Trying to overtake a truck that’s may be driving relatively slowly, can become a task – one due to its humongous size, and second because you cannot see what is happening in front of the truck or if there is any vehicle coming from the opposite direction.
Well, Samsung has introduced a see-through ‘Safety Truck’ that consists of a wireless camera attached to the front of the truck, which is connected to a video wall made out of four exterior monitors located on the back of the truck. The monitors give drivers behind the truck a view of what is going on ahead, even in the dark of night.
This allows drivers to have a better view when deciding whether it is safe to overtake the truck. Also, it may help reduce the risk of accidents caused by sudden braking or animals crossing the road.
Currently, the prototype truck built is not operational. So far, Samsung has been able to confirm that the technology works and that this idea can definitely save the lives of many people.
According to Samsung, the next step is to perform the corresponding tests in order to comply with the existing national protocols and obtain the necessary permits and approvals.
