Harman brings interesting or futile technologies to CES

Harman brings interesting or futile technologies to CES

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. Samsung and Harman have also unveiled their new Digital Cockpit platform. It has to be said though, that Samsung isn't the only game in town when it comes to the digital cockpit as Byton was showing a similar system at the show only a day earlier.

They demonstrated the system by integrating it into a Maserati luxury vehicle during a press briefing on January 11 at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on the sidelines of the CES. The company is all about connectivity as far as automobiles, consumer durables and enterprise products are concerned.

Harman said the user interface of the digital cockpit is based on Samsung's Galaxy smartphone series, with two Samsung organic light-emitting diode panels and one quantum-dot light-emitting diode panel in front of the driver and passenger seats. It also allows drivers to control home devices through Samsung's integrated IoT service Smart Things.

It also uses Samsung's Bixby voice assistant, which offers automotive-optimised control functions such as moving the QLED display or changing the colours of ambient lighting.

Samsung has announced its DRVLINE autonomous driving platform. Samsung has basically positioned itself to be the "go-to" partner for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) providers in the autonomous driving market. The jointly-developed system includes a forward facing camera that incorporates forward collision warning, pedestrian warning, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

Samsung notes that its new TCU has been built to work with existing 4G Cat 16 (Gigabit LTE) networks, but the same platform will be able to connect to higher-bandwidth 5G networks in the future. We also heard some details about Samsung's Digital Cockpit. In other words, TCU will serve as an individual car's connection point to the larger traffic network.
