Samsung Electro-Mechanics automotive solutions are built on wide range of automotive grade products such as Viewing Cameras, Sensing Cameras, Interior Cameras, Wireless Connectivity Modules and Wireless Chargers. In addition, Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors are found in all electronic circuits inside the car.
Together, these products enable solutions for a seamless user experience and autonomous driving. A seamless user experience is created by combining the mobile experience with the traditional driving experience. This generates innovative use cases such as Smart Key Access / Driver / Passenger Authentication / Wireless Charging / Mirroring / In-Vehicle Office and In-Vehicle Shopping.
For future car and ride sharing services, cars should dynamically identify its owner or customer, using smart access solutions. Using devices such as Smart Keys, cars can be summoned to an exact pickup point. The car then authenticates identity, using Side Camera for face recognition, or using key fobs, or smart watch.
As smartphones are at the center of the seamless car experience, Wireless Charging Pads enable convenient mobile charging and syncing.
As a result, a personalized experience is realized by integrating the driver’s social presence into the car’s dashboard. Video calls are powered by Video Conferencing Cameras concealed in the cabin interior. This allows the driver to increase productivity, turning the car into a mobile office. Before arriving to a destination, the driver can browse for and reserve an available parking spot in advance. Then, the driver can make an In-Vehicle Payment via an Interior Camera equipped with IRIS detection algorithms.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics powers autonomous driving solutions with it’s wide range of camera products such as Viewing Cameras, Sensing Cameras, Interior Cameras. These cameras can show and sense the environment in the rear, front and side of the car in conditions such as Backwards reversing from drive ways, Pedestrian detection at crosswalks and Blind spot detection in the event of lane changes. For level 4 autonomy, the car must be highly confident that the driver is in full attention state before switching driving mode by using Interior Cameras to detect Eye gaze direction, Head pose and Location of the hands on the steering wheel. Wireless connectivity modules enable Vehicle to Vehicle and Vehicle to Infrastructure communication. A signal from the traffic light triggers autonomous cars to slow down ahead of the intersection. This signal is then relayed from vehicle to vehicle to ensure smooth and safe car stop for cars coming from behind. Vehicle to Vehicle communication enables other solutions such as Forward Collision Warning,
Blind Intersection, Do Not Pass Warning and Platooning. Additionally Vehicle to infrastructure communications enables Traffic Signal Priority, Discovery of Parking and Charging Areas, Vulnerable Road User Alerts and Emergency Vehicle Alerts.
