Samsung Transparent Trucks
Just one more distraction for a driver as his/her eyes follow the movement on the screen. Samsung should put the bucks into Drivers' Ed, passing trucks is only one way to die, texting & driving, drinking & driving...the list goes on.

Re: update of an old idea
Some army, I don't know which one, also made a camo suit by using a mini camera projection system in which the camera took forward live feed and the projector used to project them on the suit making it almost invisible to the naked eye. The only advantage was that the human eye from a distance could not detect it when the soldier was standing still. This project got scrapped up due to intervention from UN and due to high management costs.

Re: efficient and effective
@nasimson: Probably because this takes money and increases the cost of trucking considerably. It is not just about buying the electroncis it is also about maintaining them so that they don't get short circuited or develop faults etc.

update of an old idea
I seem to recall the US Army was testing a similar concept (video feed from camera on right side of vehicle displayed on screen on left side) as a way of camouflaging tanks - this was years ago - this is a nice update of that same idea.

efficient and effective
What an idea. Simple, cost effective, 100% compatible, works 100%., HUGE impact. Wonder why someone could not come up with this before?

Re: traffic accidents
They strapped a flatscreen, hooked up to a dashcam, to the back of the trailer... GENIUS.

Re: traffic accidents
This kind of thing is possible in high GDP countries. Also I would like to add that two wheelers would benefit more from this than cars and other vehicles.

traffic accidents
Samsung clearly has defined ingenious when it comes to protecting people from accidents. Most high tech trucks now have blind spot detection cameras installed at the back of their vehicles and I don't think a camera and display would be very costly. Also I think the display should be airtight and waterproof because most of these accidents happen during the rainy season maybe due to heavy rain and/or slippery roads.
