Samsung allowed to test self-driving vehicles in California

Samsung has been awarded a license in the state of California to test autonomous vehicles. The giant has already gotten the green light to test self-driving vehicles in South Korea, but its California license means the tech giant is likely looking to start testing its technology stateside as well.

In a statement, a company spokesperson confirmed that it's participating in California's Autonomous Vehicle Tester Program. However, he clarified that the Korean conglomerate still has "no plans to enter the car-manufacturing business."

"As a global leader in connectivity, memory, and sensor technology, Samsung Electronics looks forward to participating in California's Autonomous Vehicle Tester Program and joining in the pursuit of a smarter, safer transportation future. While we have no plans to enter the car-manufacturing business, we are excited to help develop and deliver the next generation of automotive innovation."

Samsung is thought to use Hyundai cars equipped with its own sensor package, similar to how Apple has outfitted Lexus RX450h SUVs for its autonomous testing. Samsung's vehicles will likely be used to collect valuable on-road data to start, which will then be used to hone its driverless system.
