[THE INVESTOR] Korea’s Land Ministry said on May 1 it has approved a test run of Samsung Electronics’ self-driving car currently under development.

The approval will allow Samsung to test run the self-driving car on actual roads.

Samsung Electronics plans to develop top-of-the-line sensors and computer modules backed by artificial intelligence and the deep-learning technologies to improve cars’ self-driving capabilities even in challenging weather conditions.

The ministry has issued nearly 20 approvals on test runs of self-driving cars since February 2016. Hyundai Motor earned the first approval.

Samsung’s self-driving automobile is a commercialized Hyundai vehicle equipped with the latest cameras and sensors.
