WINNER: Rear liftgate opens without a touch

Brose North America Inc.

What: Hands-free liftgate opener

Innovation: Motorists whose hands are full can open the rear liftgate with a kicking motion underneath a sensor in the bumper. The device reads signals from the motorist’s key fob to avoid unwanted entry.

First customer: BMW 5 series, 2011
