CES 2013 Las Vegas: HARMAN Showcases Premium Infotainment Technologies For Connected In-Car Safety And Entertainment

HARMAN, the premium global audio and infotainment group, is unveiling its vision for tomorrow’s premium infotainment experience that leverages advanced safety and entertainment innovations including interactive head-up displays with augmented navigation, touch-free gesture controls, and the latest connectivity options.

Safety first

As the automotive sector pushes the boundaries of multimedia connectivity in the vehicle, exciting opportunities are emerging. Far from being a distraction, seamless in-vehicle access to road conditions, real-time traffic, and other media is key to driver safety. The new infotainment concept from HARMAN combines the latest in seamless connectivity solutions such as 4G/LTE to combine navigation data with a variety of external data to offer the driver richer safety data and driver assistance features. The concept is based around a “multi-display” concept, where the in-dash center console, instrumentation cluster, and head-up display are fully integrated.

The multi-display concept takes the breadth and depth of information available to a driver to a new level and also makes driver interaction safer than ever. HARMAN’s augmented navigation creates a “virtual reality” guidance experience, projecting guidance aids such as upcoming exits, signals, or collision warnings onto the windshield – helping keep the drivers’ eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

The unit includes advanced safety features to enable the vehicle to interact with its driver via the head-up display – for example, giving the driver an instant, unmissable cue (visual, audio or both) that the vehicle is leaving its lane, or that there is another vehicle in the driver’s blind spot. All this information is projected directly into the driver’s line of vision via the head-up display – the eyes don´t have to leave the road, and thus don’t have to change focus. Operation of the unit is totally touch-free: drivers change the display content safely by gesture control. Highly intuitive to use, touch-free gesture control puts drivers in charge of an array of infotainment options without the hazard of distraction: for instance, the driver can reject an incoming phone call just with a swipe of the hand, or change what’s shown on the display.
