Most recently, the editors of Popular Mechanics magazine recognized Visteon's aftermarket Vehicle Recovery System concept with an Editor's Choice Award, which was presented to the best and most innovative new products at the SEMA/AAPEX show held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The editors scrutinized thousands of new technologies and products to identify unique and innovative products on display at the show.

Visteon's Vehicle Recovery System is a concept technology that is being field-tested. This advanced Global Positioning System (GPS) - based vehicle recovery and tracking technology will give consumers convenient, 24-hour/seven-day-a-week ability to track vehicle location and operating status through an Internet site, receive instant theft notification through cellular phones; and enjoy options including remote door unlocking, concierge services, navigation assistance, personalized trip routing, and low-battery charge notification.

In addition, Visteon's Long Life Filtration System was named an Automotive News PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers' Contribution to Excellence) Award finalist for 2004, while Visteon's TACNET system received honorable mention. The Automotive News PACE Awards are among the supplier industry's most prestigious awards.

Visteon's Long Life Filtration System is a fully sealed air induction system designed to remove contaminants from engine intake air while providing noise control with minimal power loss. Furthermore, this system conditions the induction air stream to ensure accurate metering of air flow into the engine and contains a reticulated foam filter that is 97 percent porous and is designed to last more than 150,000 miles under normal use.

TACNET is an integrated tactical network that centralizes the command and control of multiple electronic systems in law enforcement vehicles. The system dramatically reduces the number of devices installed in the police car interior. TACNET integrates lights, sirens, multiple radios, radar, patrol video, AM/FM radio functions and mobile data computers. TACNET also gives officers a choice of command and control options by integrating the numerous switches and electronic equipment controls into three main interfaces: voice control, in-dash touch screen and an ergonomically designed control "pod." This flexibility provides law enforcement agencies with the ability to configure control functions to best meet their needs.

Visteon Corporation is a leading full-service supplier that delivers consumer-driven technology solutions to automotive manufacturers worldwide and through multiple channels within the global automotive aftermarket. Visteon has 75,000 employees and a global delivery system of more than 180 technical, manufacturing, sales and service facilities located in 25 countries.
