We've always known video solutions were a window into the future, and Samsung's taken that vision literally.
Late last week Samsung introduced a video innovation to aid defensive driving called the Safety Truck. It’s a prototype that features a quartet of view screens hitched to the exterior of a semi-truck so drivers can easily see oncoming vehicles to change lanes, or view preceding cars to anticipate traffic lags.
Samsung explained the potential product layout on their website:
The Safety Truck consists of a wireless camera attached to the front of the truck, which is connected to a video wall made out of four exterior monitors located on the back of the truck. The monitors give drivers behind the truck a view of what is going on ahead, even in the dark of night.
The goal, the company elaborated, is to let drivers have an encompassing view of their surroundings to make the critical, instant choices you’re inclined to on the highway.
Video Solutions are imperative to first-class decisions in all realms, especially in the fast-lane that is business. Just like it’s lifesaving to see approaching traffic rather than to hear it—especially as we share the road with noiseless electric vehicles—it’s better to see who you’re collaborating with rather than to hear them. Gestures, and nuanced facial expressions are generally noiseless too, and missing out on those very human features while you’re on the phone, or emailing, can leave you an impaired driver on a dark road: unable anticipate responses, and subsequently unable to use your best judgement.
In an age where video can enhance your knowledge and understanding, seeing is not just believing. It’s knowing.
