Harman developers are striving to create human-machine interfaces oriented more towards user needs.

In-car connectivity for today's cars and tomorrow's autonomous vehicles is moving product development norms beyond the traditional engineering approach. “Most products are designed from a straightforward engineering focus: It works like this. But with a user experience approach, it's about designing with empathy,” said Jason Johnson, director of user experience (UX) design at Harman.
