Anyone who's anyone in the tech or automotive worlds is working on an autonomous vehicle, a list that now includes Samsung.

South Korea's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport has approved testing of Samsung's self-driving vehicle on the country's roads, according to the YonHap news agency.

Before getting the permission from the Land Ministry in Korea, Samsung used to test their autonomous cars on a modified racetrack.

Samsung rival Apple Inc.is in the early phase of testing autonomous-vehicle technology on roads.

It appears Apple isn't the only phone maker interested in autonomous cars, as competitor Samsung has been approved to test out a self-driving vehicle of its own.

The report also adds that Samsung will develop sensors and computer modules and will use artificial intelligence and deep learning technologies to improve the abilities of the vehicle.

"We don't really want to build cars", Samsung's President and Chief Strategy Officer said in a recent interview.

In fact, Hyundai will play a role in Samsung's testing.

Samsung, known primarily for its smartphones, has said it is not trying to create an entire auto.

Should the technology industry play a role in the development of self-driving cars, or should it be left to carmakers? However, Samsung maintained that while it was looking to create technology which would allow self-driving capability, it was not looking to manufacture its own vehicle.

The Hyundai auto using Samsung's algorithms is equipped with sensors that recognize road conditions and obstacles, according to the ministry.

State news agency Yonhap notes that the move comes as the ministry has tried to ease self-driving regulations to boost industry growth.
