"It's time to communicate our intent to enter the autonomous driving market," Young Sohn, the company's president and chief strategy officer, told Reuters. Harman, best known for its consumer audio speakers, derives 65 percent of sales from its automotive business, supplying navigation services, on-board entertainment systems and vehicle networks that put it at the intersection of connected cars and mobile networks. In recent months, Samsung has secured licenses for autonomous driving pilot projects in South Korea and California. Over the next two to three years, the new Samsung Automotive Innovation Fund will invest in a range of connected car areas including sensors, machine vision, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, cloud services, mobile connectivity, automotive-grade safety and security, the company said.


The road to artificial intelligence in mobility--smart moves required

One clear finding of the research bodes well for AI's development: consumers expect AI to have a large impact and enable broader change (Exhibit 1). And AD features are so important to consumers that 65 percent would switch OEMs for better AD functionality; that figure exceeds 90 percent for young consumers and those living in large cities. While machine-learning technology can already run in the back-end environment (sufficient computing power and appropriate hardware exist), embedding it requires technological hardware advancements and connection solutions. Furthermore, a majority of consumers are looking to car manufacturers to lead the development of autonomous functions and expect them, rather than tech players, to bring those to market--interestingly, particularly in China (Exhibit 6).

In recent months, Samsung has secured licenses for autonomous driving pilot projects in South Korea and California. Samsung was granted a permit to test cars on roads in California at the end of August, just four months after arch rival Apple Inc received its own permit.

Samsung Invests in Autonomous Driving

U.S. News

The new autonomous driving investment comes after the South Korean company completed its acquisition of Harman, which makes car navigation systems and technology for cars to communicate with each other and infrastructure. Samsung also announced that it has created a business unit within Harman to oversee autonomous driving.

Samsung Electronics Co. says it will spend 75 million euro ($89 million) in TTTech, a Vienna, Austria-based company that provides technologies for auto networks and safety controls to Audi cars and others. The Thursday announcement to invest in a partner company of Audi AG comes as the South Korean company completed its acquisition of Harman. Samsung said it created a business unit at Harman to be tasked with autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems. Samsung's investment in TTTech is the first investment from its $300 million fund to strengthen its technology pool for autonomous driving, such as artificial intelligence and security.


IoT and Machine Learning: A Networking Perspective - DZone IoT

The algorithms that drive behavior require data. This means basic policy handling at the edge, which essentially means that we will have to solve policy management as well. People can conceive of applications that are extremely local in their behavior, and these might not need centralized data to get the benefit of a distributed set of data sources. But from an infrastructure point of view, I think the intersection is really going to be secure data transport from IoT gateways to machine learning clouds, which could be centralized or distributed.


SK Telecom reduces latency to 2 milliseconds for 5G

ZDNet

The latency between handsets and base stations in current LTE networks is around 25ms or under. In latency of 25ms in LTE networks, self-driving cars running at 150 kilometers per hour will travel an extra metre after receiving the stop signal, the telco said, while at 2ms, the car will move 8 centimetres before beginning to slow down. In February, SK Telecom successfully reached 3.6Gbps data transfer rate on a connected car running at 170 kilometers per hour. The telco said at the time that 5G is a must for connected cars as the super-fast data transfer rate will allow services that prevent accidents.


Samsung secures self-driving car permit in California

It's key for both safety features and for implementing autonomous driving capabilities. For instance, its direct communications capabilities improve a vehicle's situational awareness by detecting and exchanging information using low latency transmissions. With integrated global navigation satellite system (GNSS) support, it offers precise positioning for vehicles -- a feature that's key for safety and basic functionality of driverless cars. With extended communication capabilities and precise positioning, Malladi explained, a car will eventually be able to communicate not just with the cars next to it, but with all cars within a certain range.

In this model, human employees augment and assist AI software leveraging its natural language processing (NLG), analytics, image recognition or other ML functionality to run business processes and make important decisions. Companies can also leverage the power of complex image recognition software to automatically assess the performance of employees in contexts where it can not be properly measured by human supervisors. AI software is in charge of important business decisions, planning and performance assessment in many on-demand mobility and delivery services that make up the so called gig economy.
