“Automakers now have the ability to provide drivers and passengers with the unique and relevant services that will improve the in-car experiences while continuing to focus on improving driver safety, convenience and infotainment.” said Sanjay Dhawan, president, HARMAN Connected Services. “We’re working closely with the top partners in the industry to bring together these services to automakers and drive innovation for drivers and passengers.”

The Service Provider Program is a worldwide initiative available to workflow, content, data and service providers who are looking to bring their services to automakers, vehicles, drivers and passengers faster, while focusing on near-term opportunities in the automotive industry.
