South Korean tech giant Samsung has received approval to test its self driving cars on public roads in its home country. The country’s Land Ministry gave the nod for a test run today. Until now, the company was testing its autonomous car technology on a modified race track.
“Samsung Electronics plans to develop top-of-the-line sensors and computer modules backed by artificial intelligence and the deep-learning technologies to improve cars self-driving capabilities even in challenging weather conditions,” a report out of South Korea says.
The firm is currently using a Hyundai car (featuring the latest cameras and sensors) as a prototype vehicle. Like Apple and Google, Samsung also has no plans to get into car manufacturing – the company has already confirmed this.
