Massive trucks on the road and trying to overtake them without crossing your fingers hoping not to die, is the worst. Samsung is trying to fix this issue with their new Safety Trucks. It is a relatively simple idea which involves a wireless camera mounted on the front bumper of the truck.
It transmits images of oncoming traffic to a multi-screen display mounted on the back door of the trailer. That way, the drivers behind the truck can know if it’s safe to pass the truck or not. This amazing new concept also has night vision mode.
Samsung trialed the truck in Argentina. It’s a country that has a lot of one-lane roads, so accidents caused by cars trying to overtake trucks adds significantly to the deaths in traffic collisions. While the trial truck has been retired, Samsung is now working with road safety organisations to improve the program.
