Hanwha Techwin’s BabyView eco monitoring system and its Wisenet Circle Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based security manager application have both won their respective categories in the prestigious 2018 iF Design Awards.
This is the second year Hanwha Techwin products have been recognised by the judges of the prestigious iF Design Awards which, since 1953, have recognised designs that are able to achieve the best results when commercially applied. Regarded as one of the world’s top three design competitions, along with Germany’s Red Dot Design Awards and the US’ International Design Excellence Awards, this year’s competition generated 6,400 entries from 54 countries.
BabyView eco, the winner of the product category, has a unique design and friendly appearance which reflects the features of a baby camera. Available in Europe during the second quarter of 2018, BabyView eco has a long-tail design which can be installed in virtually any location.
Wisenet Circle, which provides object and voice recognition as well as a long list of other functions based on AI, won the Professional Concept category. As a conceptual design suggesting the future direction of Hanwha Techwin’s image security solutions, the application has received favourable reviews for its quick and intuitive implementation of complex security functions.
“It’s a great honour to win at the iF Design Awards again this year,” said Bob Hwang, managing director at Hanwha Techwin Europe. “It follows on from last year’s award for our home security camera. We will continue to research and develop innovative solutions from a user’s perspective and lead the global security market based on our company’s differentiated design and outstanding technical prowess. By winning at the iF Design Awards 2018, the Red Dot Design Awards 2017 and the iF Design Awards 2017 over the last two years, we’ve demonstrated as a business our technical excellence and design competitiveness.”
