Savari’s hardware and software are radio agnostic, designed to fit any standards-compliant radio. “I look forward to joining HARMAN, and working with their ecosystem of customers and partners, to advance the future of our connected infrastructure and realize safer, more efficient transportation,” says Ravi Puvvala, Founder and CEO, Savari. Savari employees will join Harman upon closing of the deal, and will be integrated into the company's Automotive division.
