Tata Motors and Samsung have entered into a collaboration under which the South Korean electronics major will provide in-car infotainment systems to the Indian auto maker.

Tata Motors would launch passenger vehicles next year equipped with Samsung’s ‘Drive Link Application’ on MirrorLink technology that will help driver to navigate, answer calls and access Internet and music. Drive Link is an application which is designed to use smart phones and tablets while on move.

Putting it in simple terms, the Drive Link app basically connects the car with Samsung Galaxy devices via 3G connectivity and this results in ability to play music, take phone calls and even navigate on the road with help of the in-car Samsung devices. The feature will also offer on-board diagnostics and vehicle lifestyle management information, according to the company.

“We will introduce passenger cars in the market equipped with the technology within the next year,” said Ranjit Yadav, president- Passengers Vehicles Unit, Tata Motors at the Auto Expo 2014.

Apparently, Tata Motors and Samsung have been working on the said project for last six months. Interestingly, Samsung has a similar collaboration with BMW on global level for the same and its partnership with Tata Motors is a first in the Indian auto market.
