Samsung Attaches Screen to Semi-Truck to Show the Road Ahead
In the coming weeks, Samsung is expected to launch the Safety Truck, a semi-truck with the goal to reduce head-on collisions. By installing a front-mounted camera on the front of each truck, Samsung‚Äôs vehicles will give drivers behind the truck a clear view of the road ahead. Additionally, to make passing safer, drivers will be able to see any obstacles that could impede their progress. This will reduce the need for emergency braking and give drivers more time to react. With back-up cameras already standard in most new vehicles, this innovation by Samsung may signal an up-and-coming technology trend in the trucking industry.
