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, such as bushfires or floods, 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.

Simon Blyth, director of LX Innovations said ”my team and I are thrilled and greatly encouraged to receive this award” and added that he was pleased to be able to support an event that recognised and promoted electronics innovation.

In 2009, LX Innovations was awarded overall winner at the EDN Innovations Awards for Best Project with WMD3000, a device that monitors a user's gym workout and provides feedback wirelessly. Also awarded to LX, was first place in Best Application of Test/Data Acquisition category and highly commended in the category of Best Application of RF Wireless Design.
