Samsung Invents Screen to Semi Trucks to Show the Road Ahead

Have you heard how many deaths are on the road, because of overtaking? In the city where I live there were “only” just 4 major accidents that have involved around 11-12 vehicles in the past two days. And this has only happened on freeways, not in the cities and towns. Most overtaking happen, because of the speed of the trucks on the road, however, Samsung has found a great idea that comes with excellent technology to fix this problem. The Seoul based company has made a truck called “Safety Truck” with a Samsung logo on it (of course it is transporting Samsung goods), however, the best about the vehicle is that there is a huge display on the back of the truck, which shows real time footage what’s in front of the vehicle.

The New Technology

Showing a real time footage of what is in front of the vehicle on a screen, which is on the back of the truck is a great idea and it could be easily made by companies. You only need a display (a quite huge one), a good camera and accessories that will connect the two devices. This could save many people’s lives.

The “Safety Truck” project is currently in a “beta test” phase in Argentina. Why Argentina? Argentina has one of the world’s worst record regarding deaths on the road. A statistic shows that in the South American country at least 1 person dies per hour in traffic accidents. This is a horrible fact and there should be a fix for that, since this could cost tons of people’s lives and a whole lot of money and time. Why am I saying that? I’m saying that, because if an accident happens on the freeway then several tracks of the road are closed, which will cause huge traffic jams that will cost many person’s time.

So, to fix the Argentinian situation and to test a great new technology, Samsung have launched the first phase of the project in the Latin American country.

Personally, I think the idea is a great one, however, Samsung has to make sure before the departure of every truck that the system is working perfectly. Why is this needed? Just think, imagine that one of the screens on the back of a truck shows that there is nothing on the road in front of the vehicle, however, the display shows that, because of an error, and the motorist behind the truck tries to overtake and find out that there is a vehicle coming against him or her. I think that would result in a tragic accident. That’s why Samsung needs to double check its systems and devices before the departure phase.

Although the Safety Trucks are only present in Argentina, it seems that there is a big need of those vehicles in every part of the world now. We will see, however, if the project will be successful, how many countries will make an order from Samsung.
