During a recent HARMAN Insider event in Detroit, MI – I got the chance to experience the future in wellness, entertainment and transportation through HARMAN’S Moodscape technology and immersive Configurable Entertainment system.
Imagine an immersive driving experience that automatically knows when to pump you up for next workout at the gym and can keep you calm, cool and collected during your rush hour commute. Now toss in autonomous driving capabilities into the mix and you have the foundation behind HARMAN’S Moodscape experience. HARMAN recently introduced Moodscape, the latest experience-centric lifestyle automotive solution that offers personalized entertainment, comfort and convenience for passengers. Moodscape encourages lifestyle optimization by utilizing mood-based features to redefine in-car comfort and entertainment on your daily commute.
