Shaping the world of tomorrow, today

We see tomorrow, today. We're focusing beyond the horizon and pushing exciting developments in many key areas of technology.

Intelligence for Smarter Health

The Samsung Digital Health Initiative leverages an array of hardware and software technologies designed to bring developers, healthcare professionals, academics and health enthusiasts together to create a healthier world. The key component of the Digital Health Initiative is a new open reference design platform tailored to take advantage of the latest sensors, behavioral algorithms, battery technologies and displays. This platform is attracting the brightest minds and the most creative innovators to work with Samsung to accelerate innovation in personal health technology.


Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center and Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences collaborate to combine IoT and nutrition science to create insights for healthy living


Samsung Simband is not a product, but a reference design. It's our concept of what a smart health device should be. Devices based on the Simband platform will be able to gather vital diagnostic information, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Now, for the first time you will be able to ask specific wellness questions and get clear, insightful answers direct from the source: you.



We are looking for forward-thinking startups, researchers and developers. We have created a playground where we share the latest innovations and changes to our developer platforms. Be one of the first to join and give personal health a hearty push into the future.

Smart Lighting

The way we use light is changing. It's growing beyond independent and isolated fixtures. Light is, and always has been, intrinsic to the environment and the cities where we live and work. In the interconnected IoT world, this means everything from HVAC, traffic and security to the people around us. It's time to think of light as part of a fully connected platform that, among other things, delivers data when and where it's needed most to make decision that increase safety and improve utilization.

Samsung’s Smart Lighting Platform fosters an open ecosystem, giving partners the building blocks to quickly and easily create smart lighting systems through plug-and-play LED modules, multiple options for wired and wireless connectivity, flexible APIs for developers, an open multi-sensor protocol and easy integration with SAMIIO, our data exchange platform. Together, we can create new lighting solutions that are more responsive, safer and smarter.
