Connected and autonomous vehicles are revolutionizing the automotive industry.
From breakthroughs in advanced driver technology to cutting-edge infotainment systems,
the era of smart and seamless driving is here.

Autonomous driving

The automotive industry is going through a major transformation. ADAS features, supporting SAE Levels 2, 3, 4 of vehicle automation and employing vehicle to everything (V2X) communications, are enabling safe travel and are leading the way to full SAE Level 5 autonomous driving (AD). Given many of these applications are also safety-critical, our semiconductors meet the intrinsic reliability needed for the 15+ years average lifetime of a passenger vehicle.

Image and graphics processing

Samsung Foundry’s automotive solutions offer next-generation image processing and computer vision features and capabilities. Advances in digital cockpit and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) technology will deliver a more compelling driver and passenger experience.

Platform solutions

Samsung Foundry is playing a major role in the transformation of the automotive industry with its high performance platform solutions — from process technology to automotive development flows/
methodology to IP enablement and package development.

ADAS & Infotainment

Samsung ADAS solutions empower drivers to navigate a wide range of road conditions while
providing the connectivity needed to drive immersive
in-vehicle infotainment systems.

  • Image sensors

    Enhancing driver safety and low light visibility with high-quality automotive image sensors

  • ADAS

    Advanced driver assistance solutions for autonomous driving and vehicle-to-everything communications

  • Infotainment
