A 2016 Best of Innovation Award went to none other than Ford for a driver assist feature that helps drivers backup a trailer using a simple knob built into the dash of a truck. The Pro Trailer Backup Assist is available in the Ford F150.
In addition, there were some intriguing products that took 2016 Innovation Honors under the In-Vehicle Audio-Video category including a “Simple Box” from Parrot. We’ll try to bring you more details on the products prior to CES.
As for the Parrot Simple Box pictured here, the product description says “Why have different devices for navigation, music and communication in the car when you already have the best one in your pocket? All it needs is to be enhanced and completed by some features to adapt itself in an automotive environment. This is why we released our Parrot Simple Box.”
