Samsung Announces DRVLINE™ Platform

Samsung Announces DRVLINE™ Platform

That's what we heard from dozens of companies at CES 2018, including Samsung Electronics (SSNLF), which is vying for a significant chunk of what some estimate will be a $7 trillion market by 2050.

"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. 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. "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".

And to bring everything together Samsung and Harman are spearheading a new 5G-capable telematics system for cars, capable of giving 1Gbps connectivity to all the instruments of your vehicle. What does DRVLINE offer? The system will be able to give lane departure warning, forward collision warnings, detect pedestrians, and have support for automatic emergency braking.

Major Push To Legalize Recreational Marijuana Expected In Upcoming Session
Fortunately, even as Sessions seeks to target legal marijuana , Congress is moving forward with legislation to thwart that effort. He was originally against legalizing marijuana when it first hit the ballot. "The federal government still has laws against it".

Samsung and Harman also revealed plans for the industry first introduction of 5G in-car internet connectivity. "How far is that lamppost?" The platform offers an in-car screen that can display vital vehicle information and features. This also allows for the Android OS to be integrated on four displays - a first for the industry.

When Samsung acquired HARMAN International for 8 billion in March previous year, little did we foresee announcements coming from the coalition this early. They also created a joint automotive Strategic Business Unit and established a $300 million Samsung Automotive Innovation Fund and went forward with a series of investments and partnerships designed to promote collaboration in the automotive sector.

"HARMAN has the heritage and expertise in automotive, and collectively HARMAN and Samsung harness our best technologies and global scale to accelerate how we better serve the needs of automakers in this rapidly evolving automotive market".
