Tinuku Samsung has permission to test autonomous cars on public streets

Samsung is rumored to have gained the right of authority in South Korea to test autonomous cars on public streets. Permission is granted in order to facilitate the regulation of a car without a driver to encourage the growth of industry and technology.

"Autonomous cars use the latest technology collaboration from the automotive sector, artificial intelligence, communication and information," the ministry said, quoted by The Korea Herald, Tuesday, May 2, 2017.

Technical information about autonomous cars from Samsung is still not widely known to the public until now. Speculation has emerged that the company is using Hyundai's built-in commercial car base with a series of cameras and sensors.

Samsung is also rumored to use computer modules to run artificial intelligence technology and deep learning to support automatic control for trips that explore and navigate bad weather.

Samsung has announced the development of autonomous car technology in 2015, but does not make the car itself. The development team is more focused on the components needed to support autonomous cars.

A number of other technology giants such as Google, Uber, Apple, Bosch and others have also been known to develop autonomous car technology, although it is unclear who will be the first to be ready to bring the product to the market.
