Sonique Far Field Voice Input Technology
In 2017, HARMAN introduced Sonique Far Field Voice Input Technology, which accurately captures voice commands even in high ambient noise environments, and seamlessly integrates with digital assistants including Alexa and Cortana. Sonique positions HARMAN as a global leader in voice-activated devices and the opportunities they provide. We believe this innovation can help eliminate human error in driving, especially as related to the autonomous vehicle, leading to safer roads and positive impacts on human lives.
HARMAN introduces the world’s first QLED screen for cars enabling safety as well as increasing power savings. With the adoption of electric vehicle technology, QLEDs with direct-lit back light technology allow for increased power savings, which can lead to increased range and efficiency. The direct-lit back light and local dimming technology works in a similar manner to Samsung’s QLED televisions, and leverages the same algorithms and technical expertise capable of producing greater than 100 percent color volume. Beyond the benefit to drivers and passengers, OEMs finally have access to a cost-effective and scalable QLED solution for the next generation of automotive displays.
HARMAN New R&D Facility
To further our commitment to safety, we opened a 46,000 square foot building in Israel which will feature an advanced Smart Car Lab, where teams can research and test HARMAN’s cybersecurity, over-the-air software updates, and automotive cloud solutions. As a recognized automotive industry leader, HARMAN will continue to have presence and influence with the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), and other industry organizations.
