Jan 10, 2018

Samsung Electronics introduced its new concept self-driving solution called ‘DRVLINE’ platform at ‘CES 2018’ that is being held in Las Vegas.
Samsung Electronics’ DRVLINE’ platform allows automotive manufacturers and mobility service companies to select and apply sensors such as LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), radar, and camera, which are core elements for self-driving technology, parts, and software to their cars and services according to their needs. Not only is it open but it is also expandable as it can be modularized.
This platform is applied with Samsung Electronics’ latest AI (Artificial Intelligence) and algorithm technologies and parts. It can also implement level 3, level 4, and level 5 of self-driving standards out of level 1 to level 5 self-driving standards set by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers).

This platform is also applied with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) front camera system, which was co-developed with Harman that was acquired by Samsung Electronics in 2017. It obeys new American evaluation program on new vehicles along with LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System), FCW (Forward Collision Warning), Pedestrian Detection, and AEB (Auto Emergency Brake) which will be applied in the future.
“Not only do future cars will change how we drive but they will also innovatively change streets and societies.” said President Son Young-kwon of Samsung Electronics’ SSIC (Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center). “Through DRVLINE platform and cooperation with relevant industries, we are going to continue to provide new experiences on driving.”
On this day, Samsung Electronics also introduced its self-driving-related partners such as TT Tech, AImotive, and Renovo Auto for software-related business, Graphcore, ThinCi, Infineon for computing-related business, and Autotalks, Balance, Quanergy, TetraVue, Oculii, and Innoviz for sensor-related business.
