Companies promise to automakers in to create a " reliable and protected data center for machines with high degree of automation and self-controlled machines. "
TO word, LG Electronics has long been interested in unmanned vehicles. Together with Qualcomm company founded a research laboratory in Seoul, where they are working to improve the safety of an unmanned vehicle. Exactly at LG Electronics developed technology V2X (that the very link between the machines) and develop stereoscopic cameras for Mercedes-Benz .
Recall, cartographic service HERE - a former division of Nokia, which in 2015 bought a consortium of of the three largest German car manufacturers - Audi, BMW and Daimler.
