BMW and Samsung

Although the Ford-Google partnership is getting a lot of attention, a different, similar partnership is also in the works.

Business Korea reports that BMW, Samsung, and Nuance Communications are partnering to develop “the brains” of future autonomous vehicles.

The initial report is light on the details, although it does note that, “Samsung Venture Investment Corp. made investments worth billions of won in the U.S.-based connected car startup Vinli.”

To be clear, Vinli currently seems to be an Indiegogo project to create a “smart car”.
