The prestigious Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, the producer of CES 2016, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products.

The CES Innovation Awards are based upon descriptive materials submitted to the judges.
NeWave’s Smart Shelf™ system provides information on shelf item movement in seconds using its unique patented Wave® RFID antenna technology. In simple terms, when an item leaves the shelf, NeWave’s Smart Shelf sees it even when it is not tagged. Based on criteria set by the retailer for low inventory limits, the Smart Shelf software signals an alert in real time that can be sent on-site to store managers, or remotely to merchandising and loss prevention personnel as well as suppliers The Smart Shelf can also trigger an audio alarm message and a video capture alert within the store. The system strives to make it easy to get real time in or out of stock shelf information available anytime to any authorized person or group.
The Smart Shelf is the first system/technology to provide on shelf merchandise availability without the need for tagging the products on the shelf, greatly lowering use costs. The award winning Smart Shelf will be showcased at the Wistron NeWeb Corporation (WNC) booth located in the LVCC South Hall #21000 during CES 2016 January 6–9, 2016 in Las Vegas.
