Grammer and audio specialist HARMAN forging partnership for "best-in-class" sound headrest
- Cooperation for the development of various concepts and products for upgrading the vehicle interior
- Integrating audio systems in headrests yields innovative communication solutions for all vehicle occupants
"This strategic partnership with HARMAN marks a further step towards positioning Grammer as the preferred partner of the automotive industry for innovative interior solutions," says Thorsten Seehars, Chief Executive Officer of Grammer AG. "I am convinced that the expertise held by both companies will lead to groundbreaking solutions for our customers."
Importance of interior and seating systems growing
"We are witnessing the beginning of a significant change in user needs in the vehicle interior. The trend is moving towards far greater individualization, especially in the multimedia sector. Sound zone technologies and noise cancellation are just a few of the technologies that can be integrated into existing interior solutions in a design-optimized way through this partnership," says Dr. Michael Borbe, Group Vice President R&D of Grammer AG.
Partnership between two market leaders
The aim of the partnership is to jointly develop a best-in-class audio system. Looking forward, one key element of this, namely the integration of audio components in the headrest, will enable individual audio programming for each passenger during the journey. This will improve the clear and direct communication between individual passengers, the individualized use of different audio services by each passenger and also offers the possibility to pass on specific signals of the vehicle acoustically only to the driver.
