Samsung See Through Trucks

Transparent Trucks to Improve Road Safety

Have you ever been stuck behind a slow moving truck, unsure whether you can pass because your view of the road ahead is obscured? To overcome this potentially dangerous situation, Samsung has unveiled its “Safety Truck,” which allows you to ‘see-through’ the truck to the traffic ahead.
 
Their Safety Trucks are equipped with a camera on the front of the vehicle, which shows its footage on display panels mounted on the rear of the truck. Drivers are therefore able to see the road ahead, to decide whether it’s safe to overtake the vehicle or not. As a driver’s ability to see the road ahead is improved significantly, the Safety Truck may also help reduce the risk of accidents caused by sudden braking or animals crossing the road.
 
So far Samsung Argentina has built a prototype truck, and has confirmed the technology works. The next step is to perform further testing to obtain the necessary permits and approvals. For this, Samsung is working together with safe driving non-government organisations and the Argentinian government.
