Apple has documented a patent a week ago for an expanded reality-fueled windshield framework. The Cupertino goliath has named it Heads-Up Display.
Apple has a tendency to enthusiasm about its innovative work endeavors, particularly with regards to auto innovation. The ongoing patent documented by the Apple gives a look about its future innovation. A portion of the thoughts that the Cupertino goliath is looking for its future auto are intriguing. Outstandingly, its AR windshield may enable travelers in various vehicles to have FaceTime calls with each other. Apple’s patent stated,
“In some embodiments, an augmented reality display system included in a vehicle enables visual communication between an occupant of the vehicle and a remotely located user, including an occupant of a separate vehicle.”
Another feature uses internal sensors to find out stress in drivers and passengers by monitoring eye motion, heart rate, body posture, etc. The AR windshield would then automatically adjust its display to potentially reduce stress, although it is not clear from the patent how the display would do this.
Apple’s smart windshield may also use external sensors to detect the current speed as well as the posted speed limit, displaying both on the windshield.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has said little about the company’s plans to create technology for cars, including autonomous vehicles. Last year Cook acknowledged that Apple is working on car technology, but did not rule out building its own car.
Apple was initially reportedly aiming to release its own electric car by 2020, but a more recent report claims that the launch date has been pushed into 2021.
