If you have ever travelled and had to take one of those single-lane (face-me-I-face-you) roads and found yourself behind a truck, you know the odd dance – inch out, drop right back, again and again – that you had to do trying to check for oncoming vehicular traffic in order to determine when to overtake the truck.
Well, Samsung got innovative and came up with something. The saying that a photograph speaks a thousand words is apt here. Have a look:
How this was pulled off? Easy: a camera at the front of the truck is connected to an electronic display mounted on the rear of the truck. It is so simple that you have to wonder why it hasn’t been done till now. Aaaaah! Something tells us that perhaps the extra cost of fixing up a truck like this might have something to do with that.
Samsung’s Safety truck was a demonstration, but hopefully, we will see this on production vehicles over time. In the meantime, enjoy this video of the rigged truck in action:
