Driver drowsiness and distraction are major causes of traffic fatalities and many of the current monitoring solutions are ineffective. Our consumer research confirms that consumers desire more in-vehicle health and wellbeing solutions in the car and understanding the driver is a key need for enabling personalization features and improving safety. With over a half century of experience delivering solutions at the highest caliber, HARMAN Automotive provides human-centric solutions based on exceptional standards. The HARMAN Ready Care product combines intelligent machine learning algorithms and selected in-vehicle sensors to detect a driver’s personal state and proposes a customized and personalized in-cabin response to mitigate safety risks and increase wellbeing. 

The HARMAN Ready Care product is the first solution that can detect eyes and mind on the road and deliver a customized response—improving driver and occupant mobility. With state-of-the-art technology, including camera-based rPPG and radar-based sensors, the visual and mental cognitive-load-measurement uses neuroscience, artificial intelligence and machine learning to classify a driver’s behavior into a focused versus a distracted state.

HARMAN Automotive is excited to share insights on how Ready Care is improving safety and wellbeing in the vehicle on the Main Stage at the EcoMotion event. This year is all about Mobility 360 and is sure to be one of the most exciting smart mobility events globally. The event week will facilitate opportunities for knowledge sharing, collaboration and business interactions to move the mobility sector forward. EcoMotion is a joint venture of the Israel Innovation Institute (NGO) along with Israel's Ministry of Transport and Road Safety and the Ministry of Economy and Industry.
