The rate of traffic accidents in Argentina is horrific; statistically speaking almost one person dies every hour, with 80% happening on roads and mainly while people try overtaking other vehicles.
While overtaking a sedan or SUV-sized vehicle can be a rather simple task, trucks are a different story. Due to their size, trucks are not only physically harder to overtake but they also block the view ahead for the drivers trying to pass them.
Samsung launched a prototype solution hoping to save lives in the country’s hundreds of one-way roads and eventually everywhere in the world.
Amazingly the solution could be extremely simple: the truck has a wireless camera mounted in the front and the footage is displayed on a screen on the back of the truck.
