Samsung Working to Make Trucks ‘Transparent’
Samsung is working on a technology to let people see through giant trucks on the road.
The Safety Truck prototype mounts a wireless camera on the front of the vehicle and livestreams the view onto a giant wall of four video screens on the back.
If you’re stuck behind a large truck, you’ll have a clear, real-time view of oncoming traffic. You can also see any obstacles or traffic that might otherwise catch you off guard.
Passing trucks is tricky, particularly on two-lane roads where the maneuver requires quickly dodging oncoming traffic. Samsung thinks this technology can save lives by reducing accidents.
