Samsung, primarily known for its smartphones, laptops, and tablets, created an 18-wheeler truck prototype that could prevent serious accidents, news sources report. Using its own technology, Samsung rigged the semi with four large screens on the back of the tractor trailer.
These screens create an image of the truck driver’s vantage point, allowing motorists to see if they can safely overtake the semi.
For many drivers, few things are as frustrating as getting stuck behind a slow-moving truck on a two-lane highway. With the help of Samsung’s front-view cameras, motorists can avoid maneuvering from their lane into oncoming traffic – a common danger on narrow highways.
Samsung’s initial “Safety Truck” design is no longer operational but proved successful in initial tests. For now, Samsung is partnering with several organizations to ensure the design is safe and usable.
