Savari has technology on 5G edge and vehicle-to-everything communications (V2X), Harman said.
The company offers V2X sensor solutions and edge-based analytics for automotive and smart infrastructure, including vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicle-to-phone for pedestrians and bicyclists, vehicle-to-vehicle and infrastructure-to-phone. Its hardware and software are radio complaint, Harman said.
Its software and hardware technology will enhance Harman’s comprehensive automotive telematics and advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) capabilities, and expand the company’s strengths in 5G edge, multi-access edge computing (MEC) and smart infrastructure solutions, Harman said.
Samsung didn’t announce the terms of the acquisition. Savari employees will be integrated into Harman’s automotive division.
The Korean tech giant wholly-owns Harman, which it acquired for US$8 billion in 2017.
