According to science daily, Trucks are responsible for 4,500 deaths per year in the United States. Truck crashes also cause huge losses in productivity, property and personal injury. New research just published details how trucks account for 8% of US highway traffic, yet are involved in 11% of fatal road crashes.
But that is about to change thanks to Samsung that came up with an idea that instead of changing people’s lives, saves them.
When driving behind big semi-trailers, people regularly take risks overtaking them because they often have to first move out from behind the truck to see if the road ahead is clear before passing.
Now Samsung Electronics has come up with a way to help reduce this problem by mounting cameras on the front of a truck and large screens on the rear to display to following drivers a clear view of the road ahead.
