The number of annoying and potentially dangerous situations that can crop up while driving are almost too numerous to mention, but Samsung is testing out a new approach to its delivery trucks that aims to remedy at least one of them.
Trying to pass a big transport truck on a two-way road can be like a game of peek-a-boo, poking your bumper out in to the oncoming lane to see if there’s time to pass this lumbering auto monstrosity. But it’s also, for obvious reasons, a dangerous driving practice. In Argentina, Samsung launched a fleet of Safety Trucks that use a built-in wireless camera on the front bumper, that also features a night-vision mode, and four outdoor screens mounted on the back to show drivers behind the truck what traffic looks like ahead.
It’s a very cool idea, but likely cost prohibitive to roll out on a much larger scale.
