Samsung received approval to test its self-driving cars

Samsung just received approval from the South Korean government to test its self-driving cars on public roads, The Korea Herald reports.
While Hyundai’s vehicles will be used for Samsung’s development, Hyundai is hard at work on its own solution.
After it acquired Harman last year, Samsung said autonomous cars would become one of its top priorities.
Outfitting an existing car with self-driving tech is a common move for suppliers, which only seek to make the hardware to enable autonomous driving, so it can then be sold to automakers.
Delphi uses an Audi Q5 for its development, while Waymo uses a fleet of Chrysler Pacifica minivans.
