Sometimes you must love technolgy...
 
Isn't this a fantastic concept. So simple and so effective!

What a cracking good video - mind you, how could the technology be adopted on a mass produced basis ? Okay on trucks, but what about on cars ? One would virtually have to install TV screens on all cars and trucks. Impossible, impractical ? Regards Styria

For the sake of safety it is not difficult or expensive. It requires a front mounted camera + Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to connect to an LED panel on the rear of a truck - I could build it for you now for less than $2000 installed.
I t is so simple and it makes so much sense.

Technology .... up until my wake up call I did not give it but lip service.
Will enver happen to me mentality.
If I can install a system that brakes my cars if the Driver doesn't, I will .. but only an aftermarket or Factory retrofit system that intragrates to the Cars Electronics.
Not my first miss judgement... ten years ago in the UK driving a Diesel Saab I overtook a Truck and was left stranded on the wrong side of the road because the Diesel ran out of power at lower Revs compared to a (Turbo ) Petrol.
Not a fan of Diesels ? Not here in Aus., but current VW Golf Diesels and others are a big advance in Driveability.

That was the old me; the new me is very, very careless...........
It all began when I purchased Mr Fast and Furious - you know; the Antinomian Defence!

Went to Pickles Holding Yard for write Offs to retrieve my E Tag. A huge place, Hundreds of Cars of all types. They said that between two and three hundred Cars are written off every Day! A lot of them had Air Bags deployed. High costs are not the sole province of Mercedes.
Did I mention that just for Air Bags, plural, $9000 for the Golf and $13000 for a Mercedes. No wonder so many Cars are written off when a few years old.
Adequate Insurance a must !

Ok good idea but a few problems... How many will get stolen? How many ppl will watch the TV & not the truck in front? How long before they start advertising on them?
I like how they think this is a good idea but don't seem to care about dark window tint on back windows.... Just like looking at a brick wall with no warning on pending traffic congestion. Did they forget why centre stop lights were invented?

This is a solution to vision blocked by a large truck in front of you.
If you don't like this solution do you have an alternative?
