Google is making way toward the self driving car, believing that human error is the main cause of accidents. Samsung may not have its own autonomous vehicles yet, but the company wants to keep the driver in the driver’s seat by introducing this innovative feature in the Samsung Safety Truck. The concept takes the traditional long-distance truck and adds some technology to aid both truck drivers and trailing traffic. The Samsung Safety Truck features a wireless front camera and four outdoor rear monitors to project the traffic conditions for both the truck driver and trailing drivers. This way, the drivers behind can see what’s beside or ahead of the driver so as to plan quick decisions.

In addition, there’s a night mode, which you can see demonstrated in the video above. Often, vehicles behind a long-distance truck cannot see oncoming traffic because of their massive size. Should a driver decide to pass a truck because he or she thinks the coast is clear, with another individual pulling out at the same time, the result could be a head-on collision – and tragic for all parties involved.

Argentina is an ideal place to test Samsung’s new safety vehicle, according to Samsung’s own promotional video, nearly one person per hour dies in a traffic accident. While Samsung sees the vehicle’s usefulness in Argentina, there are hopes that the manufacturer would bring these vehicles worldwide, including to the United States.
