Samsung Electronics subsidiary Harman and Groupe PSA are to conduct a comprehensive analysis, design and feasibility study on advanced security solutions for next-generation connected and autonomous vehicles.
The collaboration will focus on connected technologies for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, with the companies working together to build a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy for Groupe PSA’s next-generation connected and autonomous vehicles platform.
The announcement marks a two-year joint work relationship between the two businesses, spanning multiple projects – from analysing potential threats, through security design, to a feasibility study of advanced intrusion detection systems for ADAS, autonomous and next-generation vehicle network architectures.
“With more connectivity and technology advancements in the car come incredible safety enhancements but also potential cybersecurity risks,” said Eric Dequi, senior expert in EE architecture and cybersecurity for connected cars at Groupe PSA.
“Groupe PSA has been focusing on cyber for the last five years, launching a partnership with the Harman automotive cybersecurity team to define the necessary cybersecurity measures for our next-generation architecture. We have implemented and evaluated Harman’s Ecushield solution on a Peugeot car to establish an intrusion detection system proof-of-concept. This level of collaboration has been essential for Groupe PSA since 2013 and we will continue to incorporate cybersecurity technologies into the whole lifecycle of our products.”
