Samsung experiments with ‘transparent' trucks

Samsung is working on a technology to let people see through giant trucks on the road.

The safety truck prototype mounts a wireless camera on the front of the vehicle and live-streams the view onto a giant wall of four video screens on the back.

If you're stuck behind a large truck, you'll have a clear, real-time view of oncoming traffic.

You can also see any obstacles or traffic that might otherwise catch you off guard.

You won't see Samsung's high-tech rigs on the streets anytime soon.

The project is still in the early prototype phase.

Samsung tested it with one truck in Argentina, though it's no longer on the road.
