Safety Truck camera
When driving behind big semi-trailers, people regularly take risks. They often have to first move out from behind the truck to see if the road ahead is clear before passing. This is particularly dangerous on single-lane highways because such a maneuver can mean driving into the path of oncoming traffic. Now Samsung Electronics has come up with a way to help reduce this problem. By mounting cameras on the front of a truck and large screens on the rear. It will display to following drivers a clear view of the road ahead.
Like the See-Through System we wrote about in 2013, the prototype video system on “Safety Truck” comprises a front-mounted camera to capture view of the road ahead of the truck. Samsung’s solution transmits a continuous view of the road in front of the truck to exterior monitors mounted on the rear. It works better than wirelessly sending a live feed to a transparent LCD screen installed in a trailing driver’s car,
This view is enabled both day and night, and is said to have the potential to significantly reduce overtaking accidents, as well as providing trailing drivers with information on road hazards ahead well in time for them to react.
