South Korea: SK invests in self-driving car tech

Another Korean conglomerate has taken a deeper interest in autonomous vehicles, following the leads of Hyundai Motor, Samsung and Naver.

SK Telecom is teaming up with U.S.-based Nvidia to develop core technology for self-driving cars, according to the leading Korean mobile carrier Sunday.

Based in California, Nvidia developed the world’s first graphics processing unit, which can manipulate computer graphics and process images, including 3-D images. The company manufactures high-tech GPUs for autonomous vehicles based on its technology in deep learning and artificial intelligence.

SK Telecom has the largest market share in Korea’s mobile phone industry. Its interest in self-driving cars is based on its connectivity and the technology to precisely pin-point a driver’s location in Korea.
