360 Degrees of Vision

This new system giving the truck driver 360 degrees of vision around their truck is with us now. This system uses the four cameras on each side of the truck to create a helicopter view of the truck and everything around it live on the screen. Here, a system normally only available in expensive luxury cars is making its way into parts of the trucking industry where safety and all round visibility are essential.

 

This is another great idea from Samsung making the truck see-through on the road. More visibility equates to more safety.

The fitting of so many more cameras is also going to lead to more of this kind of thing. Truck bashing TV show A Current Affair using truck camera footage to illustrate road dangers.
