Six months after creating a separate team for making automotive parts, Samsung has created a task force to develop chips for self-driving cars. The new group is said to have experts from the company’s chip division that designs processors and image sensors for cameras and TVs.

Samsung has made a big push towards connected appliances and connected cars in the recent months. Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology had said last month that it would hire researchers to develop autonomous vehicle technologies such as 3D mapping, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.

The South Korean electronics giant is the sole supplier of batteries for BMW’s electric and plug-in hybrid cars. The company also recently secured to supply chips for Audi’s upcoming vehicles. The research center that is affiliated with Samsung is trying to make technologies that could be commercialized within five to ten years.
