HARMAN Ready Care - A Saftey and Wellbeing-Focused Vehicle Experience
Ready Care is a solution that enhances the safety and comfort of drivers and passengers. 

It detects and measures driver distraction and drowsiness and provides personalized in-cabin experiences to keep eyes and mind on the road, and reduce stress in the vehicle. ​

Protective, Intelligent, Wellbeing

The digital health and wellbeing sectors are growing rapidly, and consumers are expressing a desire to integrate and experience additional safety, health and wellbeing solutions into their vehicles. The automotive industry, however, has been slow in its response to integrate these emerging technologies into their product offerings. 

HARMAN Ready Care technology combines intelligent machine learning algorithms and selected in-vehicle sensors to detect a driver’s personal state and propose a customized and personalized in-cabin response to mitigate safety risks and wellbeing. When the drowsiness feature was tested, 70% of people said it helped them to feel safe in the vehicle. 

Real-time situational awareness via measurement of the driver’s cognitive load is used to provide early detection of any driver impairment and optimizes response to driver ADAS warnings. 

Stress-Free Driving Experience

Have you ever turned on your navigation system to get your through an unfamiliar area or an area with heavy construction, only to be led through a complex maze of roads that is more stressful than sitting through the traffic? 34% of people want to use the time in their car to de-stress, but it currently does the opposite. 

Stress-Free Routing from Ready Care provides an alternative route to the typical Fastest / Shortest / Avoid-Toll-Roads options. This personalized navigation output guides drivers through a low-stress route that eliminates road interferences that cause stress-responses in the driver.
