    “Audio has the power to deliver incredible experiences for drivers and passengers, and safety is no exception. With our new embedded audio products, Sound and Vibration Sensor and External Microphone, OEMs can now offer the acoustic sensing and exterior sound detection consumers are looking for, while enhancing safety both inside and outside the vehicle,” said Harman International Automotive Embedded Audio Senior Director Mitul Jhala.

    According to Harman, its Sound and Vibration Sensor and External Microphone has three key features:

    • Easy vehicle integration: Harman’s Sound and Vibration Sensor is a fully developed design that allows for invisible vehicle integration, enabling exterior vehicle speech recognition and acoustic sensing.
    • Ready for the future: As future vehicles advance, they will likely be required to include enhanced external sensors to increase awareness of exterior sounds for vehicle occupants and the vehicle systems, such as feeding the acoustic alerts delivered by Harman Ready Vision. Harman’s Sound and Vibration Sensor and External Microphone provide an integrated sensor product that enables acoustic monitoring of speech commands and sounds on the outside of the vehicle, delivering what consumers need today as opposed to years from now.
    • High performance: Harman’s Sound and Vibration Sensor and External Microphone exhibit a wide band frequency response for accurate speech recognition and acoustic sensing performance, enabling potential AI features such as audio object detection in Harman’s Ready Vision.

    Both the Sound and Vibration Sensor and External Microphone are unique, patented designs and have been specifically designed to meet the needs of OEMs and consumers.
