AutoComplete: Samsung just purchases a large chunk of the premium audio industryMercedes teases the Maybach S650 Cabriolet, and Google teaches its self-driving cars how to make three-point turns.
[MUSIC] Today is November 14th, and here's what's making news on Roadshow. Samsung just spent eight billion dollars purchasing Harmon. A tier one supplier focused on in-car audio, infotainment, and car connectivity. Harmon owns several big name car audio systems, including Mark Levinson, Bang & Olufsen, and Revel. Samsung is hopeful that the acquisition will allow the company to speed up telematics and autonomous car development, as well. Mercedes has a whale of a convertible coming down the pipeline. The Mercedes Mayback S650 Cabriolet takes a traditional S-class drop-top and loads it with as many ultra posh appointments as possible. It's likely to pack a V-12 powertrain and only 300 will be built. The whole kit and caboodle will be unveiled at the LA Auto show later this week. Google taught this autonomous car how to make a three-point turn In the companies mostly self driving car updates, Google discussed how it programmed algorithms to mimic human behavior when making tight turns, in order to make the car feel as natural as possible for its occupants. There might be a more efficient way of turning round but Google believes it's more important to make the occupants feel like a human is behind the wheel.
