Samsung makes big trucks transparent in the name of road safety
The Verge
Back in 2009, Russian design house Art Lebedev introduced the dramatically titled Transparentius concept for improving road safety. It was remarkably simple: put a camera on the front of large, slow-moving trucks and connect it to video displays on the back, thereby informing trailing drivers whether it's safe to overtake the big rig. That's the exact same idea that Samsung is now pursuing with a new prototype truck. Making use of its abundance of outdoor displays, the Korean company has stitched together a video wall of four displays at the rear of the truck, which transmits video captured by a wireless camera at the front.

According to the company, a trucking analyst has said 3-D printing's rapid climb will enable manufacturers to source more of their materials closer to the factory, making national truckers more dependent on local freight networks to deliver materials.
