Las Vegas, Jan. 8 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co. and its American subsidiary Harman have introduced their latest digital vehicle cockpit system at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which kicked off on Tuesday.

The platform offers Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to improve the connectivity, safety and convenience of vehicles and is expected to be available in cars around 2021, the South Korean tech behemoth said.

"We have won contracts from carmakers in China and Europe," said Park Jong-hwan, the executive vice president who heads Samsung's automotive components team. "(The system) is expected to be installed in cars made in China in 2021 or before."

The 2019 version has more displays -- three to six of them -- delivering tailored infotainment options to more passengers.

The displays show crucial driving information, offer functions such as navigation, phone calls, media and others, and support Samsung's virtual assistant Bixby and SmartThings services to improve connectivity.

The digital cockpit also supports car-to-home interactions, allowing drivers to check what's inside their fridge or to start up the washing machine -- all from the driver's seat.

In March 2017, Samsung acquired Harman International Industries to accelerate the development of its automotive and connected technologies.
