Samsung wants the world to know they manufacture more than phones and televisions. "Through the DRVLINE platform, we're inviting the best and brightest from the automotive industry to join us, and help shape the future of the vehicle of tomorrow, today". The system will be able to give lane departure warning, forward collision warnings, detect pedestrians, and have support for automatic emergency braking.

"Together with Samsung, we have increased innovation speed through scale, resources and competencies to help automakers focus on the car's evolution from device-centric to experience centric", said Dinesh Paliwal, HARMAN President and CEO.


Samsung has announced its DRVLINE autonomous driving platform. The challenge is simply too big and too complex. "Through the DRVLINE platform we're inviting the best and brightest from the automotive industry to join us, and help shape the future of the vehicle of tomorrow". Harman and Samsung are set to deliver what they say is an industry first 5G-ready automotive solution, with a multi-band conformal antenna to enable secure, fast and reliable data communications.

During the Consumer Electronics Show 2018, Samsung and Harman together unveiled an advanced automotive platform, or "digital cockpit", the first fruits of their joint development of automotive electronics technology since the Korean tech giant bought Harman in March a year ago. How long until the yellow light turns red? 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 the time of the acquisition, Young Sohn, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Samsung Electronics, said, "We see transformative opportunities in the auto - and a future which seamlessly connects lifestyle across automotive, home, mobile and work". Additionally, the Android OS can be integrated on four different screens. A year of successes for Samsung Samsung has had a year of historic firsts, including acquiring connected technologies company Harman for $8.0 billion.

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


At CES, the company also showed off new automotive solutions that it is offering with its subsidiary Harman.
