Samsung are putting TVs on the back of road trains

If you’ve ever driven behind a slow semi-truck on a tight, two-lane road, you’d get the appeal of Samsung’s Safety Truck. It’s equipped with a camera up front, which sends a live feed to four weatherproof video monitors on the back.

As someone who regularly drove in outback South Australia I know first hand just how difficult (and scary) it can be overtaking trucks at times.

This is a fantastic initiative by Samsung, who are trialling the project in Argentina. I wouldn’t hold my breath for Lindsay Fox and co to start popping giant TVs on their rigs just yet, but you never know. 5 years down the track, when the tech is cheap enough, this could be the norm.
