Introducing the World’s first Social Networking Car

HARMAN, the Premium global audio and informative group is lending its most innovative connectivity and audio solutions to help create the world’s first social networking vehicle – the Rinspeed BamBoo electric concept car. HARMAN showcased a range of connectivity solutions that balance safety, convenience, and driving enjoyment at the Geneva auto show.

Using HARMAN’s next-generation, scalable infotainment platform as the core, a number of networking and connectivity options have been integrated into the system to bring the youthful and social concept vehicle to life.

HARMAN’s infotainment system includes an integrated WiFi connection that connects the vehicle to the people and places around it via the Internet. HARMAN uses the most advanced data streaming protocols to allow the car to share digital music with those in and around the BamBoo. With the widest range of smartphone support, HARMAN will showcase seamless connectivity between Android-based smartphones and tablet computers from HTC Corporation and the HARMAN in-dash head unit.

Information such as e-mails and SMS texts are seamlessly converted from text-to-speech, allowing drivers to keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. And to ensure the fun doesn’t stop in the driveway, HARMAN has included a wireless DLNA connection that connects the HARMAN in-dash system to a Harman Kardon home media player – literally keeping the music going wherever you are.
