Overtake trucks without having to look for oncoming traffic, thanks to Samsung

Samsung wants to make the roads safer, particularly when it comes to overtaking large trucks.

The company has developed a system which employs four large-screen monitors and a camera fitted to a big rig – allowing drivers behind the heavy vehicle to see oncoming traffic and decide whether it is safe to overtake.

The camera is mounted to the front of the truck, and sends its feed to outdoor monitors which are fitted to the rear of the vehicle’s trailer.

Samsung said it is planning to get regulatory approval for the safety system.

The video below shows the technology in action.
