    Amazing truck technology could save lives

    • Overtaking a truck is one of the most dangerous manoeuvres in modern driving, with the sheer size of lorries obscuring the view ahead and potentially leaving other drivers frustrated. But Korean technology firm Samsung has showcased a remarkable solution to the problem that could reduce collisions and injuries.
    Inspired by the shocking statistic that almost one person dies every hour on the roads of Argentina, Samsung has created the Safety Truck - which uses its expertise with digital displays to give road users behind a clear view of the road ahead.

    • Cameras mounted on the front of the truck pass a signal wirelessly to four screens on the rear of the truck’s load area, allowing drivers to pass with greater safety.
    The Safety Truck may be a technical demonstration rather than an immediate solution to the problem, but with the cost of hardware falling all the time it could become a life-saving addition to new HGVs in just a few years.
