HARMAN Ignite: In-Vehicle Experience


HARMAN Ignite enables OEMs to create an in-car experience that rivals – and in some cases surpasses – the personalization of a smartphone or other consumer devices. Most importantly, it can evolve over time.

With this smart, seamless and scalable approach, OEMs can realize lucrative digital revenue via new business models and revenue streams while creating a stand-out experience for drivers.

HARMAN Ignite is an automotive digital ecosystem that brings the benefits of connected life into the vehicle. Some of its most notable benefits include:

Scalable: Supports a growing catalog of third-party apps while continually integrating with industry-leading solutions.

Flexible: Portrays content in various formats, layout sizes and contexts.

Valuable: Helps keep drivers informed and focused while keeping passengers engaged and entertained using portable apps and services.

Staying connected on the road: Apps and services are easily managed on the cloud and can be maintained on a mobile phone via the companion app.

Keeping things familar: Provides standardized experiences for a glanceable interface across multiple streaming services.

Voice-first experience: Provides a safe, non-visual mode of input in the car by integrating an intelligent assistant that prioritizes context so drivers and passengers can accomplish more in the car. The voice assistant can recommend apps and services based on requests, needs, history, time of day and more.
