Harman, Rinspeed partner on Dock + Go dashboard concept

Harman is kicking off the Geneva Auto Show by unveiling its new dashboard concept for cars of the future. The Dock + Go system turns your dashboard into a “learning,” Aha cloud-connected platform that’ll try to eliminate traffic jams, or at least you’re kept entertained in line. Your smartphone will connect over NFC and immediately the car will remember your preferred settings and social networks for access. The navigation will learn your driving habits and tweak the GPS settings accordingly and it’ll even measure your alertness level and suggest you take a nap, or at least drive down a less busy street. It can recognize gestures and with a wave of the hand, it can start reading your new emails or tweets and, best of all, when driving past a store, the cloud system can show you vouchers and deals for your road-based impulse purchase needs — after all, there’s nothing better than being offered half-price meat while you’re cruising down the freeway.
