Tech giant Samsung has created a “transparent” truck to save lives

Tech giant Samsung has created a “transparent” truck to save lives

In an effort to save lives, Samsung has recently begun testing a new “transparent” transport truck that is expected to reduce road accidents related to load bearing trucks.

The truck has a camera on its front end which is projected on the back of the vehicle, allowing trailing drivers to see what is ahead of the truck. “This allows drivers to have a better view when deciding whether it is safe to overtake,” Samsung stated in a recent blog post.

This see-through technology is expected to not just reduce blind-spot related accidents, but also crashes caused by sudden breaking and animal crossings. The truck is equipped with night vision technology, rendering it effective for both day and night driving.

The vehicle’s prototype has been tested in Argentina, as their double lane roads have been the site of many road accidents. Although the truck has currently been taken off the roads, Samsung will continue its development in the hopes it can help make roads safer for everyone.
