SAE International Editor, Magazine Honored with National Award of Excellence

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 29, 2013 -  Associate Editor Ryan Gehm and SAE International’s Automotive Engineering International (AEI) magazine were recently presented with a Silver Award in the Truck Writers of North America’s 10th annual Communication Awards competition.

Gehm and AEI received the award in the Internet – Feature category for the feature “Fab Cabs,” which appeared in the April 17, 2012 digital edition of the publication.

The award was presented March 21 in Louisville, Ky., at the annual Truck Writers of North America Industry Awards Banquet. The article was selected from nearly 80 entries in the competition, which recognizes excellence in trucking industry journalism in the trade and mainstream press.

“Fab Cabs” details how truck cabs increasingly mesh must-have functionality with passenger-car sensibilities for comfort and ambience. Technologies covered include the proliferation of LED (light-emitting diode) lighting, advances in connectivity such as “smart” navigation and Internet access, and engineering for thermal management.
