An anonymous reader writes: South Korean electronics giant Samsung has announced a new focus on developing driverless cars and infotainment systems in its attempt to compete with domestic rival LG in the automobile arena. The chip and smartphone company has placed executive VP Park Jong Hwan at the front of the push. The project will combine efforts from various technology units, including battery maker Samsung SDI and software service provider branch Samsung SDS. The sector is an opportunity to make up for Samsung's declining television sales, and a slowing smartphone business which is struggling to compete with fresher, cheaper models in China and India.
