Slovenian-based appliance maker Gorenje announced it has chosen Echelon Corporation's LonWorks(R) device networking platform used for connecting devices to each other and the Internet in a new line of product offerings.

According to Gorenje, it is incorporating Echelon's technology into a new range of LonWorks-based appliances targeted at the mid- to high-end European consumer appliance market. The new line of appliances is scheduled for market introduction in the second quarter of 2005 and is planned to include refrigerators, dishwashers, microwave ovens, and conventional ovens.

The products will reportedly be designed to actively lower energy costs while improving performance, reliability, and convenience. Gorenje's appliance strategy includes the delivery of value-added services for consumers such as advanced appliance diagnostics and monitoring via a broadband service gateway utilizing Echelon's OSGi(TM) LonWorks Bundle.

According to Franjo Bobinac, Gorenje's CEO and chairman, "We see a strong market trend toward a higher quality of life, greater safety, and a growing demand for increased quality of service across all sectors in the consumer market. We intend to meet that demand by partnering with Echelon to deliver kitchen and home appliances that have extremely high intrinsic value, connect to value-added service portals, and most importantly, deliver on the promise of the digital lifestyle so many consumers are demanding."

In addition to partnering with Echelon, Gorenje has joined the LonMark(R) International trade organization to support the definition and propagation of open standards for home appliances worldwide and has become active in the LonMark Task Group for Appliances.
