Samsung Electronics was elected to a board membership position following elections held at the recent 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) general meeting . With the addition of Samsung, 5GAA will be better able to leverage the company’s industry leadership in telecommunications and recently acquired telematics and infotainment technologies.
Samsung had acquired Harman, a company with leadership in connected car technologies, in March of this year. Samsung expects that the combination of this expertise paired with its own experience in mobile devices, wireless networks and chipset development will serve to empower the 5GAA’s mission to accelerate the commercialization of communications solutions that improve mobility and safety on our transportation networks.
In addition to joining the 5GAA board, Samsung was also elected to serve as Vice-Chair of the 5GAA’s Working Group 4, which is responsible for exploring connected car-related standards and radio spectrum opportunities.
