Video: Samsung safety kit displays road ahead on back of HGVs
There's nothing more frustrating than getting stuck behind a slow HGV on a twisty road and never quite being able to see if it's safe to overtake.
Tech giant Samsung, however, has a very simple solution to this problem, with kit that displays an image of the road ahead of the lorry on the back of the trailer. Featuring a wireless camera fitted to the front of the lorry cab that relays a live feed to large trailer-mounted screens, this tech should help drivers behind to make safer decisions about when – and when not – to overtake.
On trial in Argentina currently – a country notorious for its long single carriageway roads – this tech could help save hundreds of lives, boosting safety during day and night. We eagerly wait to see if this tech finds its way onto lorries across the UK.
