Samsung Announces DRVLINE™ Platform

Samsung Announces DRVLINE™ Platform

Samsung wants to control your vehicle. It's called the MoodRoof, and it's actually part of the bigger Moodscape entertainment setup. "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 auto of tomorrow, today". What does DRVLINE offer?

Samsung and Harman claim the system has been designed in such a way to allow it to be scaled up from Level 3 autonomous technology to Level 4 and then eventually Level 5; the highest rating for driving with human interaction.

"The digital cockpit technology that can be seen from (the) Maserati clearly shows how Samsung and Harman have created synergies", said Harman CEO Dinesh Paliwal at the briefing. It also teased that it has "already signed with a leading European automaker" as the first customer for the solution; the identity of that automaker will be revealed at Samsung's and Harman's CES booths.

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 past year.

A new telematics solution along with the industry first automotive-grade 5G-ready connectivity solution. The industry has made incredible advances in automation, yet in-car compute is still a long way from approximating the power of our brains. Unveiled today at CES 2018 are a host of unique connected vehicle solutions that support HARMAN and Samsung's joint mission to become the leader in connectivity and autonomous driving: connecting the lives of people, whether at home, on the go, or together in the auto. The platform offers an in-car screen that can display vital vehicle information and features.

Drvline is an open and modular platform for autonomous driving.

It also pairs with Samsung's Android operating system, allowing smartphone users to have all their subscription services, such as Spotify and Audible, seamlessly integrated into the car's infotainment system. The $8 billion deal to buy Harman in March past year was the biggest overseas acquisition ever made by a South Korean company, and it's now starting to look like a very wise move.
