Electronics Future Awards 2010: Yellowbird ALERT

For the second year running, LX Innovations has won a major award at the Electronics Future Awards 2010.

LX Innovations was awarded winner in the Digital Home category, Highly Commended in the Communications category and nominated in the Wellness and Environment categories with YellowBird ALERT. (

YellowBird ALERT (Automatic Linking to Emergency Radio Transmissions) is an emergency alert system that warns of natural disasters by utilising AM and FM radio transmissions.

YellowBird logs onto a registered radio station and sits dormant until an alert is received. In the event of an emergency, authorities may decide to send an alert by creating a message and alert tone package, which sends out an immediate radio broadcast.

If contact it lost with the registered radio station, Yellow Bird will notify the user and scan for alternative stations.

In 2009, LX Innovations was awarded overall winner for best project, first place in the best application of test/data acquisition category and a highly commended in the category of best application of RF wireless design.
