Samsung recently announced the creation of an innovative ‘Safety Truck’ that is designed with a giant video display on the back. The video display allows drivers to see what is going on in the area of the road surrounding the truck, so they can pass with caution and confidence, instead of going in blind and making a risky maneuver.
The project was inspired by the high rate of fatal car crashes in Argentina, that are actually caused by people trying to pass cars and trucks in blind spots or with blocked view.
