During the Consumer Electronics Show 2018, Samsung and Harman together unveiled an advanced automotive platform, or "digital cockpit", the first fruits of their joint development of automotive electronics technology since the Korean tech giant bought Harman in March a year ago.

Each new solution was made possible through the HARMAN-Samsung alliance that leverages Samsung's global scale, R&D capabilities, dominance in mobile/TV/semiconductors and distribution channels and HARMAN's leading connected vehicle heritage, relationships, market knowledge and growing community of innovation partners.

Harman thinks riding in autonomous cars will make you sleepy and want to recline your seat as much as possible - and in that moment, you'll realize the equipment manufacture has actually fitted a huge digital display in place of a normal roof.

They demonstrated the system by integrating it into a Maserati luxury vehicle during a press briefing on January 11 at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on the sidelines of the CES.

Harman is best known for its variety of premium audio brands, with some of the most advanced automotive sound systems on the market.

The Digital Cockpit can incorporate any devices that are a part of the driver's connected lifestyle.

Software to control the air-conditioner, music and lighting is operated through Samsung's artificial intelligence technology Bixby. This technology is incorporated into the DRVLINE platform.

At CES, the company also showed off new automotive solutions that it is offering with its subsidiary Harman.

A new ADAS product that uses the platform will feature lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, collision warning, and pedestrian warning algorithms.

Samsung notes that its new TCU has been built to work with existing 4G Cat 16 (Gigabit LTE) networks, but the same platform will be able to connect to higher-bandwidth 5G networks in the future.

"Together with Samsung, we have increased innovation speed through scale, resources and competencies to help automakers focus on the car's evolution from device-centric to experience centric", said Dinesh Paliwal, HARMAN President and CEO. In other words, TCU will serve as an individual car's connection point to the larger traffic network.
