VIDEO: Samsung Safety Truck Tested in Argentina

Samsung recently tested video-based safety technology that allows drivers behind a semi-trailer truck to see what’s ahead of the truck, according to a company blog.

The system uses a wireless camera attached to the front of the truck to generate a live video image on the rear of the truck. Samsung has tested the system in Argentina, which has many two-lane roads.

The system is designed to give drivers a better view when deciding whether to pass a big commercial truck, Samsung said.

Though the prototype truck is no longer operational, the company is pleased that preliminary tests verified that the technology works.

“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,” according to the blog. “For this, Samsung is working together with safe driving NGOs and the government.”

    This seems like a great idea.

    Just keep the doors from getting damages during the load and unloads and I see it working great.
