CAPE TOWN – Samsung has announced that they have launched a new Exynos Auto and Isocell Auto brands, which will manufacture processors and camera sensors for connected vehicles.

“Samsung’s new automotive brand solutions, Exynos Auto and Isocell Auto, bring Samsung’s market-proven technologies to automotive applications with enhanced features and durability required by the market,” said Kenny Han, vice president of Samsung’s Device Solutions Division in a statement.

“With fast telecommunication, accurate sensing and powerful processing capabilities, Samsung’s Auto-branded solutions will enable new driving experiences to next-generation smart vehicles.”

According to Samsung, the Exynos Auto range will comprise three chip series:

  •  Exynos Auto V for infotainment systems,
  •  Exynos Auto A chips for advanced driving assistance, and
  •  Exynos Auto T for telematics solutions.

Samsung’s Isocell Auto camera sensors allow for visibility in low-light environments and enable precise identification of objects.

“This allows, for example, vehicles to perceive road conditions or potential hazards even when driving through tunnels or other high-contrast environments,” Han said.

Isocell Auto sensors are available in three models, with resolutions ranging from 960p to 4K.

Samsung is demonstrating its Exynos Auto and Isocell Auto products at the International Suppliers Fair in Wolfburg, Germany, from 16-18 October 2018.
