CES 2018: Samsung Unveils The Future Of Connectivity And Autonomous Driving

Samsung reveals 5G connected car plans, including Harman-developed Telematics Control Unit

Samsung is aspiring to become the leader in the autonomous driving market.

The show is exactly the right place for Samsung to unveil its first components for autonomous driving and infotainment solutions that it has been developing with Harman International, which it bought out around a year ago as part of its major push into the vehicle electronics market. TCU is a product of Samsung's collaboration with Harman, which prior to its late 2016 acquisition by Samsung was perhaps best known to consumers for JBL-branded speakers; Harman also had significant long-term involvement in auto navigation systems deployed in popular vehicles. The move will allow manufacturers to collaborate on the software but still leave room for customizability, giving cars the ability to be equipped with technology running a more future-proofed platform. Samsung and Harman are leveraging their global expertise in electronics with DRVLINE, with IoT and embedded systems, including in-car compute for Levels 3, 4, and 5 automation. Unveiled today at CES 2018 are a host of unique connected vehicle solutions that support HARMAN and Samsung's joint mission to become the leader in connectivity and autonomous driving: connecting the lives of people, whether at home, on the go, or together in the auto.

Samsung has announced its DRVLINE autonomous driving platform. The system will be able to give lane departure warning, forward collision warnings, detect pedestrians, and have support for automatic emergency braking.

"In a vehicle, the human brain is constantly performing incredibly complex calculations while driving", said John Absmeier, SVP of Autonomous/ADAS Strategic Business Unit at HARMAN and VP of Smart Machines for Samsung Electronics.

Samsung confirms Galaxy S9 launch date

Could Amazon really acquire Target?
Last month, CFRA bank analyst Ken Leon wrote that he foresees the Internet company buying a small- or mid-sized bank in 2018. Amazon has not publicly hinted at a possible acquisition of Target , so take it with a grain of salt for now.

DRVLINE now has several best-in-class components and technologies. The industry has made incredible advances in automation, yet in-car compute is still a long way from approximating the power of our brains. At CES 2018, these two companies showed what their partnership can bring - especially in the area of connected technologies for the automotive industry.

In addition to the new TCU, Samsung provided a brief refresher on its Intelligent Digital Cockpit platform, discussed at last year's CES.

First up, Harman is boasting of their new Digital Cockpit, which brings an advanced and very ergonomic approach to the center console of your auto. Additionally, the Android OS can be integrated on four different screens.

HARMAN and Samsung are on a joint mission to excel as far as the future goes.
