Samsung Returns to Argentina to Test 'Transparent' Safety Truck
After a trial in 2015, Samsung is taking its "transparent" safety truck to the roads of Argentina for further testing and plans to roll it out across the globe later this year, according to a report by gizmag.com.
The safety truck is Samsung's solution to a problem experienced by many motorists who can't see around a large truck. With a front-mounted camera, the system captures the view of the road in front of the truck and streams it to a large display made up of four weatherproof monitors on the back, according to the report.
Samsung has now deployed the commercial version of the truck in La Plata, Argentina, for extensive testing. The location was chosen as a site due to the high number of traffic accidents that occur while motorists are overtaking one another on Argentinian roads. After four months of testing, the company will roll it out to the rest of the globe, according to the report.
