Samsung's 'Clear' See thru Truck Aims to Make the Roads Safer #HNNTraffic

PHOTO: Samsung is working on a "see through" truck to help save lives on the road.

Samsung wants to leverage its technological expertise to make the roads a safer place.

It's a situation most drivers have experienced plenty of times: You're driving down a two-lane highway, stuck behind a slow-moving semi truck and unsure if it's safe to drive in the opposite lane to pass the vehicle

A prototype truck designed by Samsung shows how the South Korean electronics company hopes to leverage technology to make the oversize vehicles seemingly transparent.

A front-facing camera with night vision capability projects what the semi driver is seeing in front of them. The live video images is then projected onto the back of the truck, showing drivers behind the semi when it is or is not safe for them to pass.
