Today, we are pleased to share that HARMAN was recognized as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies within the Automotive category! This news comes at a time when we are seeing rapid momentum for the business, and builds off of our more than 60 years of innovation and experience within the automotive industry.
With more than 25 million vehicles equipped with HARMAN audio and connected car systems on the road today, we are helping to pave the way to safer, more secure, and more entertaining experiences for drivers and passengers worldwide.
Our Individual Sound Zones (ISZ) technology was highlighted as a standout innovation on the list, which Fast Company editors compile based on extensive research and data gathering. But HARMAN innovation doesn’t stop there. In 2016, we’ve already announced a number of exciting innovations that are pushing the boundaries of automotive technology, including:
- The launch of our LIVS (Life-Enhancing Vehicle Solution) platform, the world’s most comprehensive end-to-end automotive computing platform for intelligent, adaptable and personalized connected car experiences;
- Becoming Microsoft’s first partner to integrate Microsoft 365 into vehicles, advancing productivity in the car;
- Taking navigation to the next level with the premiere of our advanced navigation solution with live data fusion, blending embedded and cloud-based services with HARMAN’s state-of-the-art route guidance instructions.
- Showcasing new car audio technologies including the Summit Car audio system, which leverages next-generation connectivity capabilities, and the Infinity Voyager Drive system, recognized for its ability to seamlessly integrate Lifestyle Audio solutions for the home, car and on-the-go.
Of course, we would never be able to achieve these milestones if it weren’t for our most valuable assets – our employees! We’re excited to share this honor with each and every one of them and look forward to achieving new innovation goals for the next year.
