is accessible, adaptable, extensible and secure, developed using industry V2X standards so that it can be easily integrated into existing transportation systems. By using vehicles as the sensors of traffic networks, CIRRUS by Panasonic increases situational awareness, enables real-time traveler alerts, and serves as a platform for data sharing and innovation.
