Samsung Working To Make Trucks & Heavy Vehicles ‘Transparent’ To Ensure Road Safety

Back in 2009, Russian design house Art Lebedev introduced the dramatically titled Transparentius concept for improving road safety. It was remarkably simple: put a camera on the front of large, slow-moving trucks and connect it to video displays on the back, thereby informing trailing drivers whether it’s safe to overtake the big rig. That’s the exact same idea that Samsung is now pursuing with a new prototype truck. Making use of its abundance of outdoor displays, the Korean company has stitched together a video wall of four displays at the rear of the truck, which transmits video captured by a wireless camera at the front. The Logical Indian community appreciates this innovative approach by Samsung!
We bring you the reason as why this was a much needed initiative. Watch the video below.

This is why I always warn people…This is why I always warn people… about changing lanes at the last second.
