Samsung's Truck is an Aftermarket Sensation
Jun 26, 2015

Car audio retailers, here’s a technology inspiration and a reason to pursue fleet customers for the tech coming down the road.

Samsung announced a prototype Safety Truck that takes a simple front facing camera and engineers a new way to save lives.

Samsung turned the truck’s rear doors into a video wall. So the driver behind the truck gets a video image of the traffic in front of the truck. This is especially helpful on two-lane roads where a driver may want to pass a slow truck. Now he gets a better view.

It’s also helpful in traffic if there’s a sudden slowdown.

The technology is being tested in Argentina where there are a lot of smaller roads and many people are killed while passing trucks, and it is making headlines in the US.

The video wall on the back of the truck includes four monitors and the system supports night vision.

Car Tunes deserves a big round of applause for their services. I went into Car Tunes because I'd suddenly lost the whole right channel of my MINI's stereo. I walked in thinking I was due for a new set of speakers at the very least, but Mike helped me troubleshoot the issue. His experience & expertise helped me find the issue (a loose plug) and fix it right away. I then worked with Dave on the theoretical "what can I do to upgrade my system" question, and he was flat-out brilliant. He listened to my stock system and recommended a quick, simple upgrade of a slimline/shallow 10" subwoofer for the boot and an amp mounted under the seat. What's more, they had availability to do the install THAT DAY. In a few hours my car was out the door, and grinning from ear to ear. I typically don't make big purchases without research, but i had heard of Car Tunes' reputation ahead of time, and I was so comfortable with Mike and Dave that I bought on the spot. Dave suggested a setup that was very reasonable price-wise, but exceptional in quality and end result. I could not be happier! Car Tunes will be my first and only stop for future car audio needs, and a radar/laser detector when the time comes. Car Tunes is top-notch, from people to products.
