Harnessing V2X capabilities and ultra-low latency applications, Savari MECWAVE is a multi-access edge computing software platform enabling automakers, network operators, and government agencies to deploy next-gen features and reimagine connectivity.
HARMAN Savari MECWAVE – V2X Applications on the Edge
Augmenting Vehicle-to-Everything Communication

HARMAN Savari MECWAVE is an innovative, edge-based software application platform that leverages cellular networks to enable a variety of real-time shared services and applications that enhance safety, mobility & infotainment experiences. ​

The applications can be deployed on a number of connected devices such as TCUs, automotive aftermarket devices, smartphones, wearables, etc.

Harnessing V2X to Rethink Mobility and Connectivity

Today, automotive consumers demand much more from their vehicles than just mobility. However, only 50% of vehicles are capable of providing next-gen driving experiences that meet evolving expectations. Additionally, consumer applications and experiences are not offered or supported across multiple end devices (smartphones, dongles, TCU, head units, and more).

The automotive space is currently focused on future-proofing vehicles, providing Mobility as a Service (MaaS), and equipping cars with newer applications. Network operators are looking to leverage MEC and 5G to provide near real-time in-car experiences to consumers. And government/regulatory agencies are aiming to connect pedestrians and non-motorized road users to vehicles using smartphones and wearable devices.

That’s the vision being brought to life by HARMAN Savari MECWAVE - a multi-access edge compute software platform, comprised of three core components that deliver optimized, real-time services to the end user:

  • Application Engine & Services on MECWAVE Server

  • User Applications (running on MECWAVE)

  • MECWAVE Client SDK for Client Devices

The result? Exciting new possibilities for safety, mobility, dynamic tolling, and infotainment use cases, using in-vehicle, roadside, and third-party data.
