CES 2019: LG & Microsoft Partner For Self-Driving Cars

X

LG and Microsoft have announced a partnership to further grow LG’s advancements in autonomous vehicle and infotainment systems.

As part of the partnership, LG will revamp its existing digital platforms for the vehicle industry with Microsoft’s Azure cloud and artificial intelligence technologies.

Microsoft’s technology will be applied to LG’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Driver-Status Monitoring Camera (DSM) and Multi-Purpose Front Camera products.

Microsoft’s Azure Data Box service will allow self-driving software to grow smarter, faster by automatically uploading captured data to a library, including road and traffic patterns; as well as enabling the software to recognise and distinguish between pedestrians and other objects.

In addition to its ability to train AI self-driving software, Azure also features a voice-enabled Virtual Assistant Solution Accelerator with its AI services.

LG’s vehicle infotainment system will also get a boost via Microsoft’s Virtual Assistant Solution Accelerator which aims to allow drivers to check traffic conditions on the road, search for nearby restaurants, play music and more.

“Our expectation is that the combination of Microsoft’s advanced cloud infrastructure with LG’s fast-growing automotive components business will accelerate the self-driving auto industry as a whole,” said Kim Jin-Yong, president of LG’s Vehicle Component Solutions Company.

“Working together, we can empower automakers to deliver differentiated mobility experiences, create new services and revenue opportunities, and to build safer, more intelligent and more sustainable vehicles,” said Sanjay Ravi, general manager, the automotive industry at Microsoft.

No timeframe or rollout information was provided.
