Lorries with  screens will change the face of our roads

More often and farther we travel  in Poland we can recognize  better roads, but the level of security on them still leaves much to be desired, due to a dominant yet, “one line roads”.

Although for many years there are revolutionary ideas that will change this status .We are so far not implemented solutions, the most banal to make, and yet so useful, such as the concept of “SafetyTruck” proposed by engineers from Samsung.

This is about to show on the back of lorries, four screens that constantly display picture of the front of the Car.

In this way, the drivery would have a much wider field of view, which is extremely important, for example. During commencement safe overtaking.

The idea is not new, but today’s  technology, is a lot cheaper and more accessible , should positively affect its rapid implementation. Fingers crossed.

    Nice idea. It really can increase road safety.

  2. nice idea indeed, however i see it conflicting with the innovation in self driving cars. do we really need screens when cars are not driven on sight, but based on data

    In my opinion, it is a really great solution. Due to the fact that I travel a lot across Poland and a vast majority of the routes that I have to use are still in a poor condition (especially regional roads), sometimes it is difficult, dangerous to overtake. What is more, while driving behind a truck during bad wetaher, it is alomost impossible to ascertain how many vehicles are travelling in front of it.
    Moreover, I would like to emphasize that even though automobile manufacturers have already decided to focus on developing driverless cars that will base on very accurate map data (exact position of the curbs and lane lines, trees and signs, local speed limits and other relevant rules), these car will still be equipped with specific radars and sensors to monitor the environment – detecting temporary obstacles – in order to provide broadly defined safety for the passengers. In my opinion, since those two ideas do not collide with each other, it would be great to bind them into one, even more advanced concept. However, it should be stressed that it would be crucial to develop sensors that could also analyze, read the picture from the semi-trailers’ screens.
