See in front of HGVs with Samsung safety kit

Last updated:

One of the most frustrating things when driving is being stuck behind a huge HGV with no idea of seeing what is in front of it in order to know when you can overtake it.

Samsung has introduce a 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 help drivers behind to make safer decisions about when – and when not – to overtake.

The kit is currently on trial in Argentina currently, a country notorious for its long single carriageway roads , and could help save hundreds of lives, boosting safety during day and night.

Hopefully, this tech is rolled out across lorries around the world.
