Smart Radio Solutions
Transforming the Radio Experience
Traditional radio remains the most listened to audio format in the car today. Yet, despite its continued popularity, the driver experience for discovering radio programming has not seen significant changes in decades. Now, with Gracenote Smart Radio Solutions, automakers are able to reimagine the radio experience.
Radio Station ID
Gracenote Radio Station ID eliminates the need for “scanning the dial.” Instead, drivers and passengers can discover their favorite music, news and talk programming through smart guides featuring normalized radio categories as well as station names and logos.
Using audio fingerprinting technology built into the car’s audio system, Gracenote MusicID Radio identifies music playing from terrestrial and digital radio to display artist, album, Album Cover Art, and track name on the dashboard.
Gracenote is bringing live sports data to the car, letting drivers track their favorite players, teams and leagues, while also delivering live scores, stats and links to broadcasts so fans never miss a minute of the action.
