While traveling along two-lane roads in Pennsylvania, many passenger car drivers become frustrated when they wind up behind a slow-moving truck. Drivers who are in a hurry might cause an accident by attempting to pass a truck at the wrong time. Samsung has developed a solution to this problem that could prevent these types of accidents.
The 'safety truck" prototype that Samsung developed is equipped with a wireless camera mounted onto its grill and screens mounted onto its back. On four large screens, live video of what the truck driver is seeing gets streamed in real time for the benefit of drivers behind the truck. By paying attention to this video stream, a driver can wait until there are no oncoming vehicles to accelerate and pass the truck.
