CES: Samsung and Harman unveil new automotive solution

Harman Digital Cockpit concept

It only takes a brief glimpse at the news coming out of CES 2018 to see how the automotive industry is now easily one of the fastest-growing segments of the technology market, and that's because automakers are looking to add more and more autonomous features as the race to put driverless cars on the road intensifies.

It offers in-car compute for levels 3 to 5 automation and a new ADAS - Advanced Driver Assistance System - forward-facing camera system, designed with Harman.

Each new solution was made possible through the HARMAN-Samsung alliance that leverages Samsung's global scale, R&D capabilities, dominance in mobile/TV/semiconductors and distribution channels and HARMAN's leading connected auto heritage, relationships, market knowledge and growing community of innovation partners. These include lane departure warning, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and 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.

HARMAN has been a subsidiary of Samsung since a year or so.
