Samsung released a video showcasing its new “Safety Truck” technology, which links various onboard vehicle cameras and turns the back of a semi-trailer into a large, heads-up display screen.

The Safety Truck has a wireless camera attached to the front, connected to a video wall made out of four exterior monitors located on the back of the truck.

The truck will run pilot tests in Argentina, a country of mostly two-lane roads and one of the highest rates of auto accidents in the world.

The camera systems allow a driver struck behind a big rig to access the same view the truck driver has. The concept allows following drivers visual information about the road ahead – specifically road hazards, accidents or unsafe drivers. Drivers can better anticipate problems and changing conditions instead of merely reacting to brake lights in front of their vehicle.

The next step according to Samsung’s company blog is to perform the corresponding tests in order to comply with the existing national protocols and obtain the necessary permits and approvals. For this, Samsung is working together with safe driving NGOs and the government.
