Samsung is a major manufacturer of some of today’s leading technologies,
including giant-screen TV’s, cell phones, and full entertainment
centers. One of the latest technologies that the company is working on
is a wireless camera that takes real-time video of the road ahead and
projects it onto the back of an eighteen-wheeler vehicle. This will allow
for greater visibility for drivers stuck behind these large vehicles.
Details About Samsung Displays
The screens will display a view of the road in front of the truck, giving
drivers behind a view of the oncoming traffic, as well as any potential
road hazards or obstacles. This can be especially advantageous for certain
maneuvers, such as passing trucks on a two-lane road where visibility
is limited and accidents are much more likely to occur.
Here are some more details about these new displays:
- A screen will be attached to the truck’s rear, displaying footage
from a built-in wireless camera that is mounted to the truck’s front.
- The camera will capture real-time video of the road, allowing drivers to
see any obstacles or road hazards, including other vehicles and debris.
- Trucks will be designed with safety as the number-one priority, paired
with technological advancements that serve this purpose.
Ultimately, Samsung’s goal is to reduce the number of collisions
between trucks and other motor vehicles. One of the largest reasons why
truck accidents occur is due to driver error, such as sudden braking or
swerving, dangerous maneuvers, or failure to check blind spots.
New Technology Aims to Reduce Accidents
While the displays are still in the design and development stages, some
call into question whether or not the technology will be beneficial for
drivers or not. Will these be a distraction or will they be an asset?
Will drivers be more focused on the flashy technology, rather than improving
road safety? These and many more questions will need to be addressed,
and Samsung will likely need to conduct rigorous testing before the final
product is ready to unveil. However, the notion of reducing the number
of road accidents through technology is certainly a step in the right
