Samsung testing self-driving cars

Samsung has gained a license to test self-driving cars in California, making them the latest big technology company to be working on a self-driving solution. The self-driving market is obviously a huge market and everyone wants a bite. BBC has the story.

The permit means its driverless vehicles will be able to travel on the same routes as cars driven by humans.

The firm has said it had no plans to make its own driverless cars, but instead will make control systems for so-called autonomous vehicles.

In May, Samsung got permission to test self-driving cars in South Korea fitted with its own sensors and software.

The company has taken several different steps recently to bolster its self-driving car technology division.
