    Samsung has been elected to a board membership position following elections at the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) general meeting earlier this month. 5GAA will now be able to better leverage Samsung's industry leadership in telecommunications as well as the telematics and infotainment technologies that it recently acquired through Harman International after Samsung's election to the board.

    Samsung joined the 5GAA back in January this year and it strives to support industry initiatives for standardizing approaches to research, develop, commercialize and develop technologies that will power connected cars.

    Director of 5G Technology Strategy within Samsung’s Next-Generation Communications Business Team Dr. Jaeweon Cho is Samsung's representative on the board. He says that this is a serious opportunity for both Samsung and its industry partners to leverage the work that it has been doing in spaces such as mobile networks, home appliances and chipsets and apply it to the expanding connected car industry.

    “I’m really excited to explore the potential opportunities here and help the 5GAA Board set its future direction. What the 5GAA and Samsung are working on will be globally transformational,” he added.

    Samsung has also been elected to serve as Vice-Chair of the 5GAA's Working Group 4 which is tasked with exploring car-related standards and radio spectrum opportunities.
