Samsung to Join Automotive Industry with Electronic Parts

One of South Korea’s largest electronics players is entering into the ever-growing industry of smart mobility. Samsung will initially build products for infotainment and autonomous driving vehicles. Samsung is the latest to enter the market along with Apple, Google, and LG Electronics. Currently there are between 80 to 100 processors in a vehicle depending on its sophistication; as regulations mandating certain technologies become more prevalent, this number is likely to increase. According to recent reports, this market (composed of automotive software, services and components) is worth an estimated $500 billion. A Thomson Reuters report shows that Samsung has been investing in automotive electronics R&D since as early as 2010. In the future, vehicles will likely have the ability to communicate with one another as well as larger infrastructures.
