Autotether receives technology award

The wireless lanyard system manufactured by Autotether recently received the Connecticut Technology Council 2011 Innovation Pipeline Award as the most promising new technology product of the year.

“We’re honored to be recognized by our home state technology council. With the U.S. Coast Guard currently developing a regulation to require the installation and use of engine cut-off switches, this award couldn’t come at a better time for our company,” CEO Anthony Viggiano said in a statement.

The new Coast Guard regulation would require the installation and use of engine cutoff switches (lanyards) for boats less than 26 feet. Lanyards turn off a boat's engine if the operator is ejected from the boat, preventing boating injuries and casualties caused when people are struck by the boat or its propeller.
