Harman International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, said its facility in Lodz, had been approved as a 3rd Party Lab (3PL) for Android Auto Projection (AAP) certifications.
This will enable the supplier to certify head units developed by its automaker customers, streamlining product development and deployment.
This strengthens its ability to serve customers across Europe and offers more flexibility and shorter time to market for European-based automakers and Tier One suppliers.
It also addresses specific requirements and regulations, ensuring testing is as complete as possible to streamline product availability. Harman’s expertise in consumer experience and vehicle testing will also help ensure products work seamlessly with other products across the automotive sector.
“Consumers are demanding richer experiences and always-on connectivity from their vehicles, putting the pressure on automakers to innovate,” said Kaushik Banerjee, VP & GM, automotive engineering services business unit.
