The automotive industry is seeing a seismic shift with three ongoing technology disruptions: Electrification, Autonomy, and Software-Defined vehicles. Through developer tools underpinned by Open Standards and Open Source Software, HARMAN enables the vision of a Software-Defined vehicle. Our tools enhance developer productivity and collaboration in an increasingly fragmented and complex automotive software landscape.
The Eclipse Foundation’s SDV Work Group has played a significant role in developing Open Source Software components to enable the vision of a Software-Defined Vehicle. As part of this Work Group, HARMAN is building world-class in-vehicle experiences while allowing our customers to thrive in collaborative vehicle development environments.
“We are thrilled to join The Eclipse Foundation’s SDV working group, which will play a key role in influencing the next generation of vehicles” – Heiko Huettel, VP Software Products.
The SOAFEE VISION is to bring cloud-native development paradigm and its ubiquitous ecosystem to the highly diverse, heterogeneous compute platforms that will power the next generation of automotive and safety critical systems.
As part of the SOAFEE foundation, HARMAN collaborates with other community members to develop a seamless, cloud-based architecture to accelerate the industry's evolution toward Software-Defined vehicles.
Backed by years of software development experience in the automotive and consumer technology domains, HARMAN is uniquely positioned to provide solutions that enhance automotive developer productivity. We bring a deep knowledge of developer utilities such as OTA update solutions and cloud services to the table. HARMAN currently supports a thriving developer community associated with Ignite Store, our in-vehicle app store solution.
